At Dennis Family Homes, we’re all about making the process of building your dream home as uncomplicated, clear and stress-free as possible. That’s why we offer a wide range of house and land packages. From the north-west of the state through to the south-east (and everywhere in-between), you’re sure to find the perfect package to suit your budget and lifestyle.
But what exactly are house and land packages? And why should you choose Dennis Family Homes for yours? We’ll take you through everything you need to know – and more.
Back to the basics: What is a house and land package?
Put simply, a house and land package is a way to get the best of both worlds. It allows you to find your dream home in your dream location.
This isn’t always possible. Say you’ve found a property you absolutely adore, but the location just isn’t right. Or imagine you’ve picked a suburb but can’t manage to find the perfect home in that area. House and land packages solve both problems. They offer you the perfect home and the perfect location. It doesn’t get much better than that.
How exactly does a house and land package work?
As part of a house and land package, you’ll have the chance to select from a range of blocks of land, and then customisable home designs to be built on that land.
It’s an easy way to streamline the process of a home build – you don’t need to worry about all the finer details. As your home builder, we’ll source the architect, builder, materials and even the block of land, if you need. We’ll take care of the permits and manage the process from beginning to end.
All you have to do is sit back and watch your visions come to life!
What are the benefits of buying a house and land package?
In comparison to other methods of buying and building a home, there are many reasons why house and land packages in Melbourne are the best way to go.
Firstly, they ensure you have a property that suits your needs and it’s in a location you love.
It’s also a lot simpler to do it this way. As your home builder, Dennis Family Homes will take care of everything from start to finish. No need to manage multiple stakeholders or worry about materials. We’ve got it all covered!
How does financing work for house and land packages?
When we say we’re with you every step of the way, we mean it. So our services go beyond just building and designing your home. We can help guide you through the financial side of things, too.
Financing a house and land package is usually a two step process.
Step one involves buying the land component and buying the house. Buying the land is a standard real estate transaction where you’ll get a regular mortgage.
Step two involves buying the house which requires a construction loan. This means you’ll draw down an agreed upon amount at each stage of the building process and only pay interest on that amount.
How long does a house and land package take to complete?
Every house and land package is different. But as a volume builder, we’re pleased to offer faster time frames. How? Because we’ve carefully chosen locations for our house and land packages in Melbourne where we’ve got a deep knowledge of the area. Things like the local planning regulations, building permit application process and landscape composition.
This saves us a significant amount of time. So you could be into your new home within only 6-12 months!
What’s included in a house and land package?
Different house and land packages come with different inclusions.
However, you can typically expect the following:
• The structural components (including an Engineer designed M class concrete slab)
• European designed stainless steel kitchen appliances
Alternatively, one of our consultants will be happy to take you through everything that’s included.
