House and land deals are becoming increasingly popular recently. They can be a great way to get into your first house and offer some great savings. Read a few of our tips on how to choose the best house and land package.
The first rule in any real estate purchase is choosing the right location. Do you prefer a more suburban lifestyle further away from towns or do you need to be close to the hustle and bustle of a big city? Does your home needs to be close to schools and public transport? Are there shopping malls nearby? Do you want to be a short commute from work?
Look at what is important to you before purchasing a property. Your home should be an investment, but also be able to meet most of your lifestyle needs. So make sure you have some basic requirements in mind, and a clear budget.
Size and orientation
The actual block of land that you purchase is very important. The size of the property will affect the cost. Do you want a large garden? Do you want more space out front, or mostly in the back? Orientation of the property is quite important too, especially if you want a sunny spot and to use solar panels.
Make sure you check out the surrounding properties. Are there any buildings, trees or walls that could cast shadows over your home?Heating and cooling could be less efficient, so this is an important consideration.
What comes with the house and land deal?
The purchase of the property does not automatically mean that you get everything you see. Make sure you know exactly what you’re getting for the asking price. Check if you’re able to make changes to the plan before building starts, because you might want something changed or improved.
