Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Mail Us

More than half a million homeowners have enough space on their property to build a granny flat, which could boost home values by 30 per cent and add around 27 per cent to rental income according to a recent survey 

The survey, by CoreLogic and Archistar, identified 583,440 properties in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane that meet the criteria for an additional self-contained unit of at least 60 square meters. 

The Quickest Way to Boost Property Values

Constructing a two-bedroom granny flat would require an initial investment of around $110-$200,000 and has proven to be one of the quickest ways of manufacturing equity and boosting rental yield. 

However, while inexpensive, investors have to be sure they stay on the right side of the law.  Each state has separate legislation on the right to occupy granny flats, there are issues relating to the subdivision of the property, plus Capital Gains Tax considerations.
