Your Dream Home or Dream Investment
Essentially, building duplexes means that you’re building two separate homes on the same blocks. This can be one way to get the highest rental yield and highest growth from your investment. The dwellings generally have their own entrances, being a combination of a detached house and an apartment, and owners have the choice of how to use each space to their ultimate benefit. For example, building a duplex can allow investors to live in one and make an income from the other, or rent out both for a maximised profit.

YourDuplex HomesQuestions Answered
What is a duplex?
Duplexes are home designs that create two dwelling spaces on one block of land. Each house is connected with a common wall during the building process, yet their design allows for dual occupancy, along with the options of being double or single-storey.
The duplex can have the same or separate titles, and can include space for landscaping, a backyard and even a swimming pool. The cost of building a duplex is comparable to building a regular house of the same size, yet it often allows for higher return and cost recuperation. Duplexes allow for the comfort, cost convenience and security of an apartment, without compromising on open space or your own private land.
What are the most common reasons for choosing to build a duplex in Sydney?
Ultimately, duplex designs are popular because they are often available at more affordable prices than a single-storey home, however, they offer more space and autonomy than an apartment. Many people choose to build duplexes based on the ability to offset the costs of owning a home by renting out the second house.
Duplexes can potentially bring in the highest rental yield and cost offset by creating double the house on one block of land. This can suit many different types of home builders, from first home owners to investors.
