Knock down the old and rebuild the new

Love where you live, but outgrown your existing home? Here’s our advice: demolish it – and let us design and construct you a brand new one.

Canberra land prices have ballooned in recent years and the net result is that older properties often have much higher overall land values – with the house being worth very little in comparison to the block it’s built on. Because of this, more and more homeowners in established suburbs are now choosing to demolish their existing home and build a new one in its place.

It makes very good sense, especially since it may be less expensive than a complete renovation or extending. What’s more, the advantages staying at the same address means you can:

  • Preserve the equity in your land
  • Avoid paying stamp duty
  • Avoid agent selling fees
  • Stay in the neighbourhood and street you love
  • Design and build your dream home you have always wanted

Overall, deciding to demolish can provide the ultimate win-win: raising not only the value of your property, but giving you the added benefit of tailoring a new home suited to your block and your lifestyle needs. And remember: not everything needs to go. Things like swimming pools, for example, can often be maintained and protected during the demolish and build process.
