House and Land Packages in Townsville

If you’re buying a new home, as opposed to an existing one from its previous owner, there are two main ways to do it. One is to find and acquire a plot of land and then have a house designed and built on it. The second method is to buy a land and house package from a builder, so you’re getting the separate components in one transaction.

The former method, although undertaken successfully by some people, is by far the most complex and challenging process of the two. You’ll have two legal contracts, separate financing for each element and a lot more hassle than you’ll like.

How House and Land Packages in Townsville are the Best Option

Your legal representative will have to deal with the seller of the land as well as the builder of the house. You’ll also need to appoint an architect or designer to create the plans for your house or, if you’re happy to have a house that looks like several others, can buy some plans that are ready-prepared.

Stamp duty and registration fees have to be paid separately and local authorities have to be dealt with to ensure you conform to all regulations and legal requirements. With so many people and organisations to deal with, it’s almost inevitable that something will go wrong and delays will result. At the same time, costs are creeping in from all directions.

A far better option is often to buy the land and house as part of a complete package. That means you and your legal representative only have to deal with one organisation — the builder that owns plots of land and can build houses on them. Such a builder should also be able to produce a design for your house, saving the cost and inconvenience of having a separate designer.

Because the builder has sites and plots, all the services should be readily available — electricity, gas, water, internet, drainage and sewerage — so they only need to be run into your property. That’s a lot simpler than having services installed and connected from the nearest road.

Individuality and Uniqueness with House and Land Packages

Buying house and land together in Townsville or elsewhere doesn’t mean you’re restricting your choices or that you won’t end up with the house you really want — far from it. At Allora Homes, we have several sites available and each one has plots of varying sizes and with different features. You can, therefore, choose a plot that’s right for you and be sure it has the necessary infrastructure, with nearby schools, shops, leisure activities and good transport links.

Once you’ve found your plot, we can design exactly the house you want because every one we build is totally unique. We don't have standard designs and we don’t build estates where every house looks like the one next door.

We believe in individuality and that’s reflected in the houses we build. We’ll help you with your design, making sure it reflects your needs, is practical and will look great when it’s done.

Every house we build is the best we can make it, using the highest quality materials and the finest standards of workmanship. And because the house is part of a package, we’ll make sure it fits well on the plot as well as fitting in with the rest of the community. The outcome is the house you want but without the hassle.
