So you’ve embarked on the journey of building your own home – Congratulations!
Here are a few helpful steps to building a new home that you might like to prepare for...
In terms of the steps involved, there is no right or wrong way to go about building a home. That being said, there are a few key processes to consider to ensure you make the right decisions, at the right time.
- Check the zoning of the land, request a zoning certificate from your local council
- Ideally, avoid land that is sloping or effected by soil degradation, this will impact stability, sight access and your cost of build.
- Check for connections (water, sewer, power). If connections are required, do your research on the costs involved & evaluate this against your budget and property value.
- It is highly recommended you have a builder inspect the land prior to committing to the purchase.
