Aveling Homes

from 754 reviews, which is wholly owned and operated by Aveling Homes Pty Ltd, displays the official customer handover reviews that have been received by Aveling Homes Pty Ltd since January 2014.We decided to establish this review website for our customers as we strongly oppose review websites that allow people to be paid incentives in exchange for their reviews. As the ACCC says “The ACCC recognises the potential for incentives to cause biased reviews, inflating review results and misleading consumers in some circumstances”: ACCC Online Reviews Guide-November 2013.

Aveling Homes is proud to say that no review on this website has been received due to a financial incentive.

Any official customer handover review form that did not have an option for the customer to provide an overall rating of Aveling Homes Pty Ltd has not been published. Some clients may specifically request that we do not publish their official customer handover review. If a client makes such a request then we will not publish their handover review. Aveling Homes Pty Ltd will keep a copy of such requests. Prior to January 2014 Aveling Homes Pty Ltd did not conduct official handover reviews. Aveling Homes Pty Ltd has verified that all published reviews are those of actual clients. Aveling Homes Pty Ltd confirms that no review has been altered prior to publication except for the removal of employee and sales agents names in order to protect their privacy (this accounts for the underlined spaces in some reviews) is not associated with On the 1st of February 2017 Aveling Homes Pty Ltd consolidated its various trading names and as a result of this decision included the official customer handover reviews from the First Home Owners Centre and Aveling Developments. Building contracts for all reviews on this website were signed with Aveling Homes Pty Ltd. Aveling Homes possesses a copy of each of these client reviews. Some customers have opted to provide a star rating only without a supporting comment.

On the 14th October 2021, in the interest of additional transparency for the consumer, Aveling Homes Pty Ltd made the decision to remove all reviews that were submitted by customers of Aveling Homes Pty Ltd trading as First Home Owners Centre and Aveling Homes Pty Ltd trading as Aveling Developments. The number of reviews and the star rating that appear on this website reflect this change.

    We are extremely grateful with our sales person and the whole process of the design and details that provided, good start make a long way. Not to forget the rest of the prestart team and back office are helpful during the process. Hopefully it will carry on with the excellence service beyond the handover if that’s any needs. I hope we don’t 🙂 overall a fantastic job.

    I can’t thank Aveling enough for making my first build such a quick and smooth process. Any queries were handled efficiently and professionally, and I never felt like I didn’t know what was going on. Everyone has been fantastic and I would 100% recommend Aveling to family and friends.

    Builders know that once you have signed the Building contract that there is nothing a client can do in regards to variation pricing; ie you either accept the over charging or you just go without. The Pre-start consultant was belligerently disgraceful in that regard and soured the relationship from that point on. Some of the nonsensical reasoning given for the over charging will make for good reading. Before I signed up with Aveling I mentioned to the Sales Consultant that I had heard bad reports about them. _____ emailed me a link to the Product Review Website with all its glowing reviews. I subsequently see that Aveling was fined $380k “for engaging in conduct liable to mislead the public in connection with two online review websites” (quote from the West Australian). I was only informed after I signed the building contract that I was required to pay for the prestart variations up front or construction would not start. When I queried where this was written in the contract, I was not given an answer, only reminded that construction would not start until the variation was paid. This is disgraceful. I intend to document my experience with Aveling and lobby the Government that changes are needed on how the residential building industry operates.
