Looking to buy land?

It can be difficult for first time homeowners to know what to look out for when buying land, there are many questions for those new to the building game. Understand how BAL, soil types, and the overlay will potentially affect your build and your budget.

If you don’t currently have land, have a look at our current Christchurch home and land packages.

Once you’ve purchased land there’s not too much that can be done about any challenges that may blow out the building costs.

So, make sure you talk to your home builder about any section you’re thinking about purchasing before you make a commitment.

Stroud Homes offers free site evaluations – no strings attached.


What can you find out during a site evaluation?

A site evaluation gives you the key information on your current build site or one you may be looking to purchase.

This information will enable you to compare one section against another and can save you thousands in site costs by providing important information about:

  • contours
  • cut and fill requirements
  • spoil removal
  • possibility of rock
  • noise issues
  • probable soil type
  • house orientation

  • tree removal
  • recommended construction slab, split level etc.
  • service set backs
  • sewerage requirements
  • water supply
  • irrigation requirements, and more!!


Who can get a site evaluation with Stroud Homes?

It’s just yet another way Stroud Homes helps you the homebuyer make the best buying decision and for the best advice going forward.

This service is also offered for clients who already have a section and are happy for us to do a site visit.

Our site evaluations provides us with plenty of information about your section so we can give you an accurate as possible quote without any preliminary testing.

The potential saving to you could be in the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars, as we will try to be as up front as possible with site costs, while other builders may try to hide these costs until after you have signed the contract.
