Fixed price Icon

The Embark Fixed Price, Turn Key. Guarantee* means that you know exactly how much your new home is going to cost before we commence construction and we will never charge you a single cent more for any unforeseen items. 

No hidden extras. No surprises. Just one fixed price. Guaranteed!

Popular with those who simply love their location, have children at local schools, or are empty nesters who want to update the tired family home, the ability to knockdown and rebuild gives you a modern floorplan, in your established community.

A knockdown rebuild essentially allows you to start again from scratch. Unlike renovating or extending, when you demolish and rebuild a new home, you’re not confined to building within the constraints of the existing floorplan and design of your current home.

If your home was designed before open plan living, or doesn’t have an integrated alfresco, you don’t have to sell and buy elsewhere, you can save the stamp duty and simply rebuild your new dream on your existing block of land.

Lean on our design, building and construction expertise, where we can assist from the planning and approval phases, through to delivery of a modern, open plan, fully integrated, energy efficient home.

Take a tour through our home collections and be excited by the possibilities – where you can have it all -alfresco, open planning living and more – all in your existing community.

With extensive experience in the knockdown rebuild market, we have an efficient and streamlined approach to each build, allowing for individual preferences.

Benefits of  knocking down and rebuilding

Knock down rebuilds can save you a significant amount of money compared to selling your existing home or buying or rebuilding a main home. Some of the potential cost savings involve:

  • Stamp duty – You won’t pay any stamp duty on a knock-down rebuild, but if you sell your existing home and buy or build a new one on another site, your stamp duty could be as much as $20,000.

  • Real estate commission and advertising – You can easily spend hundreds and probably thousands of dollars in marketing your home to sell. On top of that, expect your real estate agent’s commission to be around $15,000 to $25,000.

  • Legal fees – Conveyancing costs will usually be around $800 to $2,000 as part of the selling price list.

  • Post pest and building inspections – You expect to pay anything from $800 to $1,500 for pest and building inspections.

All of these fees can be avoided entirely by undertaking a knock down rebuild project.
