If you are in new home building mode, then here are some tips for you.
There are many different things to consider once you’ve decided to look at building a new home in Gisborne or the East Coast. You’ve got to select your perfect section, the building company and the neighbourhood. These can all be difficult choices. So we’ve done all the research to help you avoid costly mistakes, and get the best value for your investment.
House and land deals offer the advantage of matching the best house with the best piece of land. With this in mind, here are some considerations for buyers.
Your lifestyle needs should be first on the list when choosing the right neighbourhood. Will your place be nice and close to the best schools, shopping malls and your work?
House and land packages are a long-term commitment, so it’s important that you know exactly what you’re looking for. A great way to start is to write a check list of all the things that you need for your ideal lifestyle.
There are many physical attributes that should be closely considered when choosing your section.
Here’s a list of what you should look out for:
1. Soil Stability – if it’s unstable it may cause extra expenses during the construction process.
2. Size – are you looking for a small section that’s closer to the city or a larger countryside section that offers more privacy?
3. Slope – although having a sloped section can mean a better view from the balcony, they do tend to be more expensive to build on as they require more complex construction.
4. Shape – this should suit the house design you have in mind.
