Land yourself in your dream home in 8 stress free steps.
1. Confirm your finances and legal representative
Before you start looking at display homes near Newcastle, you’ll need to get pre-approval on your loan. Your lender or broker can help you do this, as well as helping you set realistic expectations on price. When you know your finances are ready to go, you can act quickly to secure your land for sale near Newcastle, where you’ll build your dream home.
2. Discover the home to suit your needs
To find your new home, it’s always a good idea to set boundaries on where you’d like to live, and draw up a list of requirements to help you weigh up options to suit your budget and lifestyle. Our sales team will go the extra mile to assist you as you select a block of land from our display homes, with detailed home pricing. Just make an appointment and start bringing your new home design to life.
3. Pay your holding deposit & exchange of contracts
Your $1000 holding deposit is fully refundable, and is paid initially to secure your block of land. This payment takes the block of land off the market and provides you with 14 days to exchange contracts. Once you’ve paid your deposit, your contract will be issued to your solicitor or conveyancer. When you are ready to sign, they will forward the email with the signing link – no special programs necessary. Wherever you are, you can sign your contract from any device with internet access. Upon exchange, the contract will be secured with a 10% holding deposit. This is paid in two instalments (5% on exchange of contracts and 5% on settlement).
4. Choose your home design specifications
Once you discover your favourite home design, create the home of your dreams and select your colours, fixtures, finishes, appliances and fittings. These are the personal touches that transition a house into a home.
5. Apply for approval
When we’ve finalised everything on our end and you’re happy with the plans, the builder will submit them for approval with the relevant regulatory authorities. This includes council and BASIX.
Your legal advisor will help you during the settlement process. If your land is unregistered, AVID Property Group will register it with the Land Registry Services after which you’ll have 21 days to settle on your block. If your land is registered, you will have 35 days from unconditional exchange or from the date specified in the contract of sale.
7. Build home
Once you have settled on your land and your plans and tender are approved, our home builders can get started on building your new family home!
