Benefits of a Gentrify Knockdown Rebuild Project

Before you take the huge and costly decision to sell your home and re-locate to a new area, it’s well worth considering the many benefits of a knockdown rebuild project:

  • You get to stay in your current location and don’t have to re-locate
  • Maintain your lifestyle and proximity to your friends, relatives and amenities
  • Avoid paying expensive moving costs such as real estate agent fees, stamp duty and legal fees, which can often add up to tens of thousands of dollars
  • Keep your children at your local schools and near their friends and relatives
  • Live in a brand new, energy efficient home that suits your lifestyle, budget and own unique taste
  • Increase the value of your property and create instant equity
  • You can release the equity manufactured during the rebuild process and re-invest in additional properties to expand your property portfolio and build your retirement nest egg. Gentrify specialise in various property investor products that can increase your net wealth. For further information, refer to our renovations and extensions, developments & subdivisions and duplexes & townhouses web pages.
  • Less stress and less risk than selling your existing home and purchasing another property in a new location.

Are you a landlord looking to maximise your wealth?

The potential benefits of knockdown rebuild projects are often underestimated or overlooked. Knockdown rebuild projects are a great way of maximising your wealth, regardless of the property value cycle. In fact, many of the most astute property investors purchase older properties in highly sought-after locations, demolish them and re-build new homes as a way of maximising their wealth.

The equity created during the knockdown rebuild process can be used to pay off your mortgage more quickly, secure a deposit on your next investment property or optimise cash flow if you decide to rent the property out. Whichever option you take, knockdown rebuild projects can assist greatly in increasing your net wealth.

Knockdown rebuild projects also turn your investment into a haven of tax efficiency – everything that is disposed of during demolition is immediately depreciable, whilst the new property, as well as fixtures and fittings installed during the rebuild process can be

depreciated over a period of time and offset against your taxable income. This generally leads to the tax man putting money back in your pocket at the end of the financial year.

As knockdown rebuild Melbourne & Geelong specialists, we do everything we can to maximise your financial returns, which is why we employ only the best project managers, architects, draftspeople, estimators and tradespeople who know how to extract the most value out of your budget. Our knockdown rebuild specialists have also partnered with several highly experienced property agents who assist us in undertaking the necessary research before each project commences to ensure that we don’t overcapitalise your investment. Once we have constructed your new investment property, we engage one of our expert property accounting partners who work with you to ensure that your tax returns are optimised whilst complying with all tax laws and regulations.

ge-ico-2 Free Consultation

Gentrify’s specialist knockdown rebuild experts will visit your home and take the time to listen carefully to your requirements and objectives. During the visit, we will provide you with some initial concept ideas and give you a rough cost estimate for the project. We will also provide you with an overview of our construction process and answer any questions you may have.

 ge-ico-3 Concept Design

Following your authority to proceed, our design team will gather the required information, measure your property and create an initial concept design with basic specification and cost estimates.

 ge-ico-4Detail Design

Once you are happy with the concept design and instruct us to proceed, we move into the detailed design phase where our Designers, Engineer and Estimator fully design, scope and estimate the project. Following this, we will then confirm the final fixed price for the project.


We take care of the Building Permit applications and Town Planning permits (if required) and once approved, we both enter into a Building Contract. Then comes the exciting part – our construction team commence on site and commence the transformation! Our highly skilled Project Manager and tradespeople will make every effort to make your construction experience as memorable and stress-free as possible. Care will be taken to minimise any disruption to your neighbours and the community, especially during the demolition phase in terms of noise, dust and debris abatement. We keep our building sites clean, safe and tidy at all times and are passionate about minimising our environmental impact and working in an ethical manner.
