Why knock down rebuild instead of renovating

Are you thinking about upgrading from your home, but don’t wish to leave the neighbourhood you love? Perhaps you’ve considered the option of substantially renovating your current home and wondered if it would be easier to knock down and rebuild. In the following blog, we’ll explain the benefits of knock down rebuilds vs renovations to help you start the journey to the new home of your dreams.

Save money with a new build

When renovating an existing home, you’re mostly restricted to the floorplan and slab size of the house, making it difficult and costly to change the layout. A knock down rebuild project can be more cost effective than substantially renovating an old home or working with an architect directly. Plus, a new home build will save you money on stamp duty vs purchasing a new existing home!

Innovatively designed homes

With most older homes having an outdated floorplan, your best bet is to start afresh with a knock down rebuild. This will allow you to have that free-flowing open plan design you see in most newer homes. Better yet, Coral Homes’ innovative plans have been created by our designers to perfectly suit the needs of most block sizes and modern family requirements.
