Spring Campaign - Love Being a Local

There’s more to life and more to love in Kara.

Locals love the balance

Life in Kara is all about the balance between work and play, the bright lights and the peaceful tranquillity. You’ll love how easy it is to get your kids on their bikes and off their screens. And, you’ll love having everything so close by. Every day is an outdoor adventure, but with the city just 25 minutes away, you never have to compromise on convenience. Live a balanced life, live a local life.

I love being a local because the community is nestled in natural bushland, with parks close by and so close to plenty of other infrastructure. The location is great, near the freeway, a major hospital, great schools and a bus station

  • What is the difference between titled and untitled land?

    Titled land means individual blocks have been physically created (which means you can see it in person and it’s ready to start building on straight away), and there is now a record of the specific lot through a Certificate of Title, which is registered with the Land Registry. The block is now able to be settled by the purchaser.

    Untitled land means the above process has not yet taken place. It could be under construction, or yet to be developed. When purchasing untitled land, you will be advised of an estimated Title Due Date by our Land Sales Consultant, for when your new block will be ready to build on.

  • What First Home Buyer’s Grants are available?

    First Home Owner’s Grant (FHOG) - At present the Government of Western Australia is offering a once off payment of $10,000 to assist first home buyers to buy or build a new residential property.

    The First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS) – this is an Australian Government initiative. You should discuss this with your mortgage broker or bank, as there are certain criteria to ensure that you are eligible for this. Usually, first home buyers with less than 20% deposit are required to pay lenders mortgage insurance. Under this scheme, the Australian Government guarantees to a participating lender up to 15% of the value of the property purchased that is financed by an eligible first home buyer’s home loan, and eliminating the need for the buyer to pay lender’s mortgage insurance.

  • What do different soil types mean?

    When building a home, soil type classification is an important factor, as it determines the foundation of your new home.

    Kara has Class A soil, which is the best soil type classification to build on.

    Here are the different soil types:

    Class A (stands for Acceptable): This is the highest quality site classification, which means there is little to no ground movement from moisture changes (such as sand and rock). With this soil type, there is no additional drainage specifications required and the builder can lay a standard slab on it. A class A site is most sought after by builders and is most common in land subdivisions in WA.

    Class S (stands for Satisfactory): This soil type is slightly reactive with only slight ground movement from moisture changes (such as clay sites). If you buy an S class site, you will need a combination of onsite stormwater retention as well as a connection to council drainage system.

    Class M (Moderately Reactive – moderate ground movement), H (Highly reactive – high ground movement) and P (Problem – includes soft soils that are subject to erosion) are very rarely offered.

  • How do I choose the right block?

    Considering the right block for you is extremely important. Firstly, know your budget, which includes the approximate building costs. Consider the location, such as proximity to shops, schools and parks. Look at the orientation of the block, as this can affect the energy efficiency and possibly your floorplan. Finally, consider the block size and shape, as this will affect the size of your home and backyard.
