Now we had a house in mind and potential land in sight, we were eager to get the ball rolling. Title release of Stage 1 land was due Sept and we were already in Aug. This meant we did not have to wait nearly as long as those who purchased when land was first released, or so we thought... more on that later.
After receiving confirmation from both Metricon and The Range (Australand) that the Metricon house we intended to build would fit on the lot we were interested in, we signed on the dotted line with Australand on 22nd Aug 2009. It was both exciting and daunting. We had committed to the build process and new debt. The thought was mind boggling.
