Will building a duplex take longer than a standalone home?

Building a duplex is certainly a clever way to maximise investment opportunity from your block, whether you are building a duplex to live left, rent right or sell or lease them both, it can provide better bang for your buck than building a standalone home.

Duplex home designs are no longer simple side-by-side designs that only fit wide obliging blocks. Instead, duplex home designs from Eagle Homes represent a range of options including corner blocks as well as designs where the homes sit one in front of the other.

To build a duplex, there are certain zoning requirements and restrictions that need to be adhered to, such as minimum area and land width open space requirements, setback measurements etc. that will be publicly available for you to review before buying a block and planning your duplex design.

The rules vary from council to council and you should check what is permissible in your area before going any further. Eagle Homes, expert in building duplex homes in Sydney, is here to help answer your questions around block suitability for a duplex with our wide range of duplex designs.

Once you have settled on a design for your duplex, the actual build and construction time is no longer than that of a standalone home, given all the council requirements and regulations are met.

New modern duplex designs from Eagle Homes are challenging what you might think a duplex looks like. Take a look at the wide range of new duplex home designs from Sydney duplex home building experts Eagle Homes.

Will council amalgamation affect my Development Application?

In the most comprehensive local government reform in 100 years, NSW saw the amalgamation of several councils on 12 May 2016. 40 local councils disappeared overnight to be replaced by 19 new super councils. Whilst most councillors and senior staff have been dismissed in the councils that have been abolished under the new council amalgamations, the general staff remain in place and therefore so do the fundamental services previously offered.

NSW Government has assured residents that the new councils will continue to provide services such as community development programs, assessing development applications, collecting rubbish and recycling and processing rates, fees and other charges.

Why building a duplex is a sound investment strategy versus buying an apartment

People looking at duplex alternatives are often comparing them to apartments, but this can be the same as comparing apples to oranges. There is a wide range of benefits in building a duplex versus buying an apartment, whether it be existing or off the plan.

A dual-occupancy duplex development is a good way to get started in the property development market. By building a duplex, you have the potential to rent the properties out, sell both homes or use one as an income-earning property while living in the other.

The central benefit of a duplex is that it has more land component size and value than an apartment. Historically properties with a higher land component value appreciate faster.

According to RealEstate.com.au, aside from it being a sounds property investment strategy, there are also many physical comforts duplex homes can offer that apartments cannot.

Why you need a builder you can trust

The process of building a home can be a complex one for first home builders or even those who have built before. Planning, design, engineer drawings, setbacks, ratios etc. - it’s all part of the process before construction has even started.

While there are many steps, it doesn’t have to take over your life and overwhelm you along the way. Eagle Homes works with all our home builders at every step of the process, helping and guiding through any complicated matters from small or narrow blocks, floor plans, council approvals, and even granny flat additions or duplex rebuilds.

The demand in the market - especially in Sydney - over the last 12–18 months has seen a slew of new builders pop up in the market with very little experience in building quality family homes.

With the market reporting that demand is slowing down, there is a real concern that these same new-to-the-market builders won’t be around in another 12-18 months’ time to honour any warranties or defects on homes they have built. Eagle Homes has been a Sydney home builder for over 30 years. In fact, just last year we celebrated this milestone by releasing the Eagle 30, a 4 bedroom family home that could be built for less than $100,000.

Eagle Homes is proudly there every step of the way for our customers. We are also available for customers who have completed the initial construction process long after warranties have expired, as one Eagle Homes customer reported on productreview.com.au recently.

I built with Eagle Homes about 2 years ago. I called them a couple of months ago regarding my door leaking in the heavy rain, they came out within a week which I was very surprised. They explained to me that it's not covered under the warranty but as a goodwill they will replace it for me. We were very happy with the prompted service that Eagle Homes provided. Again thanks Eagle Homes for the outstanding workmanship,” - 5 November 2015.

When choosing a builder for your new home, you can’t afford to get it wrong. You are entrusting them with what will likely be your most expensive outlay, so you need to choose a builder you can trust and who you know will be around long into the future.

The everyday connectedness of intergenerational living

Intergenerational living is dramatically increasing in popularity as Australia’s rising living pressures, mortgage stress and busy lifestyles call for a different approach to the way we use our spaces. And there’s no reason this can’t be a sustainable and comfortable way to organise a family’s living arrangements when you consider how effective modern home designs can be. Granny flats are a prime example of a home design that can provide added space, privacy, and independence to help facilitate a more family-based lifestyle.

By sharing our lives, our homes, and our resources, an intergenerational home can maximise incomes, schedules and land space in order to offer your entire family a better quality of life. Grandparents can be a bigger part of their grandchildren’s lives, easing the burden of work and child care pressures. Young adults can start their own lives and still remain in the family home without sacrificing their privacy or independence. Whatever your family’s situation, intergenerational living makes sense when you consider how hard it is to maintain a home and lifestyle in this modern economy.

Eagle Homes recognises the importance of intergenerational living. We have specifically designed a range of homes, including the Crane and the Corella, that feature an attached yet completely independent granny flat as part of the family home. This kind of connected living can bring the closeness we feel over the holidays to everyday life, not to mention more time with those we love and a more practical use of incomes.

Eagle Homes provides affordable home alternatives to suit the housing needs of today. We take care in our designs so that space is always maximised and privacy is secured. Building an Eagle Home with an incorporated granny flat can encourage a change of lifestyle for your whole family.

Call us here at Eagle Homes today to see how we can secure your new lifestyle.
