Knock Down & Rebuild in Southland

Need a house upgrade?

The problem seems to be the same everywhere; houses are selling so quickly around the Southland region it is near impossible for potential homebuyers to secure somewhere new to live. And especially with next to no vacant sections to build on.

Many homeowners are now forced to stay in homes they don’t really want because they have nowhere else to move…

Because of the land scarcity, Korena McDermott from Stroud Homes: Southland Home Builder is predicting knock down rebuilds to become a more popular option.

“Knocking down your existing home to build a brand new Stroud home on your existing land is more cost-effective and simpler than you think,” says Korena.

Let us look at some of the benefits in this blog post.

Why not just renovate instead?

It’s  a common question: “why not just renovate your old house if you’re going to stay on the section?”

You should know that renovations usually take months to complete and can easily blow out the budget.

It’s often not until a renovation is complete that the owner will realise that, for not a lot more, they could have started from scratch and ended up with a brand new house.

Building new from a knockdown gives you a blank canvas to work with where no one has lived before.
