What is a house and land package?

You’ve seen them advertised all over the internet, but what is a house and land package exactly? A house and land package is a deal where the purchase of the land and the construction of the house is combined into a single process. In other scenarios, you’ll need to purchase land and then find a builder, whereas with a house and land package, this is taken care of in a single deal. These packages usually come about as a result of an agreement between land developers and building companies.

House and Land Packages North Lakes

The most common time you’ll find house and land packages is in master-planned development estates. Here there will be regular land releases and therefore more opportunities to sell house and land packages.

Advantages of a house and land package

  • Less Stamp Duty: With a house and land package, you only need to pay stamp duty on the land component of the deal.
  • More Streamlined: The process of building with a house and land package is much more linear than other options, particularly a bespoke home which involves many decisions.
  • Potentially Cheaper: As strange as it may sound, it’s often cheaper to build a whole new house than to buy an existing one, particularly if the old house is in a high-demand location.

Drawbacks of a house and land package

  • Hidden Costs: When visiting display homes, you need to remember that just because there’s ask for a detailed home pricing from your builder so you know what you’re paying for. Anything like swimming pools and landscaping will cost extra.
  • Lack of Choice: Everything action has a reaction and by simplifying the build process, you do sacrifice flexibility and choice in your build.
  • Land Value: The biggest indicator of growth is unlikely to be the house itself, but rather the land. We’ve all heard stories of a rundown shack by the beach selling for millions, which just proves a great location is what brings in the big bucks. With a development estate property, most of the value will be in the house, which does tend to hinder potential growth in the long run.
