Perth House and Land Packages: How to Choose the Right House in the Right Location

Perth House and Land Packages.

Choosing the right house and land package can be a daunting task.

With land at a premium across the Perth metropolitan area, and around towns and cities like Bunbury and Busselton in the WA south-west region, finding the right lot of land in the right location can be one of the most stressful decisions you could possibly make.

There are a number of options available to you, with locations for land and house packages offered by an increasing number of builders, you really need to do your research.

Balancing region and suburb, block size home design and package affordability is a daunting process, and the easier you can make it, the better off you will be.

Turning to an experienced builder, with a large team of professionals and customer service representatives will be a big advantage. Resources and client care are important factors to consider when you take the plunge with a house and land package in the Western Australian building market.

When starting out on a house and land package journey, some of the big decision to start with include; What kind of area do I want to live in?; Are there good amenities and infrastructure nearby?; Where are the best areas right now or in the near future, is new infrastructure is set to come online in the near future?; How good is the standard of living in the area I want?

What kind of neighbours will I have, are there good schools and shops nearby? What about sports and recreation, public transport and access to good networks?

Design is also also a major part of your decision making process. You want to weigh up the home design that will fit your lifestyle with the location to match.

Questions to ask yourself include: Do you want to live in a smaller, more manageable home and property? Or do you really want a larger block, with more room for gardening, lawns, pool areas, sheds and animals? Would you prefer to live in a two story home or just a ground level dwelling?

A great way to start the process of deciding is to create a list of ‘must haves’ and a ‘wish list’ to get you going.

Create your ‘must haves’

Figure out what will really make you happy. What are you truly looking for in your new home. What kind of lifestyle might suit you best in the long-term? The process can be very emotional, and its easy to get sidetracked when considering the various styles and designs you might be interested in choosing. Keep your eye on what your core goals are and consider what may be realistically achievable for you before you make the decision.

Examples of ‘must haves’ many home buyers look to achieve include- Size of your kitchen, backyard area, number of bedrooms, media rooms, living areas, outdoor or indoor lifestyle considerations.

Create your ‘wish list’.

This list will focus on what could be of value to you that sit on top of your absolutes. These could be design ideas or interior styles you could potentially add later, or be part of your home package now. Common items in a wish list could be bench tops, outdoor entertainment designs and ideal energy systems.

Taking your time to look at various home designs and features can really help you narrow down your perfect home.
