Tips for choosing the perfect location to build your new home

Finding the perfect location to build your new home can be an uncertain venture. However, with some thoughtful research and careful decision making, you can find the perfect spot for your new residence. Here are some key factors to consider.

Location

When it comes to finding the ideal location for your new home build, consider the nearby environment. Look for an area with good access to public transport, leisure activities, schools and medical care. Is the area safe? Are there suitable shops, cafes and restaurants in the vicinity? Also, take into account what the future plans for the area are, as this could significantly affect your quality of life once you are there.

Accessibility

It’s important to choose a location that’s convenient and easy to access. If you’re going to be commuting to work often, pick an area that’s close to transport links or major roads. If you have a car, scout out which neighbourhoods have convenient and safe parking and road connections. Additionally, if you have a family, consider opting for a location within easy reach of activities, parks and attractions.

Surrounding amenities

Another key factor to consider when selecting a location for your new home build is the availability of amenities. If you’re looking for a peaceful neighbourhood, avoid densely populated areas. Alternatively, if you prefer to be surrounded by hustle and bustle, choose an area with lots of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. A young couple will have different needs than a growing family. Also, keep an eye out for convenience stores, medical offices and other essential services.

Affordability

Research local builders and contractors in the area to get an idea of how much you need to budget for your home build.

I built my first home all on my own thanks to Sev and Marlise. I don’t even know where to start as words cannot describe how grateful I am that I found these two. To build my own home was only a dream that Sev and Marlise helped make into a reality. The unconditional support and dedication towards whatever I needed throughout the whole process made me feel so safe and looked after. Even though I built my dream home on my own it never felt that way, it didn’t matter the time or day, these guys went out and beyond for me with every detail and step of the process. They are people of their word that you can genuinely trust in this dog eat dog world. They are upfront and honest, it was never about the money but how you felt leaving their office. I had many friends and family tell me about the awful experiences they had building with other companies, so naturally I was a little frighten and on guard but Sev me Marlise squashed this with one meeting. But the biggest thing I can say about Sev and Marlise is that my experience was incredibly fulfilling and wholesome and I am so grateful for them and their expertise and professionalism. If I ever decide to build again I know exactly where to go! Thank you guys so much for all the love and support which has continued even after the build. Much love to you all!! 😊

Sev and Marlise were so incredible throughout our time with them. We’re so happy that we got to work along side an epic team. My partner and I had a vision, Sec and Marlise happily put up with our pickiness and changes (including after hour messaging), and did everything they could do bring that to life. They are so warm and welcoming too making this whole crazy big process more enjoyable. I couldn’t recommend these two enough!

When searching for a home loan you need to be able to rely on someone you can trust to be able to present you with all the options available and give you the right information to make the right decisions. Mike King from Better Way 2 Build is able to do all of this and so much more, with his extensive experience and knowledge he was able to answer confidently and made us feel at ease using Better Way 2 Build.

Mike King has helped my little family get into our own home by guiding us through everything that is to know for building a house. I did not know anything about building, I was shown and given 100% support for the process of owning my own home and I am still being supported during the build. I was given an amazing package deal much cheaper then I predicted with heaps of extras, in the location I wanted. Mike King has made it easy to understand the process and I would highly recommend him.
