4 key things to consider when looking for your block of land

1. Budget

It’s no surprise that budget is at the top of this list – you obviously need to know what you’ve got to spend. But this isn’t just about the land, it’s your total budget that you need to consider; the cost of building, the cost of land plus the fees and charges that go along with it. 

That’s why a McDonald Jones house and land package makes the process so much simpler as our packages are 100% Fixed Price, so no nasty surprises, filled with incredible inclusions. 

We even have conveyancing and lending teams in MyChoice Conveyancing and MyChoice Home Loans to assist you from start to finish.

2. Location

Once you know your budget you can then start your search… obviously there are leading websites that will help you, like realestate.com.au or domain.com.au, however we also recommend speaking with real estate agents in the location you are wanting to build in about land they know of as well as your local McDonald Jones Building and Design Consultant.

Our Building and Design Consultants work with all the local land developers and real estate agents to keep across all the land available and upcoming land releases. So, when you speak with our team you will get great local knowledge to help you in your search.

When considering locations be sure to consider proximity to schools, amenities, parks and motorways. It’s always best to review Council websites or local news sites for information on the locations you are considering or any planning announcements that have been made for the future.

3. Shape, Slope & Size

With land being in such short supply, the type of blocks available are changing, so you will need to understand the impacts of the shape, slope and size of your block and the home design considerations that are impacted by these factors.

In most estates the developer will prepare the land, which makes it easier to find a level block that also has all residential connections. However, it is the shape, slope and size of your block and the local planning rules and regulations that will greatly influence the design you can build and also any additional costs that may be involved with excavation or retaining walls etc.

A McDonald Jones Building and Design Consultant can use their experience and local planning knowledge to identify the best home designs for each block, which can save you many hours of research and consideration.

4. Easements & restrictions

In many estates the developer has a set of rules and restrictions for the estate and each block, so it is important to understand that each block and estate is different. 

Start by checking if there are any easements and the setback rules for the estate so you can identify the size of the home you can build by width and length. 

Our team can assist you with this information or select a McDonald Jones house and land package and you will not have to worry as our team have selected the best design for each block. There may be an opportunity to change designs in some cases, so speak with our team to find out the options for the packages you are interested in.
