5 Benefits of a House & Land Package
by Carlisle Homes
From cost savings and convenience to getting access to premium land, there are many smart reasons to consider a house and land package.
Building your dream house is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting times of your life. But searching for the right block of land and then trying to figure out the best house design to suit the site – and your lifestyle – can be a complex process. Buying one of our house and land packages, where we match up the block with the perfect house design, is far easier and more convenient. And the advantages don’t end there – you can also save money, take control of your budget and move in faster.
Here, Carlisle Homes Group House & Land Manager Taylah White explains the benefits of a house and land package in more detail.
1. Financial certainty
“The number one benefit you get from buying a Carlisle house and land package is the confidence of upfront pricing transparency,” says White. “This is particularly attractive if you’re managing a strict budget or a first-home buyer. But it’s incredibly reassuring for anyone starting the process, knowing exactly what you’ll spend and what you’ll get in return.
Buying a house and land package is a much simpler process than searching for a piece of land, choosing a suitable house design and then organising construction, because we have already selected the ideal house plan to suit the block.
To streamline the process even further, you’ll only deal with a single contact person from our House and Land team throughout. “Having one person as a contact, guiding you all the way, saves a huge amount of time,” says White. “Even when you have to sign a contract for the land purchase, we can assist in organising the appointment with the developer so you literally turn up and sign.” For most people who are busy with work, family and other commitments, the value of this saved time is priceless.
With a house and land package, you could be in your stunning forever home, like the double storey Rothbury Grand Atrium from our Affinity Collection, sooner. With four bedrooms – including an opulent master suite – two elaborate walk-in robes and a twin vanity ensuite with spa, it is the height of luxury.
Also from our Affinity Collection, the incredible, double storey Canterbury Grand boasts four bedrooms, two bathrooms, four living areas, including a huge kids’ activity zone and built-in study nook, plus a spacious open-plan kitchen, meals and living area that opens onto an entertaining terrace. You’ll never want to leave home!
3. Exclusive access to premium land
Buying land is a competitive landscape, so it makes sense to join forces with a large player. At Carlisle Homes, we you exclusive access to premium blocks of land before they’re released to the public. “If there’s an estate that has a release of land, we’ve already selected the best blocks based on the suitability of land in that release, and we package only the floor plans that are suitable for that particular block,” says White.
Carlisle Homes’ close partnerships with leading developers regularly gives our customers access to special offers. “At any given time, there are multiple campaigns running via our House and Land team, often with added value on land that our customers simply wouldn’t have access to if they were dealing with that developer directly,” White says.
4. Advantages over buying an established house
“Fixer upper”, “potential plus”, “old-world charm” ... there’s a whole vocabulary for the compromises that come with buying a house that isn’t brand new! By contrast, a Carlisle house and land package will give you a pristine home with a six-star energy rating, everything in perfect working order, the security of a builder’s warranty and, importantly, you get complete control over the final design of your home.
“There’s a common misconception that house and land packages include predetermined home designs that can’t be changed, and it’s just not true,” says White. “With Carlisle Homes, you can select the location, the budget, the design – whatever you need to make this your dream home.”

“Another advantage of a house and land package is that you’ll be moving into a brand-new, master-planned community, with all of the amenities we expect for a modern family lifestyle,” adds White. This includes schools, parks, medical centres and shopping centres, easily accessible and newly built.
5. Cost savings and incentives
The major saving when you buy a house and land package is stamp duty. This is because when you are building a new home, you only pay stamp duty on the value of the land, as the house is not yet built. This can mean you save several thousand dollars.
You’ll save in other ways too; working with a builder of Carlisle Homes’ reputation drives down costs through access to trade rates, buying materials in large quantities and other efficiencies so you can build your home for less. These savings can make a significant difference to the kind of house you will be able to call home.
