Hi, Long time lurker, first-time poster. We have a deposit on a 300sqm land within a 10min walking distance to Tallawong Station and is likely to settle in mid of this year We are a family of 4 (including 2 high school-aged kids). Being close to the station was a major requirement as we have 3 in the family travelling to the city every day. As someone in my mid-40s, I am not too keen on building a double-storey and am instead rooting for a 3 bed with 2 living single storey home. I do understand the space/privacy double-storey offers but cannot be bothered with the maintenance and cost involved with it. The land didn't come cheap and if we build the double-storey it would be 950-960K. There are HnL packages currently being sold for lesser than around that area for similar land size and their inclusions are similar to what we would want in our build. So I am unable to justify the final cost we would incur for a double-storey. My intention is to somewhere down the line get a bigger plot elsewhere(also single storey) and rent this single storey out if I feel space is an issue. Is there a glaring point I am missing to think of? Am I making a mistake by not building a double-storey in that area? If I stick to building a single storey, what will happen to property value if I am surrounded by double storeys if there is a need to sell? Am I limiting the market? Would the single storey in a couple years time be rentable despite the apartments being built around the station? Please excuse the naivety around the questions, this will be our first property.
