not sure if this is the right place in the forum to post. We have about $250-300,000 equity in our place currently and I am interested in releasing that to invest. The strategy we are looking at is to get an ABN, register as a developer and then buy new release land in estates, then we would use a builder (eg. McDonald Jones) to build the initial part of the house, complete the other parts such as upgrades, driveway etc ourselves and then sell the complete product to someone wishing to purchase a house and land package. Firstly what's the best way to finance this? Secondly having never built before, what would be the process and what sort of costs so we anticipate? I know to allow for the upgrades and Basix but anything else? Any legal implications to be aware of? Thanks in advance for the assistance.
