Tips for Selecting Your Block
When selecting a block for your new home, it's important to consider a few things. We've outlined some tips below to help you.
1. Get a clear idea of what you can afford.
This will enable you to search for land that's within your budget. We recommend contacting your MWC Advisor first to get a clearer idea of your affordability.
2. Search your preferred locations for available land.
You can search on websites such as realestate.com.au or lionlandmarketing.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.
3. 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 levelled and already have sewer and water connections available.
4. Contact the land agent to put the block on hold.
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 then ask the agent to email 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, we can then explore suitable house floor plans and designs with you.
