The process to purchase land and begin building your dream home can be a daunting. Often there’s a lot of information available, and different features in neighbouring estates which can make it tricky to find the right one for you.
If you’ve just begun your search for land near Armstrong Creek, here are 4 tips to help you navigate the process of looking for your next home and make looking at buying in a new community, like Harriott, less overwhelming.
Set your budget
Knowing exactly what you can afford will help you identify which homes are best suited to your budget. It’s important to set a budget that’s realistic and to have a good understanding of any fees or payments due along the way. That way you can help remove some of the worry and enjoy your new home.
Think about extra inclusions you’ll need in your home
Most of our builder partners offer a range of inclusions and upgrades to select from. There will be items that will be important to you and your family that will be top of mind. But it’s helpful to consider other items which are further down the list such as landscaping, solar panels and appliance upgrades when finalising your building contract.
Make a list of things you want to have easy access to
Whether it’s a “must have” or a “wish to have” it’s important to consider what you want to have close by. You may want to consider nearby schools and amenities, being close to family and friends, or how you will get to work.
Explore the local area
Drive around the local area to get an understanding of what life in a new suburb might look like. At Harriott we can recommend a visit to nearby cafes like, Warralily Cockatoo, just across the road or exploring Breamlea Beach. There’s a lot to explore in and around Armstrong Creek and the Bellarine Peninsula. Browse our location map for some further inspiration.
