Checklist to build a new home
Because Build7 has a reputation for doing things right, they will help you through some of the things to consider when choosing the perfect location. Here are just a few.
Jamie Cowan from Build7 Christchurch says it is very important for you to choose something you can afford. If you don’t have enough money, don’t buy the land. There is no need to spend too much money on a piece of land and hurt your overall budget. Consider that you also have to cater for the cost of building.
According to Build7 experts, it is critical to know geography, geology and makeup of the land on which the house will be built. Build7 can help you get a geotechnical report before you decide to build. This report will enable you to know the condition of the site and what changes you’d need to make before build.
Another very important thing that you need to keep in mind is the local area.
“You should choose a site that’s convenient. How far away is work? Is the shopping mall close by? If you have children, how far is the school? How’s the security? The site might be great, but if it is not convenient, then it just won’t work in the long run,” says Jamie.
The type of neighbourhood you’re moving into is a factor that needs consideration. You can do a bit of research about your potential neighbours by having a chat with them.
Build7 experts also say the services being offered and how much they cost is an important factor. Find out whether water, power, phone and rubbish disposal services are available, and their cost.
