Why demolish and rebuild?

Determining whether you should renovate or build new will depend on a number of factors. You should consider your existing home condition, location, block size, and home ownership goals for the future.

Western Australia has experienced significant increases in land prices over the last decade, and as a result, many older properties now have impressive land value. More homeowners are now choosing to demolish their existing dwelling and build a new home. This allows you to preserve the equity in your land, and avoid paying stamp duty and associated selling fees.

First home buyers and developers may also choose to demolish and rebuild, as they find the land of their dreams comes with a less than perfect house.
