Building density and the rise of off-the-plan sales

The need to combat urban sprawl has made medium-to-high density development of land a high-priority planning goal. The government encourages increased density throughout urban areas in order to gain the greatest community advantage from our roads, drains and utilities. This has led to a growth of multi-unit developments, particularly in certain areas of metropolitan Melbourne.

Purchasing property off-the-plan is more complex than purchasing established property, so it is advisable to seek legal advice before making an offer on an off-the plan property.
