Hi all Okay my question is when we get to Oz is it better to buy a property or have one built? My oh seems quite keen on the idea of buying a plot and getting a house built to our specs he's also been told that its cheaper. Me on the other hand can only see dust and dirt ahead! I'd prefer to just buy a house and that be that. So does anyone have any opinions on which is better, cheaper etc.. Mandy x
I just thought I would let people know what a fantastic company I have found in Oz and how much I wish I had known about them before I got here. They are called Oz House & land, www.ozhouse&land.com.au - they are a real estate agent with a difference. They source land (nice plots) and put that together with the most suitable property,most important you know they are in good areas. You actually buy the complete package. Buying a property over here works very differently to the UK and they have been a god send with info and recommendations. You buy the property off plan, so you enter into a new build contract, but, the best thing is, other than signing the actually paper work you don't need to lift a finger. Oz House & Land do everything, all the administration, all the chasing, you literally do not need to be in the country. I have bought one and am looking forward to seeing my house being built !!! The most annoying thing is, if I had signed up a year ago when I was still in the UK, I could have saved 1000's due to the fast increase in real estate here. The house build would have been going on while I was in the UK and I would have arrived to a ready made home that had increased dramatically in value since purchasing it. Anyway, that is my experience and just wish I had known about this before when at home, take a peak...!!!:idea:
