Cost and Advantages of a First Floor Addition to Your Home in Sydney

Advantages of First Floor Additions & Renovations to a semi house, terrace house or top floor apartment in Sydney.

Building a first floor addition and renovating a semi house, terrace house or top floor apartment in Sydney is a great way to create a medium sized, low maintenance house in a cost effective way and has multiple advantages, namely:

1. Add value to your existing semi house, terrace or top floor apartment and avoid capital gains tax when you eventually sell your primary residence

2. Lower entry level property purchase price than a freestanding house.

3. Lower building and renovation costs than for a freestanding house.

4. Achieve house size accommodation on smaller blocks of land.

5. Purchase in great suburbs close to the city with great public transport (again at less cost than a house).

6. Stay in the suburb of your choice if you already own your property.

7. Select lower entry priced properties than a house close to all of the exciting lifestyle and entertainment options of the   inner city.

8. Easier, cheaper and much quicker to get approval from Council than for larger projects (subject to Council’s planning guidelines).

9. Smaller properties, thus requiring less garden and building maintenance.

10. Easy and quick to build for experienced design and building professionals (such as Domus Homes).

11. High demand from purchasers for the end product.

12. With professional guidance, strong capital gains can be achieved.

13. Many opportunities still exist to add first floor additions and to renovate older terrace houses, semi houses or top floor apartments to suit your personal tastes and accommodation requirements in exciting areas of Sydney.

14. Great alternative for couples, downsizers or empty nesters where the main bedroom can be designed at ground floor level with additional accommodation for grand kids, guests, sewing, study and movie room which can be built at first floor level.
