Duplex Developments in Perth

If the existing home on your property is not worth keeping, you could demolish it and build duplex homes. Duplex development can be a relatively simple style of development, making it popular with new developers.

Duplex Development - North Perth* One of the most sought after property investment solutions
* The simplest dual-occupancy project 
* A good way to dip your toe into the property development market.

Duplex development involves building two houses of similar size (single or two storey) on one subdivided block.

Depending on your block shape, duplex developments can take two forms:

1. Side by side
This allows for maximum street frontage for both properties              

2. Battle-axe
This involves building one dwelling behind the other

Zoning

Before embarking on a duplex development, the first step is to check the Residential Planning Codes (R-Codes) of the area, as they differ from council to council. As R-Code specialists, we can consult with local councils and planning consultants on your behalf to work out what’s possible on your site and whether it will be impacted by future zoning changes.

Here are the most common duplex development zonings and area calculations.

How to Profit

Having more than one property on the same block will generally increase equity. By subdividing your block and building two low maintenance dwellings, duplex designs open up an array of profitable options:

  • Rent both properties to receive double the income revenue from your block
  • Sell both homes and pocket the profits 
  • Move into one of the units and sell the other 
  • Move into one of the units and rent the other out for an additional revenue stream to pay off your mortgage faster.

Why Developments by Dale Alcock?

It’s a simple equation – the more units you build, the higher degree of complexity. For multi-unit designs in Perth there are additional factors to consider to satisfy local council policies as well as the R-Codes. Extra consideration must be given to power, sewerage and driveway drainage requirements, even solar orientation.

However, the more units you can construct, the more opportunity there is to see a strong return on investment. That’s what makes partnering with the experts at Developments by Dale Alcock so invaluable. As the multi-unit builder Perth trusts, we can provide a full feasibility study before moving ahead with the development project to give you full confidence your design will maximise profits.
