NSW property market news

As a rule, the closer you are to the capital city, the higher the land prices become. And NSW is no exception, with median land prices in Sydney around $450,000, compared with just $150,000 in regional NSW.

Land price is dictated by supply and demand, and with vacant land becoming much harder to find in both Sydney and Melbourne, land prices are becoming abnormally high – especially when you consider that there’s the cost of a build on top of that.

As a consequence, for affordable property, most people in NSW are looking to the regional areas. The good news is that through one of our kit homes, establishing property outside of the city is affordable in a way that the headlines about how expensive it is to live in NSW would never admit.

We have a great choice of designs to match the diverse range of NSW climates and lifestyles, with every size and style of house – from country cottages to five bedroom family homes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a kit home?

The term kit home refers to a home where most of the major components are prefabricated in a factory. Once these components are manufactured, the kit home is then delivered to a building site where further assembly takes place. This assembly could include cutting and trimming parts on-site.

As the frames and trusses, among other materials, are delivered to the site, a kit home is exactly the same as any other on-site build. While the home may be delivered on-site in an unconstructed form, with kit homes, there is always the ability to choose different materials and design options. For example, there is a choice between treated pine and steel for the kit home’s frame.

Whether you’ve just started looking at kit homes or you’re ready to start the building process, Kitome is a valuable asset during this process. Offering insight and assistance, with Kitome, you can create the home you’ve always dreamed of without the overblown price tag of a traditional build.

What is included in a kit home?

A kit home comes with a range of inclusions that can be customised throughout various stages of the building process. Inclusions in stage one encompass everything that is needed to get the house to lock up. This means frames and trusses, windows and cladding. Entrance doors, door handles and locks are among additional inclusions.

Stage two includes all internal linings and finishings. This refers to things like insulation, cornices, skirting and architraves. Stage three focuses on the fit-out of areas such as the kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Inclusions are things like ovens, range hoods, dishwashers, bathtubs, laundry tubs and sinks. Tapware, tiles and cabinets are also considered.

Other typical inclusions for kit homes centre around preparing plans for NSW Council submission and gaining an engineer’s certification. It’s worth noting that expenses such as transporting the kit home to the building site, along with electrical and plumbing works are not typical inclusions.

How long does it take to build a kit home?

When it comes to building a kit home, project duration can vary depending on a variety of factors. For example, a kit home can be built in as little as 8 weeks. However, for an owner-builder who takes on the majority of work, the home may take anywhere between 8 to 10 months to complete.

There are also other factors to consider. Larger and more complex kit homes will naturally take longer to complete. However, a smaller and more traditional build may take just as long if weather interruptions occur or if Council approval is delayed. It’s also worth noting that any deviations from the original building plan will also add to the length of the project.

When building a kit home, it is normally the interior work that takes the most time. It can take anywhere between a few hours and mere days to erect the exterior shell of a kit home. Whereas a contractor may take between two to three months to install and complete interior works.

How much does it cost to build a kit home in NSW?

Kit homes range in price depending on the number of bedrooms. For a three-bedroom kit home, expect the cost to start at $79,789. For those looking to build a four-bedroom kit home, costs start at $104,161. Finally, those planning to erect a five-bedroom kit home can expect to pay upwards of $148,665. These costs exclude building-related expenses. 

When looking at the price of kit homes, it’s worth comparing these costs to average house prices in Australia. To put kit home prices in context, it is estimated that the average cost of building a new home in Australia is around $385,173. 

For those wanting to build a kit home, Kitome can put you in touch with a home loan specialist that is well versed in helping borrowers with kit homes. These specialists understand the difference between obtaining finance for a kit home versus a traditional home. All of which can help you receive a more tailored service.

Are kit homes cheaper than building?

When it comes to building a house, kit homes are a smart investment. This is because the average cost of building a kit home is more cost-effective than building a more traditional house. For context, it is estimated that the average cost of building a house is $385,173. Whereas those looking to build a three-bedroom kit home can expect to pay around $79,789. 

While kit homes are cheaper to build than more traditional homes, it doesn’t mean that there is a compromise on quality. Rather, individuals that choose to invest in a kit home are afforded with a wide range of options. Whether making choices surrounding cladding or interior design options, kit homes are in fact completely customisable. 

Combining architectural quality with cost-effectiveness, kit homes are cheaper than building traditionally. This fact is highlighted when you consider that a home with basic finishes in Adelaide costs $1,580 per square metre to build. In Brisbane, this cost is $1,800, while in Melbourne and Sydney the per square metre cost is $1,720 and $1,780 respectively. 

Meanwhile, a kit home can cost anywhere between $316 and $593 per square foot.

Do kit homes hold their value?

Kit homes are a great asset to owners. This is because research indicates that kit homes do not depreciate in value. Rather, they have an 84% return on investment rate. As kit homes are generally cheaper to build than traditional houses, this is great news for those looking to sell a kit home.

However, not all kit homes are created equal. This means that kit homes with basements and more modern additions are likely to enjoy increased value. Meanwhile, kit homes with basic amenities are likely to simply hold their value. Typically, kit homes will only depreciate when in a poor location and condition.

This means that kit homes that are well looked after will hold and potentially increase their value. As such, kit homeowners should pay attention to keeping the home in good condition – both internally and externally.

Finally, it’s also worth noting that the square footage of a kit home will play a large role in determining overall worth. For example, larger houses are valued higher than smaller kit homes.
