We will also delve into what a typical house design in such a package offers.

What Is a House & Land Package?

It involves purchasing a block of land within a planned community or estate, and then choosing a customisable home design to be constructed on that site.

The Pros & The Cons

There is one thing house and land packages do that makes them great, they’re an easy solution to getting your home built quickly. These package offerings are tailor made to suit a pre existing and available block of land, usually within popular land estates to support their value with existing infrastructure or promising development plans.

Most house and land packages have been carefully curated to include all the necessary costings of building on it’s allocated land, things like site costs & sizing requirements have been accounted for. This allows the price to be transparent so there shouldn’t be much additional costs unless there is changes to the plans.

While it can be a pro for some, house and land packages typically come with a pre-selected home design and floor plan to suit the block. Making it easy to lock in and start building, but for those wanting extra customisations – the prices and availabilities can change.

Understand the Process

Pick Your Design

Sign the Contract

Before signing the contract, ensure that you’ve read thoroughly and understand it, upon being presented the contract you’ll have the chance to ask questions to your new home consultant and get the clarity you need. Understand that the contract must be sent out for approvals both internally and through council so changes after this time are costly and can create time delays.

Get Council Approvals & Permits

Your builder should handle obtaining necessary council approvals and permits, but make sure to ask your home consultant if you have questions.

The Construction Phase

During this phase, your builder will turn dreams into reality. There’s plenty that goes on both behind the scenes and on your land during the construction process, so don’t stress when there’s not always visible progress on your site and understand that like all good things, your new home will take time.
