The choice to purchase an old antique property in a nice location and build over the top of it or simply raze your current house to the ground and start over, largely depends on the costs involved. For those who opt to stay where they are and build a whole new house, rather than give their current one a makeover, there are a number of benefits.
Firstly, you’ll have the luxury of being able to enjoy the same great location you’ve grown attached to over the time that you’ve lived there. Secondly, if you have school aged children, it won’t be necessary for them to relocate to a different school, which is often hard on children who have forged long lasting friendships. Thirdly, homeowners often have long-established friendships of their own with their neighbours and being able to remain in the same neighbourhood ensures that these friendships can continue.
For homeowners who instead choose to knock down and rebuild on a block of land that they’ve purchased in a completely different area, they too will be treated to a host of unique advantages, none more so than the fact that they’ll be able to relish the delights of living amongst brand new surroundings. For some, change can be daunting, but for others, change is exhilarating. No matter whether you choose to stay and rebuild or move elsewhere and build there, with Unique Homes, you are assured of a stunning new luxury Gold Coast home that you’ll appreciate for years to come.
Unique Homes have been designing and constructing innovative custom home designs throughout the Gold Coast and entire South East Queensland region since the late 1970’s and since then we’ve developed a robust network of industry contacts, including home demolition. Throughout our years of operation, we’ve constantly sought to refine and evolve our building methods and this has led to a streamlined building process that ensures a smooth transition between all aspects of each project, including demolition, where applicable.
With a long history in the design and construction of five star designer homes for our clients, we combine award winning talent with premium quality building techniques and materials to create remarkable home designs that are delivered in a timely manner.
There’s a number of factors that determine the cost of having an existing house demolished, including the size of the house and the overall complexity of the task. From experience, we find that the figure is typically in the vicinity of 15 to 20 thousand dollars. This is substantially cheaper than the cost of buying a whole new block of land and paying all of the associated fees and charges, along with all the other additional expenses attached to putting your existing home on the market, including advertising, real estate agent fees, inspections to ensure the home is fit for sale among other things.
At Gold Coast Unique Homes, our wealth of experience and broad knowledge of knock down rebuilds enables us to provide you with an accurate price estimate for having your current property demolished, cleared and readied to be rebuilt on.

We work with an industry leading demolition contractor who ensures that the excess time required to remove the existing home is kept to an absolute minimum. The demolition process is smoothly integrated into the overall build process, guaranteeing that there is no significant impact on total build times.
The demolition contractor will be able to supply you all the info you need concerning the demolition of your current premise. You have complete control over what elements are remove or retained.
From experience, most homes require around 4 – 6 weeks to be razed, cleared and made suitable to built upon.
Like everything in life, it’s always best to plan ahead. Have your temporary accommodation arranged will in advance of the date you’re set to exit your current residence. Not doing so may result in you paying far more than you needed to.
While we do provide a number of guarantees for each home that we build, including fixed price contracts and a 25 year structural guarantee, we cannot guarantee the precise date that your new home will be completed by. Generally, new homes require around 20 to 38 weeks to build, but as most of our homes tend to be of a larger size, 32 to 38 weeks is more likely.
