It’s official: Australians are loving the opportunity to rebuild in 2021! According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the country is spending billions on home renovations and construction, up 30% from previous years. It marks a veritable boom in the industry with many taking part in the opportunity to construct a new vision and a better future for themselves and their family.
There’s no doubt renovating your home can add new life to an older exterior, but what about diving in for a full knock-down rebuild? It might be a decision with even more benefits than you think.
Knocking down your present home and deciding to work with a custom home builder again on the same site, brings innumerable benefits. First of all, if you love where you live, you get to stay there. Your valuable friend’s network stays intact, you can continue to frequent the local businesses and amenities you’ve grown to love, your address stays the same (no need to update!), and the kids stay in the same schools, adding stability. A knockdown rebuild can also turn out to be much more cost-effective than renovating your old home and allows you to start fresh with a beautiful new blank slate. It’s truly a transformational and remarkable journey.
