When searching for a suitable block of land for your new home, it's important to consider a few things. We've outlined some tips to help you get ahead faster.
Find Out What You Can Afford
Make sure to determine your affordability first. This will enable you to search for land that's within a suitable price range. We recommend contacting your MWC Advisor first to get a clearer idea of how much you can potentially borrow.
Search Areas for Available Land
You can search on websites such as realestate.com.au to see what land options are available within or nearby to your preferred location. It's a good idea to add a price range to filter land that's within your affordability. Sometimes a little flexibility with locations can allow you to find more affordable or larger blocks of land.
Look for Level Blocks to Minimise Site Costs
The block of land you select should be a level block free from obstructions and suitable for our builders. This will keep site costs at a minimum. Most estates will feature blocks which have been leveled and already have sewer and water connections available. Your MWC Advisor can help to determine if a block you've found is suitable.
Secure Your Block of Land
Once you've found a block of land, you should contact the agent to ensure it's still available and find out how to put the block on hold. Generally, the agent will require a holding deposit. This deposit is held in an account to reserve the block and should be fully refundable to you, should you choose not to proceed with your purchase for any reason.
You can ask the agent to send you the information that the builder will require to site your house up ie. contour plans, disclosure plan, design guidelines and any other relevant supporting information. With your block of land selected and on hold, your MWC Advisor can then explore suitable house floor plans and designs with you.
