Before we take a walk through some of the DualOcc by Metricon
designs, let’s briefly look at why you might consider building a Dual
Reasons to consider building a Dual Occupancy home
There are a number of reasons to consider a DualOcc development:
1. To maximise land you already own
If you have an existing home in an area you love, but your living
situation is changing, you may consider DualOcc by Metricon for your Knock Down Rebuild.
Whether it’s accommodating extra family members, or downsizing, DualOcc
provides you with choices. You might choose to live in one of the homes
and sell off the second to pay down your mortgage, or invest elsewhere.
Or you might choose to build a second home to keep family members
2. To look out for your parents
Retirement homes are in short supply around the country, and can also
be extremely costly, so we’re seeing a rise in the numbers of elderly
moving in with their adult children. A dual occupancy home gives
everyone the space and peace of mind required at this often-emotional
time. Elderly parents have their independence and comfort but with the
safety and knowledge that their family is right next to them.
3. To accommodate adult children
At the other end of the spectrum is the growing trend for young
adults to stay at home with their parents for longer than ever before. A
dual occupancy home offers a great option for space and privacy – for
all of you! It’s a great way to give older children a much-needed leg up
into the property market and help them achieve their much-craved
independence while still keeping them close by. As your children grow
and start their own families, grandparent support can also be a key
driver in choosing a DualOcc solution.
4. To generate revenue
DualOcc developments offer a real opportunity for profit by making
more income from a single land title. Whether you choose to knock down
your existing home then rebuild and sell off one (or more) of the
dwellings, or whether you buy land specifically to develop on, a DualOcc
development offers excellent potential to generate income.
