Montgomery Homes — The Knock Down Rebuild Specialists

If your current home no longer suits your lifestyle or it’s starting to look a little dated, you might be considering whether to renovate your house or knock down and rebuild your dream home.

Undergoing a major renovation not only induces additional stress and pressure, but can also be a costly exercise with many variables and unknown factors. On average, a major renovation can cost more than double per square metre and can often turn into a much bigger job than expected.

Montgomery Homes are the Knock Down Rebuild Specialists across Sydney, the Central Coast, Newcastle and the Hunter Valley — navigate between these locations below.

The Knock Down Rebuild Benefits

There are many benefits to a knock down rebuild, but you might be wondering how this option compares to moving house or even undergoing a major renovation. Here are just some of the many reasons why a knock down rebuild could be for you:

  • Stay in your current location where you and your family have created many memories
  • No need to worry about new neighbours - you can keep your current ones!
  • Keep your kids at the same school with their friends
  • Save money per square metre compared to a renovation
  • No real estate or stamp duty fees
  • Go green and create a more eco-friendly home by maximising solar and insulation
  • Increase the value of your asset and your land

Knock Down Rebuild Costs

A common concern when renovating is the unknown costs that may arise throughout the project. Quite often, renovations end up costing twice as much as what was first anticipated as new problems are uncovered when the project begins.

If you choose to knock down and rebuild with an experienced builder like Montgomery Homes, we'll conduct an in-depth site analysis, prior to any down payments, to determine the costs to knock down and rebuild a brand new home.

On average, a Knock Down Rebuild costs two to three times less than a major renovation. And the benefit of knocking down and starting again is you get to customise everything you've always wanted, from better insultation, a bigger kitchen, to that extra bathroom.
