Hi and Thanks for visiting our blog,
Just want to give you all a little background story about us & why we choose to build vs buying a established house.
We are just about to start our life together and have been planning a lot for our future. We wanted a family home which will be sufficient for at least 10 - 15 years time or even longer. We were trying to find an established house for a bit but in the end choose to build a new one instead. We feel that building will make a appreciate our house more and will make sure that we can get to choose everything according to what we want and what we can afford. With our budget, we really can't any better than Point Cook if we are looking for the closest one to Melbourne City.
We think that Point Cook may grow into a good suburb in the future which will increase the value of our land. Also if the government go trough with building Werrebie business district, the area will be buzzing with jobs & shops.
We have been looking for a while in Point Cook we have been to Alamanda, Featherbrook, Southwater Coast, Paragon and Saratoga, we were really close to get a land in Featherbrook & Saratoga at one point but because of some issues we didn't go trough, in the end we manage to find one that is perfect for us Kingsford Estate.
We are building on stage 8. The land itself is not titled until August 2013. We love this Estate because they do not sell their facility, just purely residential (which in the end justify the price). We realize that an estate does not need to have facility by itself considering the next estate is less than 500m away with all the common facility. The location that we choose is also very close to a huge park which will be lovely for the us & kids in the future. It is also on the walking distance to a local Woolworths & bus stop.
