There are many factors that play a role in how much it will cost you to build a house in Australia. Generally speaking the price is around $155,000 on the low end. Below are the main factors that will determine the price of building a house in Australia.
1. Location And Land- Location is one of the biggest factors in how much it costs to build a home in Australia. Building a home in Sydney or the surrounding area can be very expensive, while building a home farther away from major cities can be far moire affordable. Land is also a major factor and land will actually determine the budget for the build, in most cases. A lot of land can easily cost upwards of $20,000, and the larger the land the more it will cost.
2. Materials Used- The type of materials you use can impact price and where the materials come from also affects price. Brick and brick veneer can be quite pricey. Lightweight cladding is up there too in price, but lightweight clad materials do allow the builders to create a facade that is impressive. Before you hire a builder, make sure you ask them where they will get the materials and then request a quote from various suppliers of those materials because this will give you an idea whether or not the builder is overcharging you.
3. The House- Your actual house that is going to be build is also a factor. The size of the home and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms can have a huge impact on price and so can any special features, such as a pool, central air and things of that nature. The style of your home and the size of it can mean the difference between thousands of dollars, so it is important to determine what your budget is and do research on how much your home will cost to build. Furthermore, you’ll want to have an idea of how many square-meters your home will sit on because this can mean a bigger price tag on building your home.
The type of home you want to have build and materials are two factors that play a role in how much it costs to build a home in Australia. Location and land are also factors, and let’s not forget to mention that the company you hire will impact price. If you’re willing to spend around $250,000, then you should have no problem building a home virtually anywhere in Australia, as long as it’s not in a major city.
