Searching for the perfect land to build your dream home on is so exciting, but can also take a lot of effort and time. Choosing a house and land package are a great way to make the whole process a lot easier!
To make sure you make the right decisions, there are a few things to consider:
What type of block?
Firstly you will need to decide what type of block is right for your family and lifestyle.
A wider block has many benefits, including allowing enough space for a triple garage or workshop, and is a good option for big families with kids. A backyard for the kids to play in, room for an outdoor entertaining area, and plenty of space for parking cars are some other good reasons that a bigger block is better.
For smaller families or couples a narrow block is a good option, and often results in a more cost-effective package. If you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, considering house and land packages on a narrow lot could be the way to go.
A longer block is also worth considering, especially if you like the idea of a swimming pool. You can work with your consultant to create a design that will suit your family’s lifestyle, and will make the best use of the space on offer.
To get the most design flexibility there are certain sized blocks that are best, a standard 12.5 or 15m block is recommended. Blocks of this size can usually accommodate a 4×2 home with an activity or theatre room, and sometimes both.
Choose your home design
When purchasing a house and land package, you still have the ability to make changes to your the house plan.
Tailor your house and land package by adding extra design features to suit you, maybe you would like a dressing room or storeroom, or perhaps a games room or bar.
Choose your location
When you are looking to build, deciding on a location for your new home is a big decision. Do you want to live North of the River, or South? Do your research and choose your location wisely, weigh up whether you want to invest in a more expensive area with a more affordable home, or vice versa. Think about what you want to be close to, such as your child’s school or your workplace, and make a list of priorities.
So when it comes to building your dream home, selecting a house and land package is a great option. Offering you the chance to be able to choose a house design, as well as the perfect block and location, a house and land package is great value for money.
