slider01 600x300

For most of us, building your own home on your own land that you sourced is the ultimate achievement. Building your own home has many advantages but mainly you can design a home that is perfect for you and your family.

However, building a house from scratch can seem like a daunting task so it is imperative that you consult a professional and experienced builder to assist you through all of the specific stages.

The Australian dream is to create a beautiful home that will last through the years. For over a decade, Xclusive Construction has been trusted with creating bespoke high quality homes and renovations in and around Canberra that stand out from all the rest.

There are many issues to consider when buying land and building a house such as:

  • Land boundaries and restrictions
  • Building boundaries and zoning
  • Covenants
  • Solictors
  • Insurance issues
  • Dealing with local council
  • Reports, planning and drawings
  • Connecting essential utility services such as water, gas, electricity, phone and sewerage lines
  • Legal fees
  • Land rates/taxes
  • Mortgages
  • and others, there is a lot to consider.

This is where having a reputable and experienced developer like Xclusive Construction on hand to help will pay dividends. We have been through this process many times and can help and offer advise at every stage to ensure that you thoroughly understand the development and realise the benefit of your investment.

It is important to know that when building a house and buying land separately there are usually two separate contracts, one with your builder who is building the house and one for the purchase of the land. Many customers prefer to choose a house and land package as then there will be only one contract which means less headache for you.

Your building contract will include the architectural plans of the house, the specifications which describe the quality of the building and the building agreement. Xclusive Construction place the highest importance on these documents to ensure a satisfactory, on-time and on-budget completion of your new home.
