House and land packages are one of the easiest ways to get into your own home; searching for the perfect block of land can be difficult, as well as time consuming, so having a professional do that legwork can be a great help. It’s also worth remembering that builders often have access to exclusive land, meaning more blocks available to you and more opportunities to find your perfect lot. Ask yourself these questions before buying a house and land package.
1. Is the house and land package in a good location for me?
Location is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a house and land package, you don’t want to move to a suburb that isn’t convenient for you.
Think about proximity to work, family, shopping centres, public transport, and all the other things you value in your neighbourhood.
2. Will this block of land be suitable for kids/family?
If you have kids or are planning to have kids in the future, will this location suit you in the years to come? For example, are there schools and daycare facilities nearby if needed? What about parks and playgrounds?
Think about what is important to your family; the location you choose has to be suited to your family’s individual needs.
3. Is the house configuration right for my family?
Every family is different and your home should reflect your family’s unique lifestyle. A big part of this is making sure that your chosen house plan includes all the rooms and storage that you require.
If you are into cooking, you may want an extra large kitchen. Maybe you love to watch movies, so a home theatre would be top of your list. We’re here to help get your must-haves into your home design, so be sure to let us know what you’d love to include.
4. Does the package offer good value for money?
When you do decide on your house and land package, ask about what’s included. Are site works included? Is flooring and air conditioning part of the package?
If you know what is and isn’t included, you can make sure you leave enough money in the budget for anything extra you want to do after the home is complete. A Momu consultant will work with you to come up with a package that includes the features and fittings you want without exceeding your budget.
5. Will this house allow my family room to grow?
Will this house accommodate your needs, not just now, but in the future? The answer to this question will depend on what your family looks like now, and how you think it will look in the future.
For example, will you need a study/activity area for older kids to do their homework? How much backyard will you want to maintain over the years?
