Why a knockdown rebuild?

If you're trying to decide between moving house, renovating your current home or knocking it down to make way for a new one, consider the benefits of a knockdown rebuild.

Knocking down your old home to make way for the new means a fresh start without the worries of selling up and then settling into a new neighbourhood, finding another school for the kids and starting all over again in an unfamiliar place.

Why uproot your life when you can enjoy a brand new home with what you know and love right where you are?

If you’re looking for a secure investment and your land is suitable, knocking down to subdivide and build one or more investment properties alongside your own home could be your key to a more rewarding future. If you’re in an area where living space is at a premium, renting out your investment will bring a steady stream of income over the years, or there’s the option of selling your investment property for a profit.

While a knockdown rebuild project will involve demolition and rebuild costs, these are likely to be a lot less than the costs of buying a new home and relocating, or even renovating your current home.

When you build a new home on a block you already own, you’ll avoid paying stamp duty, your home maintenance costs will likely drop, and because you'll be building a brand new, energy-efficient, modern home, there’s a good chance the overall value of your property will increase.

Opting for a knockdown rebuild over a renovation gives you full flexibility to choose a home design and all the extras that suit your lifestyle now and later on in life.

You won’t be limited by any existing layouts or construction quirks in your current home, and your new home will be future-ready, using the latest in building innovations, which means a 6-star energy rating and smart technology to make life easier.

You'll be able to choose from our Evolve andAscend collections and bring your own style to your home with luxe custom features and finishes from our Harmony Gallery – so you can build the home that’s just right for you.
