What Is A Turnkey Package?

Building your own home is a huge step in life. There’s nothing more satisfying than knowing that you designed your home to be everything you want.


However, many people will often find that they need to spend more money on their homes after construction has been completed.


There are often small details that they didn’t think about during construction that make a home a home. A turnkey package is a house and land package that is designed to be move-in ready from the moment you get the keys. Everything about your home and land should be completed with nothing left for you to do or worry about, except moving in.

What Are The Benefits Of A Turnkey Package?

No extra costs

One of the major benefits of turnkey home and land packages is that they won’t have any unexpected costs. The initial fixed price that you agree upon is all-inclusive and should include everything from the pre-construction site preparation to construction and decorating. This is a great way to ensure that your costs don’t quickly increase beyond your budget.


Streamlined and easy process

Turnkey packages are designed to make the home building process easy. The price of the package includes the land and house, so you don’t have to spend time and effort trying to find and buy land. You generally will deal with one dedicated builder instead of multiple different contractors. Instead of constantly having to chase around different contractors or builders to find out information, you can focus on other aspects of your move.

How To Avoid Overpaying Or Blowing Your Budget

When you take the plunge and decide to build a home, a turnkey home and land package is a great way to get the home that you want without blowing your budget. The fixed price for your home and land will be negotiated upfront and all you will need to do is sit back and watch your home come alive.


However, to ensure that you are getting everything that you think you are getting, it’s always a good idea to read your contract as it will detail all the inclusions that you have paid for. Have a chat with the agent before you sign your contract to ensure that certain inclusions such as landscaping are also included. Enquire about anything that isn’t included.


It always pays to ensure that you know exactly what you are and are not paying for.
