Where you live is an important decision, and a lot of this comes down to finding the right block of land.

You will also need to decide on the size and orientation of your block in order to be able to choose the perfect design for your home.

There are some questions you should be asking prior to purchasing or deciding on a block where you will build your first home.

  1. Does any work need to be done on the block before it is ready to build?
    You will need to consider if land will need to be cleared and levelled before the builders begin their task. Another thing to look for is if the block has been connected to water, power and sewerage.
  2. Is your block big enough for your design?
    Trying to fit a 12m frontage on a block that is only 10 meters wide? It won’t work! Ensure you consider everything necessary to ensure your block is big enough to cover your design.
  3. What orientation is the block?
    Land orientation is very important as it will impact things such as heating and cooling costs going forward.
  4. What is nearby to your block?
    There are many different considerations to make when you are looking at the perfect location for your block. Look for things such as shopping centers, schools and parks.
