Tips from an expert Canberra Builder on How to Choose the Right House and Land Package

Choosing the right house and land package within Canberra can be overwhelming, particularly for new home buyers, and there are a range of factors you need to consider ahead of purchasing a house and land package from Canberra builders.

If you’re in the market for a new home or house and land package in or around Canberra or you’re starting to do your research for the future, as local expert builders, we’ve put together some great tips to ensure the entire process is smooth and there are no surprises.

Tips for choosing the right house and land package in Canberra

We’re all unique when it comes to the style, size and location of our home, and your builder should be focused on creating a home design that suits your needs to a tee.

But how do you make sure you are considering all the key points when you are choosing a house and land package?

Here are some things to be aware of when choosing the right house and land package:

  • Look for a house and land package with a fixed price – the term ‘turn-key solution’ is a common one in the house and land package industry and you want to make sure that you are choosing a package that outlines all the costs upfront and there are no hidden surprises. If a house and land package seems too good to be true, chances are it is. Ask about inclusions, selections, and after-sale service.
  • Choose a style or design that will be suitable for now and in the future – future-proofing a design of a home is essential if you are planning on staying in the home for the long term. While you might have a young family when you move in, choosing a design that suits teenagers with multi-purpose spaces can be beneficial for resale value and also ensure your property will suit your family in the future.
  • Consider the re-sale value when selecting your location – when you’re selecting your house and land package it might seem unusual to take in consideration selling it, but ensuring you are keeping in mind the location and the local community is important to ensure you are building a house in a community that is desirable and great infrastructure.
  • Ensure you can customise your design to suit your family or needs – when you are selecting your house and land package builder in Canberra, be sure to engage a builder that can create a custom design to suit your exact needs. One size fits all doesn’t always work when it comes to home design, and choosing a builder that takes the time to ensure your home design suits your exact needs is essential.
