If you’re trying to decide where in Perth to build your new home, you might be struggling to choose between buying a block of land or buying a house and land package in Perth.
There are lots of benefits to choosing a house and land package, but if you want to get it right, there are a few things you must consider before you buy.
Here are our top tips on how to find the perfect house and land package in Perth.
Narrow Down Your Areas
Knowing where you want to live will help you narrow down potential house and land packages.
Do you want to be close to the city, on the coast, or do you want a more country-style home in a rural area?
Consider the needs of your family, not only at present, but also in the future, especially if you plan to stay in your new home for many years to come.
Once you know what lifestyle you want, and what your needs are, search for areas that fit the bill and have house and land packages available.
Local amenities are always important when you’re choosing where to live.
Do you need to be close to good schools, shops, hospitals, or public transport?
Check where your nearest facilities are from any potential blocks of land you are considering and decide if that works for you and your family.
Define Your Building Style
What sort of house you build will have an effect on what sort of land you purchase.
Depending on the shape of the block, the style of home that can be built on it might be restricted.
For example if you want a large house, but aren’t keen on double-storey homes, a narrow block probably isn’t the best choice for you.
Many blocks are rectangle or square shaped, but some can be trianglular or usually shaped. These can allow you to create a more unique home if that’s something that is important to you.
Always check which way the block is facing before you buy.
Many people prefer a north-facing orientation as that means you’ll enjoy sunshine and natural light throughout the year.
Does The Block Slope?
If the block is on a slope, make sure that any extra costs associated with building on a slope have been included in the price of the house and land package.
Always Check The Small Print
Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure you know exactly what the terms and conditions are attached to the house and land package.
You don’t want to buy and then discover there are elements of the house design you can’t change or specific caveats regarding the block of land.
