If you are buying into a development in the early stages or entering into a ‘presale’ arrangement, it is important to know what the area is going to look like in years to come and how long the establishment of the surrounding area might take.
Get a vision or plan from the developer in terms of what is likely to be provided, such as:
Future school sites
Public transport such as a new train station
Shopping facilities
Public open spaces such as sporting fields and large parks
Community amenities
It is also useful to know what the predicted timeframes are for providing these amenities as some may be a few years away and that might influence your decision making
