And finally, demand for detached housing and clean blocks to build it on has been compounded by the increasing shift toward more apartments and townhouses in all of Australia’s capital cities. This drives competition and means new homebuyers are willing to build if the type of housing they want isn’t available.
For homeowners unhappy with their current dwelling, renovation or a knockdown rebuild are also becoming more popular as a way of avoiding high house prices and stamp duty.
Although we are obviously biased, we advocate for demolition over renovation as it is far quicker than long term renovation and provides you with a clean foundation to build your dream home on without being beholden to what came before. There really is nothing better than a fresh start.
