It’s a common story. You love your community; the schools are great, the local cafe is your daily refuge, and the commute to work is a breeze. Yet, one thing is not quite right – your aging home no longer suits your lifestyle. Chances are you’ve outgrown it, or it’s looking a little worse for wear and you’d prefer to live in a home where everything is new and designed just for you.
It's clear that something needs to change, but moving away may seem out of the question.
Instead of changing your postcode, you could move nearby, renovate, or change your current house for a new one in the street you love.
Before you take the plunge, it’s important to weigh up the costs and benefits. With that in mind, here are some reasons why a knock down rebuild could be your perfect solution.
Avoid house hunting stress
House hunting can be a gruelling process. Finding a house that checks all your boxes and is in your ideal location is no easy task. Land in your suburb may also be hard to come by and be expensive.
With a knock down rebuild, you already have the perfect location; all you need to do is create the perfect home.

Avoid nasty renovation surprises
Renovating can be an exciting proposition, but it often uncovers costly surprises like rotting wood, termites, outdated wiring, or asbestos. These unforeseen problems can blow your budget and timeline out of proportion.
Surprisingly, a knock down rebuild can be more cost-effective per square metre. For less than the cost of a renovation, Allcastle Homes could build you a brand-new home that suits your lifestyle perfectly and incorporates energy efficiencies that reduce your carbon footprint and help lower your energy bills.
Start fresh without saying goodbye to the things you love
Your home’s location, and proximity to schools, parks, shops, and other amenities can heavily influence its value to you and others. But the one thing you have no control over is your neighbours – good ones are like gold!
Opting for a knock down rebuild means you can enjoy a fresh start without saying goodbye to all the things you love about your area, including your friends.
Additionally, in the red-hot housing market your land value may continue to rise. Adding a brand-new home to the mix will increase the value of your property immediately and help maximize your profit potential.

Live in the home you always dreamed of
When you renovate, there are always compromises. You may want to add a second storey, but your existing structure cannot support it. You may need more family room, but the building codes around internal walls literally get in the way.
A knock down rebuild allows you to customize every aspect of your home, from the floorplan to the finishes. You're no longer bound by constraints of the existing architecture or the previous homeowner's choices. It’s your chance to create a home that's truly yours.
Imagine having a masterfully built home with all the space you need, bathed in natural light, with a customised family-centric floorplan, top-quality appliances, and luxurious finishes. Allcastle Homes offer a unique opportunity to craft your home as you want.

Make a better investment
Buying a new home can be costlier than expected, mainly because of land prices. When you consider the factors that influence the cost of a knock down rebuild, you already have the most critical part – the land. Stamp duty, rates, and council fees are also covered.
When you rebuild with Allcastle Homes, they carry out a site assessment to identify which designs will make the best use of your land. Is there potential for a granny flat or a duplex for additional rental income? Can you enlarge your floor plan and make more of your outdoor living spaces? Talking to an Allcastle Homes consultant can make the most of your existing block.
