There’s nothing like the feeling of building your very own home, but there’s also plenty to think about before you can get started. One of the biggest considerations is whether you purchase your house and land separately, or go for a house and land package. It’s a big decision – and we’re here to help.
So, why choose house and land? The many benefits of house and land packages can make your home ownership journey a lot easier. We’ve explored just a few of them below for you:
First Home Owner Grants
By choosing a house and land package in Perth, you may be eligible for the First Home Owner Grant. This is a one-off payment of $10,000. Plus, you may also be eligible for stamp duty concessions if your new land purchase price costs less than $300,000, meaning you won’t need to pay stamp duty at all.
The First Home Owner Grant WA and other concessions definitely add up, and with home loan interest rates currently at record lows, you can pocket some serious savings over time. Definitely something to consider!
Design your home to suit your needs
Buying a house and land package can save you from a lot of stress throughout your journey. One of the best things about a house and land package is knowing your new home is perfectly designed to match your block. This means taking block orientation and size into account, as well as giving you plenty of input into the finished design and the fixtures and finishes. This not only helps to add value to your asset but makes your home feel truly yours from the start.
Enjoy clear and upfront pricing
Upfront costs are a huge advantage of purchasing a house and land package. Having everything written down in black and white not only helps to take away a lot of the stress, but ensures you can budget accordingly. As a leading house and land builder in Perth, we’re here to make your journey easy with clear pricing that lets you know where you stand.
Join a thriving new community
With a house and land package, you’re not only getting to build your dream home in the location of your choice, but you’ll also be joining a thriving new or established community. From current and future schools, parks, shops, public transport and more, you can relax knowing that everything you need will be close to home.
If you are choosing to build your house and land package as an investment property, you’ll enjoy a number of benefits. Firstly, as your home is brand new, you’ll most likely find that it’s a lot easier to lease – which will save you time and money. You can also claim the maximum depreciation allowance for your home on your tax return, helping you pocket even more savings.
Just remember, though – the First Home Owner Grant and stamp duty concessions only apply if you are purchasing your new home as an owner/occupier. Definitely something to keep in mind!
