Why should you buy or build with Stockland?

For over 65 years, people have been enjoying life in Stockland communities. With a range of build and buy options to choose from, Stockland can help you find the perfect home type for your needs.

The key question

‘Should I buy a completed home or buy the land and build my house?’ is a question people who are looking to move into a Stockland community often ask themselves.

We help you answer that question by looking at the options available to you with Stockland…


Home  types to suit your needs

Building a house

Building a house – where you choose a design and style that suits your needs and tastes, then work with a trusted Stockland builder to bring your dream home to life – has the potential to let you enjoy decades of happy living in a Stockland community.

So why build rather than buy a completed home? According to Stockland’s Development Manager Hannah Madill, it comes down to being completely comfortable with the end product. “Building may take longer than buying an established property, but you’ll get the home you want,” she says.

Buying a townhome

Good things come in small – and not-so-small packages – which is what makes the versatility of Stockland townhomes so appealing. Perfect for first home buyers and downsizers looking for a low-maintenance lifestyle, they also include the options to have two, three or four bedrooms, two bathrooms and lock-up garages.

You can choose between a townhome that has already been built or buying off the planwhich means purchasing a townhome that has been designed on paper but construction hasn’t begun or been finished. Once we’ve taken care of all the details with our trusted builders, all that’s left to do is turn the key and step into your beautiful new home.
