House and Land Package Forrestfield

Lifestyle smarts: Forrestfield

Ever been to the Darling Scarp? Nope, we hadn’t either. But when we went, it was like finding a magical endless pack of TimTams. It’s a dreamscape of waterfalls, wildflowers and native animals just chillin’ in the bush. Seriously, this place is heaven if you are partial to a walk or hike. Or you can just pack a picnic and lock-in some family time away from the dreaded screen-somnia.

So, what’s Forrestfield got to do with all of this? It’s located right at the base of the Darling Scape, only 15 km south east of Perth, adjacent to Kalamunda and close to Perth Airport. It’s a suburb with the best of both worlds: untouched Australian nature and modern facilities.

There are four primary schools and a high school, an indoor sports stadium, an 18-hole golf course, and even an equestrian centre. The Forrestfield Forum and Marketplace has a very handy 52 stores including a Coles and Woolies, so whether it’s cake, kale or new kicks, it’s all there. Tick, tick and tick. Yep, this City of Kalamunda suburb has earned its place on our list of house and land hotspots.

House and land FAQ

Here’s a few As to some Qs you may have. 

Let's start at the beginning, what's a house and land package?

Basically they’re a packaged deal, kinda like Oprah and Gail … or, Sunday roast and crackling. House and land packages feature a block of land from the developer and a new home from the builder. The two components are then bundled together into one all-inclusive ‘package’. This means that you get all the deets on the full cost of your build from the start. We call this transparency smarts. Or, x-ray vision smarts.

What's included in the cost of a house & land package?

Our advertised house + land packages include the cost of the land (as provided by the developer) and the cost of the home design (provided by yours truly). This means that your home will come with lots of not-so-standard stuff as standard, like:

  • Choice of six rendered front elevations
  • Full internal wall paint throughout
  • WA-made cabinetry
  • Deluxe 900mm stainless steel kitchen appliances
  • Choice of matt black or chrome fixtures
  • 6* NatHERS energy rated design

We’ve also factored a reasonable amount in for siteworks; however, this amount is variable and subject to change.

How does buying a house & land package work?

It may feel like you need house and land PhD smarts to de-code the buying process, but it’s actually pretty simple. Basically, a builder and a developer come together to market their two offerings (house and land) as a single bundle-buy (house plus land).

These ‘bundles’ are often more attractive to buyers as it takes the guesswork *cough, stress work* out of building a new home. Sure, they may be marketed as a bundle-buy, but house and land packages involve two contracts at the time of signing. Only a builder has the right to sell you the home and only the developer has the right to sell you the land. H&L PhD complete. Simple.

Are house and land packages cheaper? Fill me in on the savings

Yep, you’re onto it. The savings smarts are hard to ignore with H&L packages. It all starts with buyers (aka, you) knowing the full cost of their home from the start. You also get the best possible price for the house AND the land, without the hassle of negotiations. Oh, and stamp duty only has to be paid on the value of the vacant land. It’s a pretty sweet set up!

What’s the deal with negotiating on house and land packages?

Well, the deal is … there isn’t one. Unfortunately house and land packages can’t be negotiated as they’re fixed cost bundle-buys. Wait, don’t cry. Each component (the house and the land) has already been negotiated down to its BEST price by the parties involved (the builder and the land developer). This means that it’s already presented to you in the most attractive price package possible. What can we say, everything we do is for you, boo.

Do I have to pay stamp duty on house & land in WA?

Yes, but only on the land. Better yet, you only have to pay stamp duty on land valued over $300,000. So, if your block is valued under that amount – which is very possible when purchasing from WA’s new estates – no duty is payable. Score.

Are house and land packages eligible for the $10k FHOG?

All our house and land packages under $750,000 are eligible for the FHOG. So, if you purchase one of these – and meet the seven criteria req to receive the $10,000 First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) – the money (and stamp duty savings) are yours, all yours.

Can you create a custom house & land package juuust for me?

From there, we’ll get to work finding land options and designs to suit.
