House and Land Packages in Cairns
Why House and Land Packages in Cairns are the Simplest Way to Buy your Home
Whether you’re buying your first home or moving up to something bigger and better, it isn’t a simple process and doesn’t necessarily get any easier each time you do it. And the process is made even more difficult if you have to first find your plot of land and then organise for a house to be built on it.
It’s clearly much easier if you can buy the house and land as part of the same package. That means you’re only dealing with one company, have only one legal contract to contend with and don’t need separate financing for the land and house elements. The whole process is simplified with less likelihood of communication problems, reduced liaison between different parties and fewer hold-ups as a result.Read More
Choose Your Package Carefully
Since you are dealing with only one company, you need to make sure it’s the right one for you. From a peace of mind point of view, you need to know your builder is properly licensed and insured and has the capacity and experience to build your house. Check out what they’ve built previously, looking particularly at the quality of workmanship and materials as well as talking to occupants if you can.
It’s equally important to know the builder is right for you. You may be dealing with them for a considerable period and you are trusting them to build your home, so they need to be open, honest, communicative and easy to deal with.
Once you’re satisfied you’ve identified a suitable builder, make sure they have available land in places you’ll want to live. Ensure the community is right for you and that the estate has the necessary infrastructure nearby — local shops, schools, open spaces, leisure activities and transport links. You don’t want to be in a remote area where it takes hours to get to and from work or to visit friends.
Check out the available plots and make sure they’re suitable for the type of house you have in mind. In general, the cheaper plots will be smaller and so limit the size and type of house you can put on them. They may also be sloping and have challenging terrain, such as rocks or unstable soil, so require more work and cost to build on them. The more expensive plots, on the other hand, will be larger, flatter and easier to build on, so these factors have to be taken into account. Also check the orientation of the plot, ensuring it’s sunny or shaded, depending on what you want, at certain times of the day.
The Ideal Package for You
Be sure you know what’s included in the total price, such as kitchen and bathroom fittings, driveways and fencing. On top of all that, ensure the package will fit your budget. Obviously, the higher your budget is, the better and larger the plot you can buy and the house built on it will be bigger, more impressive and more feature laden.
