How to Buy
When making a decision to build your new home you have many options. If you choose to build at Riverland Estate it will be a smart lifestyle move and also a wise investment.

There are two ways to buy your new home at Riverland Estate
1. Buy a block of land and build.
The most flexible option, where you can choose your own builder or from one of our display homes. Every part of the design and build process is up to you, which is fantastic if you have clear ideas of what you would like. We have provided Design Guidelines to ensure your most precious investment is protected and desirable.
2. Buy a House & Land package.
With this option a builder has already secured the land and prepared a home design that’s suited specifically to the block. You can change finishes inside and out, but not the floor plan. This helps reduce the seemingly endless decisions involved in designing a home. The builders have read the guidelines to ensure your home is protected.
Big Savings for New Buyers
Government Grants and Bonuses
The First Home Owners Grant is available to first home buyers and if eligible you can receive a payment of up to $20,000.
First home buyers may also be eligible for a stamp duty reduction when purchasing a new home. Stamp Duty is a land transfer tax – you pay to have a property transferred into your name. The amount you’ll pay is calculated on the value or purchase price of the property.
Circumstances also affect how much you’ll pay. Learn more about Stamp Duty.
The Australian Securities and Investment Commission runs the Money Smart initiative that provides information designed to help people make more informed financial decisions.
The Design Guidelines have been created to help Lot owners achieve a high quality standard in design and construction for all new homes at Riverland Estate. To protect your home and lifestyle, we are conscious of the importance of building well designed homes in your new community.
The guidelines allow for the establishment of individualised houses that will sit comfortably in harmony with each other, bringing about an attractive, liveable community, and a measure of investment protection for owners.
The guidelines will help with the build process and the establishment of safe neighbourhoods. In this way, they will create the foundations for maintaining, protecting and enhancing your new home and asset. All housing at Riverland Estate will be of a contemporary Australian design and character.
This vision can be achieved by carefully siting and selecting the colour and materials for buildings, and by ensuring front gardens are installed to enhance the Merri Rivers native Indigenous environment and River Corridor.
