Traditionally subdividing a larger block means having one residence at the front and one at the rear. However, a block needn't be as wide as you might think to build a side-by-side option to offer better value to the end buyer.
A front and rear duplex development will likely need to accomodate access for both homes with a side driveway, or though utilising a rear lane or ROW for the rear home. The side by side option provides street frontage to both homes as per a standard block and build.

It’s often more financially beneficial than buying elsewhere and less complicated than a costly renovation which still leaves you with an old house. Your new Broadway home will feature the latest design and trends for your lifestyle, plus you can maximize the use of your block and increase the overall value
Perth has experienced significant increases in land prices over the last decade, and as a result, many older properties now have impressive land value. Now more than ever, homeowners are choosing to demolish their existing dwelling and build a new home. This will enable you to preserve the equity in your land, and avoid paying stamp duty and other associated selling fees.
Standard demolition is approximately $22,000. When comparing quotes, make sure you assess the details carefully to confirm the service inclusions are thorough. Items that could be included in the quote include vegetation and roots, swimming pools, removal of asbestos, sheds and other additional buildings, septic tanks, soak wells and council crossovers. For peace of mind, Broadway Homes can also review your quotes with you.
At approximately $22,000, a standard demolish and build, can actually be a more affordable option than buying another block. You save on paying a host of fees like stamp duty, taxes and site fees, and forego the expense and hassle of selling your existing home (agent fees, advertising, repairs etc).
