It is easy to completely overlook the fact that a building can easily be demolished and the ground prepared ready for a new build; indeed, for many Australian homeowners who love the location, a knock down is the perfect solution. Land is obviously a finite commodity, which is another reason to consider demolishing an old building and building a new house, which is designed to suit your lifestyle.
Maximum Return on your Investment
When all is said and done, you will make a lot more money if you knock down the existing structure and build a new design, one of the reasons why knock down and rebuild in Canberra is so popular. If you sit down and crunch the numbers, comparing the cost of a knock down and rebuild with major renovations enables you to make an informed decision and you can be sure that the value of a new build will far exceed the value of the existing property.
Single Company Solution
When you enlist the services of a knock down specialist, everything is covered by a single builder, with things such as:
- Initial surveys
- Old materials removal
- Ground clearance
- In-house design team
- Planning permission
Using the right builder eliminates the stress of such a project and with an assigned project manager, you are kept informed of progress. This type of builder has all the resources needed to demolish and carry out essential groundwork and has associations with major recycling plants that will accept the old building materials that are removed from the site. Once the ground clearance team have finished, the construction can begin and the builder handles the planning permission process, which can be very complex.
Staying in the Area
This is a major reason why an Australian property owner might choose to knock down and rebuild, rather than selling up and moving to another area. If you love your neighbours and are not looking to relocate, a knock down and rebuild is the perfect win-win solution. All you need to do is rent a temporary home nearby and within a short time, you can move into your dream property. It might be an idea to store most of your possessions and live in a serviced apartment while the work is going on, which can easily be arranged.
