THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU’RE BUILDING AN INFILL

PICK THE BEST LOCATION FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE (AND FUTURE HOME)

Building an infill home is a great, eco-friendly way to utilize the space in an already developed neighbourhood. However, you want to take into consideration the type of building you want and how it fits in that community. Our Kimberley team can help you with just that! We have a keen understanding of both your needs as well as your neighbourhood’s aesthetic.

 

And if you’re not sure where to begin, contact Amanda Aranas, our Build Where You Want Specialist who is here to help you search for a home site with your new home design in mind. And if you already own a property, our Team is ready to get your design on paper.

 

FIGURE OUT THE TYPE OF HOUSE YOU WANT

Infill developments can be of many types – a bungalow, duplex, skinny home, or whatever you want it to be! You want the home to do 2 things – meet your needs and be suitable for your land. Here, too, contacting our Kimberley experts will help as we can design a house that meets your expectations and fits in your budget. 

 

WORK OUT YOUR BUDGET

Numbers can be quite tricky with an infill project due to several factors. You not only need to get timely approval but you also have to meet specific infill construction codes. Additionally, you have to hire a contractor with enough infill project experience – such as our Kimberley team. 

 

POTENTIAL PROPERTY VALUE

Another factor to look at when you are looking at building an infill is the eventual property value if there is a possibility you are going to sell in the future. In many cases, property value increases as the community further matures. It’s a good idea to think about all the above steps while also considering 5-10 years in the future so that you can set yourself up in a community where you can thrive while also possibly making a profit in the years to come.
