Dual Occupancy

Building two homes on your land is a smart investment. Particularly when you consider the ever increasing land values across Melbourne. These dual-occupancy building projects make financial, long-term investment strategies viable. They also keep your financial options open by doing the following:

  • Selling one or both homes to make a profit
  • Leasing both properties
  • Positively gearing one of the properties
  • Selling the land with approved plans and permits, at a profit 

Dual Occupancy

So where do you start?

 The very first phase of a dual-occupancy building project is finding, then buying the right property. In order to buy the right property, it takes experienced professionals who know exactly what to look for to ensure the project is feasible. The main steps of a project include:

  • Planning a project that suits your financial 
  • Assess the possible risks 
  • Buying a the right property 
  • Planning / drawings
  • Entering submissions for council approval
  • Preparing the property for dual occupancy
  • Selecting a builder that can deliver a profitable project
  • Financing the project

Following the above process independently can prove to be very difficult, as each critical step can be subject to major time delays, reducing your total profits. There could even be a chance of not delivering a project at all and being a major financial burden. Example Project: Two Lot Subdivision

    Mark was personally recommended to me as someone who could be of real help in appraising my property of interest and subsequently representing me at auction.
    He made time to meet for an initial chat over coffee. I was immediately impressed and relaxed with his easy and honest nature, as well as his willingness to listen to my needs.
    A genuinely nice bloke... well experienced in the RE scene, totally committed to helping his clients.... all in all, a very worthwhile experience.
