Dual Occupancy

Dual Occupancy

Looking to get your foot into the property market?

A Dual occupancy house can help you achieve that goal sooner. These designs feature two residential homes within the one house. Unlike a duplex dwelling these houses are not able to be subdivided and therefore come with the benefit of a reduction in building and council costs compared to duplex's. 

Although there is only one building title, our dual occupancy houses have separate utility meters and only one set of council ratesDual occupancy houses appeal to investors and first home buyers as a great value investment to live in one and rent the other, rent both or even sell for a great return.

Advantages

2 Dwellings + 2 Keys + 2 incomes = For the price of 1

Higher Rental Returns - Two separate dwellings allow for each to be rented out for full market rent. Returning twice the amount a traditional house would.

Lower Costs - No body corporate or strata fees that need to be paid and only one set of council rates.

Approved Firewall - Dual occupancy homes come with an approved fire wall protecting you and your family from fire, heat and fumes while also providing great acoustic insulation. The firewall will receive compliance certificate during the construction process. 

Larger Rental Market - Suitable for professionals and families who need a home office or require space for parents or elderly relatives.

Save $10,000 in stamp duty - When you buy a block of land and then build you only pay stamp duty on the land and not the total package. This can give an immediate saving of $10,000.

Disadvantages

Higher Cost to Build? - The cost of a dual occupancy house is slightly more than a traditional home as the dual occupancy house has a second kitchen, extra bathrooms and laundries. All of our dual key homes are also built with a council approved fire rated wall that runs the entire length of the house to provide a safe and secure living environment.

Restrict resale Market? - The demand for dual occupancy's homes is currently very high as the supply is limited due to the appeal to families, first home buyers and investors.
