An important topic and good place to start is at the foundation of it all - the land your home is to be built on.
If you’re fortunate enough to have already secured land that works for you - congratulations! This step is easy to take for granted but obtaining land that suits your requirements can sometimes be challenging, so consider yourself having just hit the jackpot!
For those of you who are reading this and have yet to secure land - don’t panic. There are options available to you, whether it be via a public or private sale or house and land packages.
To get you started - we recommend you write down some key non-negotiable points for you, that your land must meet. Some questions you should consider prior to purchasing your piece of land are:
Is the section big enough and does the shape work to suit your requirements?
Is it a level or sloping section? (If sloping, you will need to consider the extra costs for excavation and retaining)
What are the local council rules or developer covenants for building on the section? Is there a minimum distance from boundaries?
Is your section serviced for stormwater, sewer, power and telephone?
Does your site have a geotechnical report?
If a house and land package is an attractive option for you, you can view our available house and land packages on our website, and like us on Facebook to be the first to hear of any up-and-coming packages.
