Take Your Rebuild to a Whole New Realm in 2023

February 2023 In General News

Rebuilding in Melbourne is made easy with Dennis Familly Homes and our Knockdown Rebuild service. Maximise your block with your dream home without having to leave the neighbourhood you adore.

Why should you rebuild?

If your family home is no longer meeting your needs, whether stylistically or practically, you may look to renovate or move. But there is another option. Rebuilding your home, on your existing block, can be an ideal solution with benefits you may not expect.

When your home no longer fits your lifestyle and you’re thinking about moving, many home buyers find themselves priced out of good neighbourhoods and end up turning to the next best option – adjoining suburbs. During the second quarter of 2022, suburbs with higher median values tended to fall faster than their less expensive neighbours. In some cases, the value of these neighbouring areas continued to grow.

If your location provides access to public transportation, public school zones, and amenities – all factors strongly favoured by home buyers, plus if you love the appearance of your surrounding streets and homes and the availability of green spaces, why move? Remember, location is one of the most important factors behind a good property price, and now is a great time to capitalise on those qualities.


The best growth suburbs for rebuilding in Melbourne

According to Property Update, south east Melbourne has always had a strong history of property price growth.

New developments, including schools, hospitals, transport routes, and commercial infrastructure can boost a neighbourhood’s value over time.

Invest in your neighbourhood and benefit from south east Melbourne’s existing and growing infrastructure. As many new citizens continue to enter Australia and initially rent homes, most have a plan to buy, resulting in an increased demand for property in Melbourne’s south east. Brick and mortar homes continue to be the best investment in residential property, with values doubling within the previous decade. Growing areas include Frankston; which saw a 6% population growth according to 2016 Census data and Narre Warren; home to Fountain Gate, Melbourne’s second largest shopping centre .

With Melbourne suburbs, such as Bentleigh, Glen Waverley, and Box Hill, benefiting from established commercial infrastructure and generous block proportions, many historic homes no longer suit the modern lifestyles of many Melbournian families. Upgrade your family home to an efficient, open floor plan complete with modern fittings and features — while keeping your prime location.

Keep your prime location, let go of the stress of managing trades, organising materials, and conversing with Council when you choose the route of Knockdown Rebuild with Dennis Family Homes — we take care of town planning and reporting, contracts, and building permits. Plus, you avoid all agent selling fees and government stamp duty costs.

Spend your energy looking after more important things, including selecting your perfect home design.
