What Size of House and Land Package is Right for Me?

Your life can be made so much simpler when you decide to build with a house and land package in Mackay, but how do you choose a package size that is right for you and your family? We break down the options for you below when it comes to land, house and price.


Look at land size

The advantage of a house and land package is that when choosing between real estate lots for sale in Mackay that are close to schools, shops and natural surroundings, you’ll know that there are matching house designs that will be perfectly suited. Are you looking for a tidy first home with a low-maintenance garden and entertaining space? Or perhaps you’re looking for somewhere where you and your family can spread out and plant a veggie garden with a generous lawn for your dogs. Plantation Palms offers land lots from under 500 square metres up to a huge 3,345 square metres. That means no matter how much land you’re looking for, you’ll have a variety of options to explore.


Think about home size

Alongside land size you’ll obviously be considering home size too. Some people prefer to build smaller homes which tend to be more energy efficient and can leave more space on a block for gardens and outdoor entertaining. Others look for three or four bedrooms to provide room for their growing family. It’s worth thinking about what your life might look like in five to ten years and which homes would be well matched to that lifestyle.

When looking over home designs, it can be helpful to measure out room sizes in your current home and compare this to the dimensions on the floor plans. This can also be useful when making custom requests to your builder if there’s something in particular you have in mind.


Consider price

Finally, you will almost certainly consider your budget as one of your deciding factors when choosing a package. Plantation Palms has over 40 house and land packages on offer starting from under $400,000, providing multiple choices whether you’re a first home buyer or moving up to your second family home. A little extra investment can sometimes mean a significant upgrade in space and bedroom configurations. Don’t forget there’s also the Great Start Grant worth $15,000 if you’re eligible, as well as other financial resources depending on your situation. Ask our friendly sales team to help identify grants and funds that you might qualify for when you visit Plantation Palms.
