    Knock Down and Rebuild Your Home in Sydney

    Sydney has a rich history in housing and architecture. Back in 1788, as residential Sydney was marked by the arrival of the first fleet of British ships, there was still plenty of land available to build a house; anywhere you like. Unfortunately, this is not the case today.

    Good land being harder to find has resulted in Sydneysiders becoming more creative to end up with their dream home in the perfect location. Knockdown rebuilds make this possible, giving more options and freedom to buyers, with the ability to knock down an older, outdated or poorly built home before building a custom property from scratch on their perfect piece of land.

    Knockdown rebuilds are becoming even more popular than renovations, allowing buyers to get the best of both worlds with a home and property they love, with less hassle and often a lower cost.

      Things To Consider with Knock Down Rebuilds in Sydney

      Sydneys regulations related to knock down rebuilds

      While there are some restrictions in NSW regarding knock-down rebuilds, they tend to be minimal and vary on location and project. Every council and district are different; however, due to the lack of land available and a desire to encourage low-density rejuvenation, councils are warming up more and more to the idea of rebuilding houses.

      The average council approval time in Sydney is 8-12 weeks, so tackling the red tape is a great place to start your knock down rebuild. If you need help – our team knows the ins and outs to get your build started quicker.

      Population, culture & recreation in Sydney

      The estimated number of people who live in Sydney is 5.231 million (June 2021), which is expected to grow to 6.1 million by 2041, according to the NSW government.

      The flow-on effect is that Sydney’s already dynamic and multicultural attractions will continue to expand, making it an excellent place for locals and migrants alike. Furthermore, this demonstrates that demand for land and housing doesn’t look like it will slow down dramatically soon, making knockdown rebuilds a very attractive choice for families and investors alike.

      With this population boom, taking advantage of opportunity and excitement close to the city where culture & recreation abounds will get harder and harder. While blocks of land will become available further out from the city, getting close to the action leaves you only with one option - to knock down an existing house and rebuild it.

      While the cost of buying a home and the economics of construction continue to rise, completing a knockdown rebuild remains a steady investment, getting a higher yield from your modern, custom home to secure a confident place in Sydney’s housing market.

      How climate & geography affects your rebuild

      Sydney’s general climate will have minimal impact on your knock down rebuild. New South Home’s builders work all year round; if it is safe, our team will continue to work on your build, rain or shine.

      The areas in and around Sydney consist of many low rolling hills and wide valleys. If your block is unique – steep, sloped or curved – a custom home build allows you to create a home that is perfectly suited to make the most of your land.

      The quickest way to discover (and conquer) your suburb's geographic challenges is to get in touch with one of our consultants. We have built across Sydney, the Central Coast and Illawarra for almost four decades and would be happy to answer any questions.
