We had the pleasure of working with We Build Australia in building our townhouse. From the design process through to selection of our interior add-ons the experience was seamless. Thank you We Build Australia team for excellent service and a beautiful home!
In recent years, granny flats have become easier and faster to build in the majority of local councils across each state. As part of the Affordable Rental Housing State Environmental Planning Policy 2009, also known as ‘SEPP’, granny flats can be built in all residential areas and can be approved in as little as 10 days. As Australia’s cost of living increases, families are looking to maximise their income. Granny flats have served as a great solution, with thousands of Australian families building a granny flat on their property to rent out to tenants or provide a home for family members. They have also proven to be one of the most desired features of modern Australian homes. In fact, a recent study indicated that they are the second most sought after house feature after swimming pools.
Why build granny flat?
Granny flats are a flexible and convenient housing option with a myriad of uses. They were traditionally been built for the purpose of accommodating elderly relatives, hence the term “granny flat”. However, in recent years their popularity has risen with many Aussie families investing in them in order to achieve an improved balance between work and leisure. Granny flats are a great investment, providing a space for entertainment without interfering the family home. They are also a convenient alternative to a home office and can built for the purpose of a backyard business, such as a hair salon, saving you thousands on renting a commercial property. Along with enhancing your lifestyle, granny flats are a great way of obtaining a higher rental yield, and thus a better return on investment.
