What are the advantages of a knock down rebuild in Brisbane?

The decision to buy an old, pre-existing home in a great area and rebuild over the top of it or simply do the same at your existing location, largely hinges on the purchase price of the new properties and the costs associated with tearing them down. Some clients don’t desire a change in scenery, simply a change in their living environment. By bulldozing your current property, you’ll be able to enjoy your same great surroundings and won’t be inconvenienced by having to move your children to a new school or having to say “so long” to an area that has meant so much to you.

For those who elect to instead knock down and rebuild a property that they’ve bought in a whole other region, they’ll be able to experience the wonders of living in a brand new setting, something only a different location can be provide.

Knock Down Rebuild FAQ

How much does it cost to have an existing home demolished?

This depends on a number of things, such as the size of the home to be demolished and the complexity of the job. Generally, however, most home demolitions cost no more than $20,000. The cost to have your existing residence knocked down is significantly less than the cost to purchase a whole new block of land, where you’ll be required to pay numerous fees and charges, as well as all the other expenses attributed to selling your existing property, such as the costs of a real estate agent, site inspections, advertising and so on.

At Unique Homes, our considerable experience and expert knowledge of knock down rebuilds allows us to provide you with a precise cost estimate for having your existing property torn down. Contact one of our specialists to find out more.

Is demolish and rebuild slower than simply building on another block of land?

Only if you enlist the services of a home builder who lacks the necessary experience to undertake such a project. The team at Brisbane Unique Homes ensure that the demolition process is effortlessly incorporated into the overall build process of your new residence, so it doesn’t have any noticeable impact on the total build time.

Are existing features such as swimming pools affected by a demolition?

When we discuss the demolition process with you, you will have complete control over what you wish to have removed or retained. The contractor will be able to provide you with everything you need to know concerning the demolition including existing features that may possibly be impacted.

How long does it take to demolish an existing home?

Most homes typically take between four and six weeks to be torn down, cleared and made ready for the construction of your new home to commence.

Advice for living elsewhere while the new home is being built

Always plan ahead. Ensure that you have your alternate accommodation booked well in advance of the deadline date for moving out of your existing home. Failure to do so may result in much higher rates.

Do you provide guarantees on when each knock down rebuild home will be completed?

Whilst we do offer a range of guarantees to our clients, such as fixed price contracts and a 25 year structural guarantee with all homes built, we cannot provide a guarantee on when the home will be completed. Construction of a new home generally takes between 20 and 38 weeks to complete, but as most our homes tend to be on a grander scale, 32 to 38 weeks is more typical. To learn more about the steps involved in designing and building a custom home, please refer to our building time frame page.

Are you able to guide me on creating the best possible home design for my block?

Certainly. We have an in-house team of skilled design professionals who are able to take your initial ideas and concepts and transform them into the ultimate dream home, regardless of the size or type of block you intend to build on, including sloping block and more.

Do you stay in touch with clients throughout the entire build process?

Of course. We understand that each of our clients remember their customer service experience just as vividly as they recall the home design itself. Client liaison is an integral part of our build process and we ensure that you are notified of the progress of the construction of your wonderful new home at regular intervals. If ever you have a question regarding your home build, we’re only ever a phone call away.

Does home demolition require special council permission?

Yes. It can take up to two weeks or more to obtain the necessary demolition licence and permission, so it’s always wise to secure this as soon as possible.
