House Only Vs House & Land Package?
House and Land Package or House Only Package?
Deciding to build a new home is an exciting option for first-time homebuyers, investors, growing families or downsizers due to the attractive benefits that come with building a home from scratch. House and Land packages are a great way to bundle everything to do with your new home up in one contract.
However due to the significant shortage of land in New South Wales, in recent years developers have opted to sell all or majority of their land direct to customers without a house included. like the land sales events at Huntlee and Watagan Park this weekend. This means that those who are lucky enough to secure land still need to find a design that suits what they are looking for in a home and what suits the block of land they have secured. Plus, they will need to meet all the different council and estate planning requirements.
That's where a McDonald Jones Fixed Price House Package comes in. Our team identified the need to help simplify the process for land buyers as it can be incredibly daunting working through the process of finding the right design for your lifestyle, block and budget.
What is a Fixed Price House Package?
A Fixed Price House Package is a complete house package or turnkey package as it’s also known in the industry. These types of packages include the costs to build your chosen design, including the great range of inclusions and optional upgrades you’ve chosen for your new home. These packages are fixed, including site costs*
If you already have your land, a House Only package means you can create your new home in three easy steps:
1. Tell us where your block is
2. Identify the designs that work for your block and lifestyle
3. Decide on the design, inclusions and your upgrades
Our experienced team of Building and Design Consultants love helping customers find the perfect home design for their lifestyle and their block. They make it fast, simple, and most importantly the price is 100% guaranteed.
Benefits of a House Only Package
The greatest benefit of a Fixed Price House Package is you choose the exact location and design you want. In traditional house and land packages, finding a package that satisfies both the location and design, in your price range is nearly impossible at the moment. With a House Only package, you can select the perfect home design for you then go find the ideal block of land to start your new home dream. Alternatively, find the perfect block of land and then select the best house design for your lifestyle.
House and land packages offer a great deal of savings, as do our new Fixed Price House Package, starting with the certainty that the House Only packages are a fixed price so what you are paying is guaranteed, and you can be sure of no surprises throughout your build.
Secondly, a McDonald Jones fixed price house package includes not only a stunning new home, but it comes with brand new appliances and the latest high-quality fixtures and fittings. Plus, our professional interior design team in the MyChoice Design Studio, will guide you to create a home reflective of your personal style to make your new home your own. From flooring to tiles, to benchtops to paint, bricks and all your colours, your new McDonald Jones home will be perfectly yours!
Lastly, choosing a pre-designed layout saves you loads of money, and time, as opposed to hiring architects, drafters, surveyors, contractors, and other tradesmen to create and build your new home. Our range of designs in our fixed price house packages range are the most loved designs from over 150 award-winning home design. Plus, our house and land specialists have curated the list so they are the designs best suited to the average size range of blocks, across a wide range of land developments.
Considerations for a Fixed Price House Package
When you're looking for a Fixed Price House Package, many of the same considerations apply to that of buying an existing property.
The first is affordability. Is your house package comparable to what you would pay for the house and land package or a ready-built home in the area?
The second is the house's design. Does the design you’ve selected have enough rooms, space, storage and does the layout cater to your lifestyle? Remember, you can customise some elements of the home, but to keep costs down, you don’t want to redesign the entire house to suit your needs.
The third is the inclusions and upgrades. Our House Only packages come with an incredible list of inclusions like premium appliances for your Kitchen and Laundry, reverse cycle ducted air conditioning, stone benchtops, flooring options throughout your home, Alfresco Cabana, turf to the front yard, letterbox and clothesline, security alarm system, flyscreens, automatic garage door and of course SUPALOC Steel Frames, plus all your site costs and BASIX requirements covered.
