If you own a large block of residentially zoned land in Sydney or more than 460m2 in the Woollahra Council area of Sydney comprising the suburbs of Rushcutters Bay, Edgecliff, Darling Point, Double Bay, Woollahra, Bellevue Hill, Point Piper, Rose Bay, Vaucluse and Watsons Bay, consider building a duplex residence to increase the capital value of your property.

Building a dual occupancy is a great way to downsize, stay in the area you like, get the brand new property you want and keep family nearby. If you own a large parcel of land, by building a duplex or dual occupancy, this can unlock equity in your property to assist with the funding of your building project.

Building a duplex or dual occupancy would suit many types of owners including downsizers, empty nester, families and couples. It would also suit cashed up retirees who no longer require their larger houses and want to live in a smaller brand new home with the option of retaining or selling the second home.

Building a duplex or dual occupancy could be placed into your super fund as a solid bricks and mortar investment. Also, your young adult children or your elderly parents could live in the adjoining duplex or dual occupancy, thus keeping the family together. Alternatively, the second residence could be rented out initially until your children or parents are ready to move in.

There is greater acceptance of living on smaller blocks of land and this can help downsizers and empty nesters to live in their homes in the area they like for longer.

Funding of duplexes or dual occupancies can be achieved in various ways including pre selling the second house where the builder can enter into separate building contracts with each owner, using equity in the existing property, the value of which will increase once you have your DA, or doing land house swops with a builder where you swop half of the land for a built house. Furthermore, by developing the property yourself, you benefit from an “at cost” building rather than buying a new home from a developer at a premium.
