What to look for when buying land

Finding land that’s right for you can be difficult when you’re not sure what to look out for. With the current Government grants on offer, the market for land sales is busier than ever, and before locking yourself into any purchases you might want to do your research to avoid hidden surprise costs later down the track.

Top things to consider include:

–    Are services already running to the block? (Power/Water/Telephone)
–    Is the land flat or sloping? (Dramatic slopes will increase earthworks prices!)
–    Is there deep sewerage available or will a septic system need to be installed?
–    Is there enough truck access for module loading?
–    Is it in a Bushfire Prone Area? (This may require BAL-compliant construction)
–    Does the Shire/Council have any vegetation clearing policies?
–    Check whether the zoning is suitable for your project.
