Demolish and Build

From old to new without having to move suburbs.

Love where you live but outgrown your home?

If you love your street and suburb, your neighbours and your children's school, but have outgrown your home, knock down and build the home of your dreams with Summit.

Our team of design experts take care of everything - from planning and budget, design and paperwork, all the way through to the demolition and build - we can help maximise your block's potential.

The savings and benefits are considerable, so whatever your reason to knock down and build is, see for yourself how easy it is with Summit.


Benefits and savings to knock down and build

Not only will you get to stay in an area you love, you won't have to factor in an array of fees including real estate fees, advertising fees, stamp duty, taxes, repair costs to sell your home, moving costs and more. 

Plus, if you have a large block, you may even have room for two new homes - one to sell and one to live in - giving you the financial freedom you might not have thought possible.
