What do you consider more important, the home you own or where you live?
It’s a tough one to split as we all want a home that’s comfortable, with modern features and is big enough to entertain friends. On the other hand, you want a location that will allow you to enjoy a certain lifestyle. That may be in an established suburb close to amenities, an exciting new coastal estate or a relaxing rural setting.
Well, if you choose to build, you can have the best of both worlds. Many people find the easiest way to get the right home in the perfect location is to purchase a house and land package. This is because experienced builders match the home to the location and layout of the land. You may not realise it at the time, but a house and land package will give you the best designed home for your block.
So, if you’re beginning your home ownership journey and you’re only focusing on the home you want to build, start thinking about location. There are plenty of blocks in Perth to select from, so let’s look at where to find the best value land in Perth.
Where is land for sale in Perth?
There are several factors you should consider before you buy a block of land. A few to consider in the initial stages include:
- Size and shape
These factors will determine the value of your block now and in the future. Remember, the best value land is not always the cheapest block right now. Look at land that could deliver a better long-term return.
Here are our top six suburbs in Perth where you should consider buying land. They offer excellent value now and long term, and will provide the lifestyle you’re looking for.
The suburb of Eglinton offers the ultimate coastal lifestyle. The estate is split east and west of Marmion Avenue and is filled with natural open spaces, playgrounds and a range of nearby dining options. With the more established suburbs of Alkimos and Yanchep just next door, there is easy access to shopping and school facilities. Its coastal location offers a great investment opportunity. You only have to look at the soaring prices of other northern suburb coastal areas – 10 years ago, they were new estates and now they are some of the most in-demand suburbs.
South of Eglinton is the suburb of Alkimos. The suburb features several exciting and growing estates, perfect for families or those wanting a sea change. While the estates might be new, Alkimos has all the amenities you need right now. The planned Mitchell Freeway extension will cut travel time down and you’re right next to the existing Butler train station and proposed Alkimos station. However, the real highlight is the relaxing coastal lifestyle and the chance to be part of a growing community.
Lying north of Mandurah is Lakelands. If you’re looking for a peaceful and relaxed lifestyle, while also being close to shops, schools and transport, this is the ideal location. Lakelands features beautifully landscaped parks, is close to amazing beaches and has an established town centre. You should make some time to view the display homes within the estate and soak up the surroundings. It’s an area that you’ll be happy to call home.
Baldivis is a haven for anyone into water sports. Whether it’s boating, fishing, water skiing or kayaking – everything you need is right here. Large shopping centres, specialty shops and schools are established in the suburb. Plus, there is easy access to the train line or Kwinana Freeway should you need to head into the city.
On the doorstep of the Swan Valley and Whiteman Park, and surrounded by glorious green parks is the new estate of Bennett Springs. For families, there is a range of nearby primary and secondary schools and, as mentioned, green parks with amazing new playgrounds. You’ll love exploring the Swan Valley on the weekends and with easy access to the Tonkin and Reid Highways, commuting to work is a breeze.
Bordering Ellenbrook and the much-loved Swan Valley is the peaceful suburb of Aveley. Having the established suburb of Ellenbrook next door means you won’t have to travel far for anything. Plus, with the nearby Metronet rail system set to be running in 2024, you’ll have plenty of transport options. However, there are enough attractions close by to keep you entertained, including world-class wineries and breweries and The Vines Golf Resort.
