Moving into a new home doesn’t have to mean a change of address. If your family has outgrown your home, or you feel like making a fresh start in a new home, but don’t want to move to a new location, then a knock down and rebuild is the ideal solution for you.
Ross North Homes has assisted numerous families in demolishing their old homes, and building a dream, brand new home on the same block. We have experienced first-hand how our clients can benefit from this home building process.
One of the main benefits of a knock down and rebuild is that you don’t have to relocate to a new suburb. If you love your neighbourhood and local shops, know your neighbours, your children are settled in a good school, or simply don’t want to give up the view you have from your block, then you already have good reasons to knock down your current home and rebuild a better one to suit your current needs.
Many people are under the impression that doing a home renovation or moving into a new home is cheaper than a knock down and rebuild. But in fact, the latter is often the more affordable option. When you knock down and rebuild there are no stamp duties involved, and you avoid any selling and buying costs. Compared to a renovation project, a demolish and build is also often the simpler and affordable choice. Many older homes require extensive structural changes to bring them up to date with modern safety and living standards, and the age of a home also often contributes to many unplanned issues and costs during the renovation process. This is why many builders charge more per square metre for renovations than to rebuild an entire home.
Along with renovation issues such as fixing wiring, plumbing and faulty structures, keeping an older house in top shape also costs more money. A newly built home requires little to no maintenance, and modern building technology has been drastically increasing the energy efficiency of new homes, and effectively reducing a family’s energy and water bills. Unfortunately, most renovations won’t be able make such a drastic difference to the energy consumption of an existing home.
