From our vast experience in demolishing homes in the Canberra region, the average cost you need to allow for the demolition of your existing home is around $20,000. However, the costs can vary depending on the scale of the existing house, where the property is located and any logistical challenges.


The Benefits of Knockdown/Demolition:

1. Save time and money by not having to try to find another block of land to build your dream home on.

2. No need to pay stamp duty or land tax.

3. No need for real estate agents fees, advertising fees, etc.

4. Having that feeling of living in an established area.

5. Higher resale value in an established area.

Things to consider when comparing our quote with other builders


When receiving a quote from a builder on a knockdown/demolition, you need to consider the following factors:


1. Inspection and removal of asbestos from your existing home (before the demolition of the property). 

2. Disconnection of existing gas lines, water lines and power lines to the property.

3. Provide notice to your surrounding neighbours being directly affected by the demolition of the home.

4. Approvals and certification by relevant authorities.


When you work with BLD Homes, you can be assured that we have the expertise to ensure that the knockdown/demolition of your existing home has been achieved correctly, making it a simple and smooth process for you and all your future neighbours.
