Build Your New Investment Property With Australia’s Leading Home Builder

For the Ultimate peace of mind, invest in a DualOcc by Metricon quality property

Realise The Potential of Your Property

You already know the benefits of building a brand new property for investment purposes. The generous depreciation write-downs, low maintenance requirements and high rental demand from having a new property makes it an attractive option for any property portfolio.

We take the benefits of building an investment property in metropolitan Melbourne one step further. Our DualOcc by Metricon specialist can help you fully realise the potential of your project build, rather than just selling you a duplex. We go to great lengths in using our expertise to ensure you get the best value possible.

Build With Experience

Metricon have been successfully building new homes since 1976. That’s 40 years of experience, 10 of which have been specifically focused on investment property builds through our dedicated DualOcc by Metricon solutions team.

Investment properties need to be a quality build. So whilst our DualOcc by Metricon properties are still the very highest quality in design & construction (carrying a lifetime structural guarantee#), we understand that your intended outcome is about getting the best value build you can for your project.
