Getting a house and land package can be a convenient way for you to acquire a place for your home bakery business. You can own both land and building, you can live in it once it’s done, and you only have to pay stamp tax for your land, leaving you with potentially more money to spare for the business itself. Here are some house features that you might want to check before you agree to purchase a property.
Check the Kitchen and Dining Room – If you want to turn part of your home into a bakery, then you have to check if the kitchen is large enough to accommodate the equipment that you plan to use, including the oven and racks. Also, check if your dining area can be large enough to accommodate materials for preparing your baked goods and even an area for packaging the finished products.
Check for Potential Storage Rooms – Choose a house that has more rooms than you intend to live in. These extra areas can be made into storage rooms for your ingredients and even some of your equipment. Check if any of those spaces will be cool and dry during any time of the day. Furnish it properly so they can store your ingredients safely and securely.
Check for Extra Building Space – If your best options from any available house and land packages in North Brisbane won’t be able to accommodate your baking business, the next best thing is to consider the lot. Choose a property with yard space big enough to accommodate a flat, shed or cabin. Check if the developer can build it for you. If they’re amenable to such improvements, best that you deal with them instead of searching for other contractors.
If you need a new house and are planning to build a home business, you need to be a little more fastidious in your choices. Ask your builders or realtors for possible house models that can accommodate the equipment and materials that you need for both domestic and entrepreneurial needs. Good luck on your house hunting and start-up venture.
