Knocking down your house and rebuilding can be a great way of achieving your dream home without the stress of moving. As Australia’s knock down rebuild specialists, we have put together this guide to inform you about the process.
What are the benefits of a knock down rebuild?
Knock down rebuild homes offer a number of important benefits over moving to a new home. It means you can achieve a more modern, attractive home without having to leave the area you love. You can keep the same neighbours, and your children can stay on at the same school, while you get to live in a beautiful home which is tailored to your tastes and lifestyle.
How much does a knock down rebuild cost?
Knock down rebuild prices vary widely depending on the home design you choose, the amount of work involved in preparing your block, and many other factors – every case is different.
However, the cost to knock down a house and rebuild is offset by a number of important factors:
- You keep the equity in your land.
- You avoid sellers’ fees and stamp duty.
- You save on household bills as your new home will be more energy efficient.
- You increase the value of your home.
It’s also worth remembering that by building a new home, you won’t need to spend out on the costly renovations that are often necessary in an older property.
What factors are involved in the knock down rebuild process?
There are many stages to the process. Firstly, we’ll need to assess your property to make sure it’s suitable for a knock down rebuild. This can include soil tests, whether you’re planning to knock down and rebuild on a sloping block, and finding out which permits you’ll need to apply for.
Following this, the demolition of your existing property can take place, and we can start to build your new home.
