For more insight on choosing the right package, here are some key considerations.
Types Of House And Land Packages
There are two different types of house and land packages to choose from. The first option is to select your land and choose from a list of home designs. You would often need two contracts for this option; one for the land purchase from the government or developer, and another for the construction.
The second is to select a package that consists of the land and a house already built on it, often fully kitted with the required fixtures and ready for you to move in.
This option, often referred to as “turnkey” packages only require you to have one contract since the developer or builder buys the land, builds the house on it, and then sells it to you in a complete package.
Turnkey packages are popular among house buyers, especially first-timers as it provides an upfront, fixed cost. However, you can better customise your house when you select a lot and then build.
Location, Location, Location
