Over the next six years, the population on the Sunshine Coast is set to grow by over 40,000 people, with over 18,000 additional dwellings (source: https://www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Experience-Sunshine-Coast/Statistics-and-Maps/Population-Growth). This will see land sizes shrinking, and large front and back yards will soon become a thing of the past. However, this opens up the opportunity to spend less on land and yet live in one of the most idyllic locations – the Sunshine Coast!
An important question to ask yourself when looking to buy a smaller block in a central location is “do I want to spend money to live near great facilities, bars, cafes, walking distance to schools, or a larger block further away from such conveniences?”
As leading custom home builders on the Sunshine Coast, we at Beachside Construction understand the importance of designing and building a home that maximises the site – in terms of size, location and contours. We know that building your dream home is not all about the block of land, but designing beautiful living spaces that are comfortable and luxurious, and built to a top quality standard. This is what we do best!
The benefits of building a custom designed home on a compact block
Custom designed homes are more preferable because of the greater flexibility in personal style, energy efficiency and an all-round better investment.
Smart design choices play an important role in getting the most out of a small block of land. When you opt for a custom home, you also gain full control over designing your home space.
We are a leading custom home builder on the Sunshine Coast and have extensive experience in the industry. We understand our customers’ needs and know their priorities. Our company plans the layout of the house to utilise every centimetre of the available space while focusing on our client’s preferences.
The size of a block does not mean you will feel cramped and uncomfortable. We can extend the home vertically to two or three stories (building regulations permitting) to provide a spacious living area for you and your family.
As each year passes, we see land prices rise and rise. This is because as the Sunshine Coast demographic change and densities increase, the demand-supply gap increases, pushing up the cost of housing. If you’re building a well-designed custom home, you will have better value appreciation in the future. Furthermore, at Beachside Construction we use experienced, reliable and quality trades and only recommend the best suppliers – this leads to an even greater value appreciation as the quality of the home and internal fittings will stand the test of time.
So if you have a block of land in mind, or looking to move to the Sunshine Coast, please contact us at Beachside Construction. We would be happy to discuss your custom home design needs, and offer advice on what would work for your block of land.
