PERTH'S MOST EXCITING REAL ESTATE OPPORTUNITY

Subdivision & Build

Divide And Conquer Your Property Goals

If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that Perth’s suburbs are evolving. And with an increase in demand for high-density living, savvy property owners are choosing to subdivide their lots.

Keen investors have moved on from the renovation game, adding to their wealth strategy one simple concept: that two (or more!) properties are better than one.

Subdivision is a great investment strategy to:

• Increase the value of the equity held in your property

• Maximise rental income or subsidise your existing mortgage

• Create long-term passive income

It’s all about maximising the utility of an existing block to support your long-term prosperity. Central Avenue Homes is the perfect construction partner to help you get there.

What Is Subdivision?

In the simplest terms, subdividing a property involves legally splitting it up into several lots – each with the potential for development. In many cases, there’ll be an existing home on one of the resulting blocks, as when a super-sized backyard is divided into a separate lot.

Once the property subdivision is approved, there are a few potential paths to take, including:

  • Selling the new or vacant lot for its development potential
  • Build an investment property on the new lot, to be sold or rented out upon completion
  • Demolish the existing house to make way for a larger development – for instance, building multiple townhouses

Let’s chat about turning your vision into reality.

Is My Block Suitable For Subdivision?

There’s no one answer to this question – there are many factors that can influence your chances of approval for subdivision in Perth.

Key factors affecting your lot’s chances of successful subdivision include:

  • Local zoning laws – as Perth’s local zoning laws are determined by the individual councils.
  • Minimum lot sizes – similar to zoning, the guidelines on how small a lot can be are set by Perth’s local councils
  • Sufficient access to build – if your lot is too difficult to reach or the existing structures prevent proper access, the development potential of the new lot is limited

Our 6 Step Process For Custom Builds

Building a custom-designed home doesn’t have to be daunting. Our signature 6 step process takes the pain out of building a custom home, and we have hundreds of happy customers in Perth to prove it. From concept design to completion, see how it all happens below!

You will work closely with our in-house designer Ashleigh. This stage is all about translating your vision into a unique home design. All designs focus on your lifestyle, needs and budget.

There’s no need to select tiles or paint colours just yet – the preliminary design phase focuses on the bigger picture, considering design, flow and layout.

This is also where you decide which construction method best suits your requirements. At Central Avenue Homes, we’ve mastered both traditional and lightweight construction methods, giving you the flexibility to meet your key goals.

When you are happy with the design it will be costed in detail, providing you with a comprehensive specification.

A preliminary agreement – also known as a PPA (Preparation of Plan Agreement) is signed when you accept the design and contract quotation we have produced.
If required, your plans will be prepared for development approval (DA). We liaise with the local authority to ensure your new development is granted approval, keeping the process stress-free for you.

You will meet one-on-one with our dedicated pre-start consultant and company director, Lee. This is when we decide on the details, making the final selections on all the finishing touches.

During this stage, we finalise the construction plans for building approval. We also produce your building contract documents.

This is when it all comes together!

During the final and most exciting stage, our experienced site supervisor Kyel coordinates the building construction. This takes place with oversight and regular consultation from both the owner and registered builder, keeping you informed and involved as your new home takes shape.

Kyel has over 17 years of building experience in the WA building industry and has developed excellent working relationships with all of our contractors. Many of our trades have been working with us for decades, and we select only the highest quality building partners to ensure a high-quality finish is achieved.

Perfect Homes Designed For Smaller Lots

One of the biggest concerns we hear about when subdividing a property is that fear that the resulting lots will be too small.

Of course, this is a key concern for anyone planning to live on the lot themselves, but we hear this question from investors too. After all, making a profit or rental income depends on building highly desirable homes on subdivided land.

That’s why you need to work with the very best in the business. Central Avenue Homes is the premier small lot, dual home and townhouse builder in Perth.

Our in-house designer focuses on functionality, cross ventilation and capturing natural light within the heart of our narrow lot home designs. Each site is assessed individually to ensure home designs are responsive to orientation, potential views and the surrounding environment.
