5 Crucial Factors to Consider When Buying a Home and Land Package

 Step foot over the threshhold of any display home and you're likely to be enveloped by a desire to pack your bags and move straight in.   Once built however, the reality can be far different, and you may find yourself standing in a new home which bears little resemblance to the luxury and sophistication you were expecting. With this in mind, let’s take a look at the vital points you need to consider to avoid disappointment when buying a house and land package. Cost considerations - Transparency Many new home buyers are wary when buying house and land packages, as they fear hidden or unforeseen costs.  Some of these unexpected costs can be: 
  • site costs
  • connections
  • stamp duty
  • hidden extras
 By working with a trustworthy builder who values transparency in their pricing and costing, you can avoid any nasty surprises during the building process. Being Inclusive Buyers can sometimes find it difficult to get a clear idea of their ‘needs’ and their ‘wants’, when it comes time to decide on their home’s design and features. Working with a collaborative builder can circumvent these issues by:  
  • Providing a quality product that has many features as standard inclusions
  • Who will work with you to ascertain the best home design for you by assessing your:
    • Lifestyle
    • Budget
    • Expectations
 At Wisdom Homes, what other builders call luxury upgrades, we call standard.  We are passionate about providing you with the ability to structure a plan and provide you with a house you will love. Design Flexibility Nobody wants to live in a home which looks as if it has come off an assembly line.  You want a home that reflects your individual sense of style on the outside as well as internally.   With this in mind, you need the flexibility to add your personal touches and a builder who will work with you to stamp your individuality on your home. This can be achieved a number of ways, through: 
  • Flooring
  • Tiles
  • Facade
  • Finishes
  • Landscaping
 Quality control Your home is one of the largest investments you will ever make.  So, how do you know which builder you can trust? Look for: 
  • Quality construction and finishes
  • An established builder with a strong brand and reputation, recognised by HIA as a leader in the field
  • Testimonials - a valuable means of obtaining honest feedback regarding a business
 A Word on Location The key word when considering any house and land package must be infrastructure.  Traditionally, house and land packages have been located on fringe suburbs, where amenities are few or non-existent. Whether you are a young family needing access to schools or a commuter seeking close proximity to transportation, having the services which an established suburb offers, is a priority.  Look for basic amenities, such as: 
  • Shopping facilities
  • Hospitals
  • Doctors
  • Educational institutions
  • Transport
Finding established suburbs which still have the capacity for development is optimal, as the demand for quality lifestyle and premium locations, increase. Wisdom Homes prides itself on building homes within established areas - some ranked amongst the most advantaged suburbs of Sydney by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.  At Wisdom, our friendly team will work with you every step of the way.  We are committed to delivering the highest quality products and services, with transparency and value.Come and visit one of our Display Centres and find out why Wisdom Homes, is the wisest choice for you and your family.
