If you’re building a brand new home in Mackay, a house and land package makes it so easy to find the perfect home on the perfect block. So as you’re narrowing down your search, how can you be sure that a particular house and land package will be ideal for your needs? This quick checklist covers off the essential considerations.
- Is the location ideal for you and your family?
Will you be living close to schools, shops, transport links, Mackay’s CBD and your workplace? It can be helpful to find the right estate or suburb first, and then search for house and land packages in Mackay within that area.
- Is the specific site ideal for you and your family?
Can you walk to a park? Will you have space for parking or be able to add a pool, lawn or vegie garden if these are in your plans? Now’s the time to consider your future needs as well as your current needs.
- What’s included in the cost?
Different house and land packages may have different inclusions, depending on the builder, location and site. It’s worth looking over inclusions such as window coverings, hot water and heating/cooling systems and landscaping, and factor anything not included into your budget.
- Which design and structural elements can you customise?
Most home builders in Mackay offer the opportunity to customise your home through inclusion options like paint colours, flooring and fixtures and fittings. There may also be upgrade options, such as premium benchtops or a bigger oven.
- Will you be building with an experienced builder?
At Plantation Palms you can build with any builder you choose, and we can also help you explore house and land packages by respected builders such as Hotondo Homes and Gemini Homes in Mackay.
- Which incentives could you be eligible for?
Home building grants and concessions can depend on the location and value of your home build as well as whether it’s your first home purchase. Check out our guide to the available incentives in Mackay or speak with our sales team to see what you could be eligible for.
- When can you move in?
It’s worth ensuring that you’re really clear on the building process and timeline so you can plan things around your planned move-in date such as school, work and rent. Before you know it, you’ll be opening the door to your brand new home in a great location.
