Benefits to Buying a Home & Land Package for First Home Buyers

Benefits to Buying a Home & Land Package for First Home Buyers

Financial Certainty

You can trust that we offer 100% transparent pricing. House and land packages are typically significantly less expensive than existing properties, and you will only have to pay stamp duty on the land’s value because the house has yet to be built. This can result in significant savings for you!

Saving money on maintenance and upkeep.

When buying an existing property, one of the major considerations is how much maintenance and upkeep will be required. Older homes can be very appealing, but they often come with the need for frequent painting and repairs. Newer homes, on the other hand, require less maintenance and are often covered by a warranty. If you are looking to save money on maintenance and upkeep, opting for a newer home is a wise choice.

Move In Ready

At DRHomes we pride ourselves in building move in ready homes stacked with inclusions that you wouldn’t expect, such as solar power system, floor coverings, blinds and flyscreens plus much, much more! See our not-so-standard inclusions here: DRHomes - Brisbane Home Builder - Range Inclusions


When it comes to purchasing a home and land package, some buyers may be able to benefit from the First Home Buyers Grant. The Queensland Government has doubled the FHOG to $30,000, until 30 June 2025!  

Design Freedom

With house and land packages, you can not only choose from a variety of home designs, but you can also customise several aspects of your home to ensure it meets the needs and lifestyle of your family. This flexibility and input to personalise every space of your home to make it your own adds far more joy to the process of owning your first home than purchasing an existing house would.   


Our Home Coaches will work with you to acquire your land and build your home, you will be presented with a solution in which the best lot for your lifestyle is selected, along with a house designed to work best for the chosen lot of land. Working with an expert on a holistic solution will reduce stress and provide you with much-needed support.
