The advantage of staying where you are

Some of the most common reasons homeowners decide to knock down and rebuild their existing home, rather than renovating or buying a new home, usually have to do with location and/or budget.

A lot of people might love the location they’re currently living in, and building on land you already own is cheaper than buying land and building. The price to rebuild is a lot lower when you don’t have to pay for land.

Also, by knocking down your old home and building anew, you get to stay where you currently live and reduce the time it takes to find a new block.

Challenges of a knockdown rebuild

Stroud Homes Brisbane South Acreage is an expert in knocking down and building back up, but there are, as with any build, some challenges for the builder in some instances.

Removal of the old home can cause a bit of delay and access can also be a hurdle if knocking down on a narrow lot in a built-up area.

However, the team in Brisbane South has years of experience and will do everything to meet the client’s needs.

Before you knockdown

Before deciding to knock down your old, sometimes very beloved home, you should ask yourself if you’d be better of with a renovation.

You’ll have to consider how far you want to take the renovation. Is it just the kitchen that needs sprucing up to start with, and then maybe the bathrooms?

But how long until you want to re-do something? And what renovation is ever really complete?

Why not build a completely new home all at the same time?

But again, depending on what you want to do, a renovation can cost a lot more especially when it drags on and on.

That’s why a lot of the times, when already owning a great lot of land, knocking down and building a new dwelling is the wisest option in terms of your finances.

The only time it’s advisable NOT to go through with a knockdown rebuild is if you’re buying a property for location and want to do a knockdown rebuild but the upfront costs of the current home and land are too high. In this case you should just find vacant land.
