Dual Occupancy: The Wise Solution to Maximising Land Value
Whether you’ve got a large backyard or are looking to knock down and rebuild your home, dividing up the land and building two properties on the same piece of land or constructing a duplex is a smart move. With land prices throughout Australia at an all-time high, dual occupancy will be financially rewarding.
Consider these approaches to dual occupancy building.
When considering dual occupancy of your Newcastle, Maitland, Port Stephens or Central Coast block of land, you can approach it in one of two ways.
Dividing the block of land and constructing a duplex on it.
Building another standalone house in the backyard space, adjacent to your pre-existing house.
Sloane was such a gentle guiding force that took us through the process. He is just such a good person. He is honest, he is reliable, he is always contactable, he makes time nearly ever day to meet with you for any discussion you feel you need to have, he returns phone calls, he is a most capable organiser. If he says the plasterers will be here on Tuesday, the electrician Thursday and the plumber Friday week, guess what? It happens! He works with you to ensure that you get the house that you wanted (we would like a nib wall instead of a full height wall – no problem etc.
And the build itself? Sloane’s motto is “Come Home to Quality”, and Sloane has delivered on that motto.
When we started the build many people said “Good luck with that”. Simply, if Sloane Porth is your builder you won’t need “Good Luck”. Instead you will get a quality house from a very capable builder and project manager. And from an honest, decent, obliging, quality person.
What a great well built home I have just purchased, after inspecting several exhibition homes with no suitable result my daughter found our Sloane home and insisted I view, reluctantly I succumbed and was immediately impressed with the quality of the build, the design is excellent with sensible features you don’t get with others. Sloane and his team have been great to deal with. I can recommend them to you.
We decided to build with Sloane Homes after meeting with Sloane. We found Sloane Homes on line and didn’t know Sloane before building.
At our first meeting we found Sloane to be friendly, open and flexible with our ideas.
We had discussions with the main project builders, but went ahead with Sloane.
Very glad we did. Our house was completed in 6 months and to a very high standard of workmanship.
Sloane was on site every working day, either working or supervising the work of the trades.
We made a number of small changes along the way and Sloane was always patiently ready to accommodate us.
We are really happy with the build.
Highly recommend including Sloane Homes in your quotes.
