When it comes to land size, initial home design is one of the most important things to consider. This factor will greatly impact your lifestyle, your family and your future.
Start simple – are you planning on a large home design with a massive alfresco area and balcony? Or a small (yet cute) house to suit a more modest lifestyle? The size of your home will naturally influence your decision for a block of land: the larger the home design, the bigger the block.
Livability matters. Having a large alfresco area to entertain and a pool for the kids will require a bigger block of land. But if you’re downsizing to less rooms and want a minimalist garden, a smaller building plot will be enough.
Consider what your future plans are. You may need an extra room or two at some point to accommodate kids or senior parents. If so you’ll need to buy a big enough block in the first place to accommodate this. Or what about an extra large games room or hobbie shed. If there’s no land space available for extra rooms you’ll have to go without. You don’t want to have to move house unnecessarily, simply because you bought too small a block of land.
