Top 3 Tips To Get The Most Out Of Your New Home Build

Take Care of Everything With A House & Land Package

House and land packages allow buyers to secure a block of land and the construction of a home in one process and two contracts. These packages allow you to know the combined price of your new home and land from the outset so you won’t encounter any surprising additional costs.

House and land packages are often seen as the ideal solution to your new home dreams. You can purchase a house and land package by choosing the most suitable block and then customise the house design to your needs. Whether you’re looking for a new home to move into or building an investment property for your future, you can create the design to suit your budgets and goals.

McCarthy has house and land packages currently available in the Brisbane and Moreton Bay regions, you can view them here. Our house and land packages have matched the shape of the block with a house design perfectly suited to the land; choose your favorite and simplify the process of your new home build.
