The benefits of house and land packages are numerous. Buying a home for your family is probably one of the biggest decisions you’ll make in your lifetime, so it’s important to get it right. House and land package are growing in popularity due to the sustainability standards as well as the rewarding lifestyle options available for the entire family.
Here are a few advantages of House and land pakcages to consider:
1. It’s new
What’s not to love about a new home? No one has lived there before you. Everything you experience in your new home and land is being appreciated for the first time. It’s entirely up to you to breathe life into its walls and give it a unique feel. Speaking of new check out our newest Display Village for ideas.
2. Lower maintenance costs
Since both the house and land are new it is far less likely that you’ll incur maintenance costs in the near future, certainly for any major repairs. An established property may bring some unpleasant surprises once you move in. Furthermore, your house and land won’t need any renovations to bring it up to date….because it’s new!
3. Builder’s warranty
Your new house and land comes with a builder’s warranty which means that if anything goes wrong, or any fittings and fixtures are faulty, this will be covered and fixed by the warranty.
4. House and Land Choice
You can truly make your new home your own. You can choose the design, layout, inclusions, and the block of land it sits on. If you’re someone who just wants the decisions made for you, then you can have it that way as well. The building company can help you with your choices and you know they’ll be fashionable. All this assistance relieves the uncertainty of the decision-making process. Check out our Cherrybrook Display Village here.
All new estates are built with amenities in mind because they are a major selling feature of any location for living. Your new house and land will most likely be close to transport, shops, schools, parks and services.
Rather than doing the building yourself, a house and land package will save you time and pain. A team of architects and interior designers work with the construction and development teams to ensure a lot of the time-consuming detail is resolved for you.
When you purchase an established property, unless it’s very new, there’s likely to be renovations needed to bring it up to date. This is most often a very time-consuming process that you have to live within. Your new house and land package is ready for you to move in, completely finished, from day one.
When you buy an established home you don’t really know what you’re moving into. Yes, you have a building inspection, but sometimes things are glossed over. When you purchase a house and land package, the price is the price. You know all your costs upfront, and if something goes wrong during the warranty period, it won’t cost you a cent.
8. Stamp duty savings on House and Land
Since this is a new property, you may be eligible for stamp duty savings. This saving could be worth thousands of dollars, and we know you have better things to spend your money on.
The latest eco standards are placed on your new home and every builder must be compliant. This will result in lower running costs for energy as well as other environmentally friendly benefits.
10. First Home Owners’ Grant
Why not take advantage of a generous offer? You may be eligible for a $15,000 Government grant in Queensland if:
- You’re an Australian citizen or permanent resident (or applying with someone who is).
- You or your spouse have not previously owned property in Australia.
- You are at least 18 years of age.
- You are buying or building a brand new home, valued under $750,000.
Remember, purchasing an established property does not make you eligible for the grant, so it makes sense to make your first home a new home.
