If you are looking to buy Vacant Land in Metro or Rural Locations, we can help you with a home loan

Vacant Land

Many individuals share the romantic dream of creating their ideal home or investment property in the perfect location. Once you’ve discovered that ideal plot of land, the primary challenge is securing the finances for land acquisition and construction. An incorrect approach to financing could potentially jeopardize all the well-thought-out plans you’ve made.

Banks have stricter lending guidelines for blocks of land than actual properties and, in many cases, they won’t finance remote or large properties.

The good news is that each lender has different lending guidelines so it’s still possible to get approved.

Professional Home Loans can assist with the following:

– 95% of the Value of the Land up to 11 hectares in size

– 80% on Acreage and Rural Land up to 50 hectares in size

– No requirement to build within 5 years

– Check for postcode restrictions


How will the bank assess your block?

– Land size: The larger the land, the fewer the number of people who are interested in buying it.

– Location: Land inside major cities and regional centres can be financed quite easily. At least one of our lenders has no location restrictions Australia wide.

– Access: The land must have direct access using an all-weather road but dirt roads are acceptable as long as they’re well maintained and the property can be accessed by a standard vehicle (not a 4WD).

– Services: The land must be within range to be connected to the electricity grid without excessive costs. Town water and sewerage services aren’t required as many Australian properties have tank water or septic tanks instead but some lenders will limit borrowing to 80% of the value of the property.

– Zoning: Land zoned rural or rural residential can be considered but industrial, commercial and farm/agricultuaral zoning is case by case. If the land is subject to GST, it will typically be seen as a commercial property by the banks.

– Land use: The land should be used for personal or investment purposes, not as a farm. Hobby farms with minor farm improvements and that generate little income from farm production are usually accepted.

 – Intention to build: Many lenders consider someone who’s building on the land right away or within a year to be a lower risk than someone who has no intention to build. If you’re not, the bank may consider you to be a speculative investor and may decline your loan.
