Choosing the perfect spot for your home

There's more to buying land than size and sale price. Dig a little deeper and you'll find that not all sections are created equal. What's going on below the surface and down the road will have a marked influence on the time and cost of your home's construction, as well as its value in the future. Like most of us, you're probably working within a set of parameters when choosing land - with minimum and maximum size requirements, areas you would prefer to live in, and a budget to keep you grounded. These considerations are important, and can be easily ascertained on face value.

Find out if the section is subject to a building covenant - a set of rules governing the size and style of home that can be built. Covenants can be restrictive, but they also ensure neighbouring properties are of a similar standard to your own - and in this way can maintain the value of your home over time. Think about what the area will look like five or ten years from now. Many new homes are built on newly developed land.

What amenities are close by? Are there shops, hospitals, schools and public transport? If not now, are they planned for the future? People buying land in established areas have their own set of unique future implications to consider. Does the property feature any protected trees that could one day encroach on the house? Choosing a section, like building a home, is your chance to call the shots, start from scratch and make your home a reflection of who you are and how you want to live.

We understand the land we build on

Build here with Jennian

Across the country, the Jennian Homes franchises have long-lasting relationships with land developers and owners. The benefit of these relationships goes directly to you. We have the inside knowledge and know when land becomes available to the market, which enables us to maximise your opportunity to purchase the best possible land available for your budget and personal requirements.

We can help you identify which services - such as water, sewage, gas and power - are already connected to the site. When considering sections of similar size and price, development costs and ease of access for construction could be the difference. It's important to know if the land you're considering can sustain the home you want. A geo-tech report will tell you the stability of the soil and a geographical survey will reveal the lay of the land.

Our homes are built on standard, surveyed, well-engineered sites. When we design house and land packages, we create the best combination of home design and site, to meet your personal and family requirements.

If you have land or are looking to subdivide

Already have your eyes on a piece of land to build your new home? We are happy to help you navigate and facilitate your introduction to the right people, to prepare the site for construction and create the home design that fits! 

If you already own land, or are looking to subdivide we can organise a free site assessment with our experts to help maximise building on your section. We can advise on what options are possible for you based on your section size and zoning.

From feasibility assessment and land surveying - assessing all the issues that could affect building, helping you design your dream home, arranging various council consents, to ultimately carrying out the physical build and adding all the infrastructure. Jennian Homes can help make the subdividing process easy and manage the entire project for you.
