‘Starting from new’ is so simple with Metricon

We had heard of Metricon, but had never built a home before, and so didn’t know what to expect from a project home builder. We certainly didn’t know they could build as impressive a home as the Sentosa. Metricon’s expertise and willingness to work with us gave us huge confidence that we could achieve our building dreams.

Knock Down Rebuild Melbourne

What is the knock down rebuild process in Melbourne?

As Australia’s leading builder, Metricon Homes has a range of options for everyone, including first-home buyers, upgraders, downsizers, and investors. These include home and land packages, [DB1] dual occupancy properties, and Country Living. If you love your address but not your house, a KnockDown ReBuild Melbourne home could be the perfect hassle-free solution for you. When you build a brand new home, we’ll work with you every step of the way to help you find the perfect dream home for you and your family. Our process includes:

  • Choose your home design. All our home designs are yours to choose from, subject to suitability for your site.
  • Council approvals. We’ll take a look at your block and speak with you about your property goals. Then we’ll start the process with your local council.
  • Site assessment. While talking to the council, we’ll take a closer look at your site, survey your block of land and take soil samples.
  • Preliminary contracts. This is where we give you an idea of the costs.
  • Fixtures and features. You’ll get to visit our Studio M Selection Centre in Melbourne or Geelong to make some important design decisions.
  • Final contract. When you’re ready to go and we have council planning approval.
  • Building permit. We’ll work with your local council.
  • Demolition and construction. We can recommend a demolition contractor, and we’ll build your home. You’ll be updated throughout the process.

How much does it cost to knock down a house and rebuild in Melbourne?

When it comes to costs, every block of land and house is different. And no two KnockDown ReBuilds are the same. As knock down rebuild specialists in Melbourne, we understand there are a lot of cost variables to consider when building. And we’ll let you know at the preliminary contract stage what those costs are likely to be. Start by understanding the costs and finance options of building a new home, and get help from our resources such as:

  • Mortgage calculators
  • Saving tips

It’s always worthwhile for peace of mind to discuss your property and financial goals with your financial advisor and to understand how a KnockDown ReBuild in Melbourne can help you achieve them.

One of the great things about working so closely with Metricon when you build your dream home is that you'll know what you get for the money you pay. When you click on any of our home designs, such as the La Pyrenee, you’ll discover information about:

  • Façade. Some designs include multiple façade options.
  • Key features. Learn more about the standout features of the home.
  • Floor plans. Understand the different ones available with that design.
  • Inclusions. Find out what’s included, such as appliances, flooring, heating and cooling, and fittings.

Having that information ready to go from the start lets you understand the value associated with the costs.
