About this Event

Are you ready to learn the fundamentals of buying land and building a home?

Come to one (or more) of our free education sessions to discover all you need to feel confident and inspired.

Sessions topics:

Session 1: The financials - Home financing how-tos

This session will take you through everything you need to know about getting your financials ready to buy and build in Taylor. Our financial expert will talk to you about your monetary options and answer any questions you may have about getting a mortgage or financing a home. We’ll also explain what happens once you’ve bought your block; from contract exchange to settlement to starting your house design.

Session 2: Block basics - Find the block that’s a perfect fit for you

There are blocks of many shapes and sizes available in Taylor, all offering a range of benefits. We will help you match various block options with your top priorities. For example, do you want to be near a park, shops, school or public transport? We’ll also cover the differences between battle-axe blocks, corner blocks and surveillance blocks. This session will make sure you’re off to the right start with your perfect patch of land.

Session 3: Block design - How to get the most from your block

Learn how to use your block space best and ask the experts about any questions you may have. For example, how to best build on a slope, the latest cost‑saving tips and smart building design. We’ll also work with you to consider what you’d like in your home, like lots of bedrooms for a large family, or perhaps a home office or media room. Your block is your very own blank canvas, just waiting for you to create something wonderful. Let’s make the most of your land and give you the space you need.

Session 4: Going green - Landscaping and energy-saving tips for your new home

This education session will help you decide what the best ways to be more environmentally conscious and save money are when you buy and build in Taylor. We’ll cover insulation, glazing, solar power and all the latest construction and building techniques. Having the right garden also helps reduce your water bill with local landscaping gurus to talk to you about what sort of yard you’d like and what plants will thrive in Canberra’s climate.
