Where to start
Buying a new home is an exciting process. Choosing land and building a home allows you to achieve individual results to suit your specific lifestyle.
The best place to start when buying a home is to think about what you want in your new community and home to ensure it’s the right fit for you!
It’s all about planning and prioritising:
- Write down your budget and your preferred block size, if known.
- Prioritise your list of features. Number all your preferred features in consultation with everyone who’ll be living in your new home. This will streamline your search and give you confidence in the choices you make.
- Visit different areas and check whether transport routes suit your needs.
- Inspect new land estates, talk to residents, have a picnic, spend time with sales staff and view the display homes to see whether the community and lifestyle suits you.
With the groundwork done, you’ll be able to focus on purchasing your new homesite.
