Tips to Consider Before Purchasing a House and Land Package

A house and land package offers those looking to enter the property market a range of fabulous opportunities. There are elements of flexibility on offer, the chance to tailor the design to suit your lifestyle needs and unique tastes, and, of course, financial savings to be had. But before you jump into signing any agreement here are some key tips you really should consider.

#1 Local infrastructure planning

As with all new developments, there’s a need for local planning and infrastructure considerations to be well thought out. Everything from housing placement to the establishment of schools, shops, transportation and an entertainment precinct are essential. Don’t take for granted that these elements are always considered and, more to the point, take the time to ensure that what is on the table as far as future developments actually suits your lifestyle and needs.

#2 Housing location

It is important to be aware that as many new development are located in recently established suburbs, they can be a fair way from employment opportunities and the established area you are accustomed to living in. As with infrastructure planning, it may take some time before much of the new estate is brought to life, so you’ll need to be patient and ensure that you are comfortable with the extra travel needed to commute to work and school or to visit friends and family.

#3 Return on investment

If you are seeking an opportunity to buy off the plan and intend to sell early to make a return, a house and land opportunity may not be your best bet. Where your new home is part of a brand-new estate, you’ll find that the value of property is still relatively weak until the area sees more mature development. This means it’s a great chance to get in on the property market and potentially rent your home out as an investment; however, if you are looking for a quick buy and sell opportunity there are other ways.

As with all new home developments, it pays to seek the advice and expertise from a local and well-respected new-home building company. Dixon Homes in Canberra is part of an Australian group of builders that has won countless awards for their quality homes for over 50 years.
