The topic of renovating or rebuilding is always a hot one. While there are numerous TV shows devoted to renovating, it’s important to understand the flipside of knocking down your existing home and rebuilding in the location you love.
The reasons for needing a new home vary from family to family: some have outgrown the existing home, some bought a renovator’s delight and now have the funds to action this, while for some families the current design is no longer functional for their needs.
Whatever your circumstances, it can be difficult to decide the new home solution that will be best for your back pocket.
In most cases, a knock down rebuild is the most cost-effective solution, and the option that allows you to achieve the vision you have for your ideal home, as it can be customised to your family’s requirements, block and budget.
In our experience, a knock down rebuild is close to half the cost per square metre of a major renovation, and it does not compromise the vision of the custom home.
Renovations can be time-consuming, complex, and filled with unpredicted construction problems.
Rebuilding your home means you can avoid paying stamp duty or looking for a block of land that’s within the budget.
In most cases, newer homes can be cheaper to maintain. Strategically positioning your new home on the block to capture sunlight can assist with energy management. The latest building materials, technologies, and other devices such as rainwater tanks, can also be used to create a more efficient, affordable and functional home.
