House and land packages offer an exciting chance to secure a brand-new home with your own personal touches – but how do you begin to narrow down the search? If you’ve begun researching house and land packages in Mackay in 2020, look out for these qualities to make sure you’re getting the best value – and lifestyle – for your investment.
Consider location and proximity to lifestyle features
The conditions look favourable for home buyers to enter the Mackay property market in 2020, but you’ll still want to pay attention which suburb and location will be right for you. The key is to choose house and land for sale in Mackay that will place you perfectly for the many aspects that make Mackay such an attractive place to live: the area’s 31 stunning beaches, the river, city centre and the rainforest hinterland. Rural View is one such area providing well-sized lots and an easy 15-minute commute to Mackay city centre.
Look for space and storage aplenty
A well-thought-out home design can provide an incredible amount of space and storage, even on smaller, narrow or uniquely shaped lots. When considering house and land packages, be sure to look for space and storage where it matters to you. That might mean a spacious entertaining area out back, built-in robes in all bedrooms or a double garage if you have multiple vehicles. The Metropolitan 245 by Gemini Homes is one such example that fits the bill on all fronts.
Explore options with thoughtful design for families
Whether you have young children or a houseful of moody teenagers, the right home design can make a huge difference to your family. Many house and land options in 2020 provide a parents’ retreat with a separate master bedroom, but you can improve further on this with a walk-in robe and a double shower in the ensuite as is included the Mandalay 185. Other features to seek out for the family include a walk-in pantry to store plenty of staples, study nooks, a separate media room for gaming or movies, and plenty of space in the backyard. A bath is an often-overlooked feature that can be invaluable if you have small children.
Ask about the inclusions
As with all house and land packages, you’ll naturally want to have all the information on what will be included in your house and land project. Options such as the Mandalay 170 by Gemini Homes include air conditioning installed inside the home and a backyard that’s fully turfed and fenced. By asking about different home builders and their offerings to find the right package for your needs, you can have less to complete yourself once the keys are handed over.
