Dual Occupancy: The Wise Solution to Maximising Land Value

Dual occupancy is a wise solution to maximising the value of a larger piece of land.

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.


Dual occupancy allows for flexibility & freedom


You can keep the additional property for visiting family or friends or earn additional income by selling or leasing the other property.
