First Home Buyer? You’ll Want To Know About These 5 Advantages of House & Land Packages!

Mar 18, 2020 | Project Homes, Choosing Land, Completed Homes

If you’re tired of spending endless amounts of time searching for the perfect block of land for your new home, we don’t blame you!

With land supply in urban NSW areas dwindling, in turn, prices are also increasing – which can make your search that little bit harder.

We also don’t blame you if you are not sure where to start in terms of your house design!

House and land packages are one of the easiest and fastest ways to purchase a brand new home,” says Diana Sarcasmo, Mirvac. “It takes much of the uncertainty out of the decision-making process.”

The advantages of house and land packages

Here at Mincove Homes, we have a wide range of house and land packages in the Illawarra, Shoalhaven, Southern Highlands and Goulburn areas that can provide you with the ultimate ‘ready-to-move-in’ solution!

Taking the market by storm for a range of appealing reasons, our beautiful and affordable house and land package homes are ideal for easy, modern living.

House and Land Package

Aside from being of unbelievable value, here are our top five reasons house and land packages are advantageous if you are a first home buyer…

1. Clear costs & increased affordability

One of the major benefits of house and land packages is that costs are clear, upfront.

Clear costs are an important consideration for first time home buyers whose finance is pre-approved, and who may be on a tight budget.

While costs are usually very clear, you will also find that house and land packages are affordably priced.

The increased affordability of house and land packages is defined by efficiency.

Here at Mincove Homes, New Home Consultants are heavily involved in every aspect of the design of our house and land package homes, ensuring a high quality product and saving you the costs associated with consultancy fees.

Our reliable team of professionals have worked together to create a range of house and land package home designs, with plans that we know will turn into high quality and reliable homes for years to come.

During the planning stages, we ensure all of the important aspects that would otherwise take you a lot of time and money to nut out, such as the house fitting perfectly on the land, and the orientation.

We take care to remove the potential for poor design choices, so that our new home owners are assured peace of mind, at no additional cost!

2. They are a simpler, more timely alternative

A huge advantage of choosing a house and land package is that they save you precious time!

It takes quite a long time to find your own parcel of land, design your own home, and then select colours, fittings, fixtures and inclusions.

This process can take upwards of a year before you can even start to think about moving in, especially when you also take into consideration the time required to gain Council approval.

When you choose a Mincove Homes house and land package, you can have a new, modern and luxurious home that was built specifically for the site, in a fraction of the time it would take to do it yourself.

Our house and land packages offer a much quicker turnaround as you don’t have to wait for approval – this has already been taken care of for you.

3. Enjoy an easier financial process & reduced risk

Another advantage of buying a house and land package is that you can obtain your pre-approval for the sum of the land, and the house at the same time.

Here at Mincove Homes, we pre-determine the site costs associated with our house and land packages, enabling us to offer you a simplified, fixed-price building contract with no hidden costs.

Our house plans are already intended to suit the block, ensuring you a more efficient and straightforward lending process.

By the same token, with house and land packages, you eliminate the risks associated with doing a renovation or buying an existing home.

When renovating it isn’t uncommon for unforeseen costs to arise such as damage to existing structure, rot or poor workmanship – all of which can drive your costs up significantly.

Investing in a house and land package on the other hand, grants you with the relief of knowing that your new home has been built anew, from scratch, and has been designed to eliminate such unforeseen issues – providing you with a quality, reliable new home that you will enjoy for years to come.

4. Save on stamp duty & take advantage of the First Home Owners’ Grant

One of the biggest savings you will make with a house and land package purchase is on stamp duty.

You will save thousands of dollars when buying a house and land package, as you will only have to pay stamp duty on the land, not on the house – as the house has yet to be built.

For example, on a typical house and land package of around $450,000, you will save approximately $8,000 in stamp duty.

Also, if you are a first home buyer, you might be eligible to receive the First Home Owners’ Grant.

Here in NSW, the First Home Owners’ Grant was developed to assist eligible first home owners to purchase or build a new home by offering a $10,000 grant.

5. Know exactly what you’re getting

One of the most attractive advantages of house and land packages is that you can view the complete design before you buy, and know exactly what you’re getting!

Providing you with the ultimate ‘ready-to-move-in’ solution, our house and land packages feature quality inclusions as standard, with no hidden extras or mid-build surprises.

You will be able to view our range of beautiful house and land packages, and choose the right design for you – ensuring your purchase is one you are going to be proud of!
