RESIDENTIAL DEMOLITION FRENZY: TOP 5 SUBURBS BEING DEMOLISHED IN SYDNEY CBD AND SYDNEY METRO AREAS

Homedemolitions carries out demolition work Sydney wide. We service the Sydney City (CBD) area and surrounding suburbs.

If you own an old rundown home in a good suburb, right now you’re paying for it to sell for a knockdown rebuild.

People are prepared to pay millions for old houses just to have them knocked down and replaced with modern luxury style mansions.

Demolitions statistics and figures show that more and more people within Sydney’s middle-ring suburbs are in a demolition frenzy as old cottages and fibre homes get knocked down to make way for modern homes.

An estimated 800 historic homes around Australia are demolished every week to pave way for more stylish looking homes in 2019.

So just where are all these homes within the suburbs around Sydney that are getting a makeover?

Rampant building has been concentrated in suburbs such as: 

  • Manly

  • Pymble

  • Turramurra

  • Dural 

  • Ryde 

These suburbs are where original properties built in the 1950’s and 60’s are scarce.

Western Sydney has picked up the trend around the growth hub of Parramatta and Blacktown. It's not hard to see why, as most families are turning towards rebuilding after weighing the costs of a renovation. Sometimes the cheaper option is to complete a knock down rebuild.

Most people are not attracted to houses built before the 80’s. Very often these houses haven’t been renovated and require a lot of work. Rebuilding has become an appealing option for homeowners because of the use of technology at our disposal, meaning that these technological advances have made it easier to erect larger modern homes for a cheaper price.

Councils further out from the CBD have also tended to be more receptive to rebuilding projects than their inner-city counterparts, granting development approvals more easily and quickly.

Recently in Sydney suburbs such as Ryde, Gladesville, Denistone, Eastwood and surrounding areas, Home Demolitions has found some wildlife lurking in places that often get overlooked. Be it possums, snakes or even bats, we strive to make sure wildlife gets a chance to leave before demolition begins. In the event the wildlife doesn’t leave, we always contact the appropriate wildlife services so animals can be safely removed.

The USA’s EPA has recently enacted the Significant New Use Rule. This rule allows the government to evaluate asbestos use on a case by case basis.
