I get a lot of clients that buy the blocks first with all of the best intension. The problem is that expectations are usually higher than what the budget will extend to. PLEASE just give me a call to get a realistic idea of what can be done a block. To the untrained eye, a block can seem easy to build on.
I always need to look outside the block and take into account;
Block slope, services, easements, retaining and access issues.
Just a little extra time can save you ALOT of heart ache, but remember if the block is cheap or has been on the market a long time – there is a reason.
