10 Aug WHY BUILDING A DUPLEX OR DUAL OCCUPANCY IN THE EASTERN SUBURBS, LOWER NORTH SHORE AND INNER WEST OF SYDNEY MAKES SENSE.
In many Council areas such as Woollahra and Waverley, planning rule changes have made it easier to develop Duplexes or Dual Occupancies. In a growing city like Sydney, this form of living makes a lot of sense because it is a low density option.
Landowners with blocks larger than 450m2 in Waverley Council or 460m2 in Woollahra Council can design and build Duplexes on their land, increasing density, but with clever design, creating more dwellings whilst still maintaining the character of the suburb.
Each Council area has differing planning rules relating to Duplexes, so you have to carry out your research before committing to a Duplex project. Domus Homes can assist you in this regard.
Advantages of Building a Duplex.
- Duplex projects provide the opportunity to create additional wealth.
- Duplexes can double the density of a block of land, but it can more than double the land value by adding another home on it.
- Downsize into a brand new home and rent the second home out.
- Add value to your land by maximising the land’s potential.
- Live in one home and sell off the second one to offset your mortgage.
- Two families could get together to share the burden of the land price and live in each duplex house after completion.
- Separately titled homes.
- Great for down sizers or empty nesters to enable you to remain in your area, but in a smaller new home. Add a lift to avoid stairs, or build the main bedroom on the ground floor level.
- No Strata Levies.
- Low maintenance, generous sized homes on smaller blocks of land.
- Keep the extended family together by living in both duplex homes, but separately, such as young families with elderly parents or families with older children.
- Benefit from Capital Gains Tax exemptions if you live in the home.
- Benefit from Negative Gearing and Depreciation Benefits if you rent the properties out.
- Create properties which are in high demand by the buying market.
- Benefit from economies of scale in relation to building costs and fitout goods.
