There is no right or wrong way to go about building your dream home, whether you pick your block of land first or start with your perfect house design. Buying land and building, especially that very first time, is an exciting first step and we’re here to help guide you through the process.
1. Confirm your budget and finance
Once you decide to buy a block of land, knowing your budget is key. Items to take into consideration include extras such as conveyancing fees and transfer duty on the land. If you’re obtaining finance, now is the time to sit down with your financial institution or mortgage broker so you know what you can afford to spend on your land, and ultimately your home build – the total picture.
Obtaining pre-approval at this stage can make things a lot easier moving forward and gives you clarity from the very beginning. You may also be eligible for rebates and government grants. You can learn more at www.revenue.nsw.gov.au/grants-schemes
2. Land selection
Now it’s time to find your perfect block of land. Keep in mind:
3. Purchasing land at Sovereign Hills
Once you are allocated a particular block of land at Sovereign Hills, this is when you are required to fill out an Expression of Interest form and pay a $5,000 deposit.
4. Contract is issued
Once your land contract is issued to your legal representative (conveyancer) you will have 30 days to conduct your due diligence and to exchange contracts. At this point you are required to pay 10% of the block purchase price.
5. Settlement on your land
Once your block of land is titled (officially becomes registered land), you will have 21 days to settle and pay the balance of your block purchase price. Then the next phase of planning and building your new home can begin.
You can learn more about the land available in the Sovereign Hills master planned community by visiting our Land Sales Centre or sovereignhills.com.au
