Why Demolish Your Old Home to Build New?

If you love your current home, but think it might be time for a change, consider knocking it down and building a new one right in its place.

Whether you already have strong roots in your suburban neighbourhood or have found the perfect block of land with an existing house on it, you don’t have to sacrifice your location to get the home of your dreams.

By demolishing and rebuilding an already-existing property, you can take equity from the land and put it into a new home—a home that fits all your current and future needs. You can also avoid expensive renovation costs by starting fresh whilst living close by to your network; loved ones, schools, and community.

Add an additional home to your block

If your existing block allows, we can plan for an additional house without demolishing the existing one. It’s an ideal solution for those looking to expand while keeping memories of the old home intact.

Your previous home can continue its life as the perfect space for visiting family and friends, or even creating an additonal income stream as a holiday rental home. With expert planning and construction, we can assist with maximising the possibilities of your block.

how much does it cost to demolish a house in perth?

If you’re considering a new build in Perth, you might have concerns about the cost of demolition. The cost of knocking down a house in Perth will depend on the location, size and accessibility of your property.

It’s a common misconception that renovating an existing property is always the more cost-effective option, but those in the know will tell you that renovations can become costly when you consider the cost of labour, materials and unforeseen problems that may come up as your project progresses. Renovations can quickly become complicated and time-consuming, which means costs rise exponentially.

When considering benefits and house demolition costs, keep in mind that there are several financial benefits to consider when weighing the pros and cons of renovating or demolishing. In contrast to the purchase and sale of existing property, there are relatively few transaction costs or fees associated with the demolish-and-build process, and, as an added benefit, no stamp duty is payable.

A brand new home may also offer several advantages, including the latest product innovations, lower energy bills due to efficient design, and the option to create a networked smart home.
