In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the concept of unit-development, its benefits, and the essential steps involved in undertaking a successful development project. Whether you are a seasoned investor or a first-time developer, this guide will provide valuable insights to help you navigate the world of unit-development.

Understanding Unit Development

Unit development, also known as multi-unit development or multi-dwelling development, involves creating multiple residential units on a single property. These units can range from apartments and townhouses to duplexes and villas. Unit-development allows developers to maximise land usage and create multiple income-generating properties in high-demand areas.

Benefits of Unit Development  

  1. Maximised Land Utilisation: Unit development allows you to make the most of your land by constructing multiple units. This significantly increases the potential return on investment compared to building a single dwelling.
  2. Income Generation: Each unit within a development can be rented or sold individually, providing a steady stream of rental income or substantial profits from sales. This income potential makes development an attractive option for investors.
  3. Meeting Housing Demand: Unit-developments can help address the growing need for housing in urban areas. By creating multiple dwellings in high-demand locations, you contribute to the supply of housing options for individuals and families.
  4. Economies of Scale: Building multiple units simultaneously offers economies of scale in terms of construction costs. Bulk purchasing of materials and streamlined construction processes can lead to cost savings and increased profitability.
  5. Diversification of Portfolio: For property investors, unit-development offers the opportunity to diversify their portfolio by adding multiple income-generating properties. This diversification can help mitigate risks associated with relying on a single property.

Steps Involved in a Unit Development Project  

  1. Feasibility Study: Begin by conducting a comprehensive feasibility study to assess the viability of the unit development project. This study should evaluate factors such as market demand, zoning regulations, site suitability, construction costs, and potential returns on investment.
  2. Site Acquisition: Once you have identified a suitable site for unit development, proceed with acquiring the property. Engage with real estate agents or property developers to assist you in finding available sites or consider purchasing properties at auctions or private sales.
  3. Engage Professionals: Assemble a team of professionals, including architects, town planners, surveyors, and builders, who specialise in unit development projects. Their expertise will be invaluable throughout the project, particularly in navigating planning and building regulations.
  4. Design and Approvals: Collaborate with your architect to create a design that maximizes the potential of the site while adhering to relevant planning and building regulations. Submit the design to the local council for approval, ensuring compliance with zoning restrictions and other regulations.
  5. Financing and Budgeting: Develop a comprehensive budget for the entire project, including land acquisition, design, construction costs, and associated expenses. Secure financing through lenders who specialise in property development loans, ensuring you have the necessary funds to complete the project.
  6. Construction and Project Management: Engage an experienced builder to oversee the construction process and manage the project from start to finish. Regularly monitor progress, ensure adherence to timelines, and address any issues promptly to minimise delays and cost overruns.
  7. Marketing and Sales/Rental: Once construction nears completion, develop a marketing strategy to attract buyers or tenants. Engage real estate agents or property managers who specialise in selling or renting multi-unit developments to maximise exposure and optimise returns.
  8. Handover and Settlement: Once sales or rental agreements are in place, facilitate the handover of units to buyers or tenants. Ensure all necessary legal and administrative processes are completed, including settlement of contracts and transfer of titles.

I built my first home all on my own thanks to Sev and Marlise. I don’t even know where to start as words cannot describe how grateful I am that I found these two. To build my own home was only a dream that Sev and Marlise helped make into a reality. The unconditional support and dedication towards whatever I needed throughout the whole process made me feel so safe and looked after. Even though I built my dream home on my own it never felt that way, it didn’t matter the time or day, these guys went out and beyond for me with every detail and step of the process. They are people of their word that you can genuinely trust in this dog eat dog world. They are upfront and honest, it was never about the money but how you felt leaving their office. I had many friends and family tell me about the awful experiences they had building with other companies, so naturally I was a little frighten and on guard but Sev me Marlise squashed this with one meeting. But the biggest thing I can say about Sev and Marlise is that my experience was incredibly fulfilling and wholesome and I am so grateful for them and their expertise and professionalism. If I ever decide to build again I know exactly where to go! Thank you guys so much for all the love and support which has continued even after the build. Much love to you all!! 😊

Sev and Marlise were so incredible throughout our time with them. We’re so happy that we got to work along side an epic team. My partner and I had a vision, Sec and Marlise happily put up with our pickiness and changes (including after hour messaging), and did everything they could do bring that to life. They are so warm and welcoming too making this whole crazy big process more enjoyable. I couldn’t recommend these two enough!

Mike King has helped my little family get into our own home by guiding us through everything that is to know for building a house. I did not know anything about building, I was shown and given 100% support for the process of owning my own home and I am still being supported during the build. I was given an amazing package deal much cheaper then I predicted with heaps of extras, in the location I wanted. Mike King has made it easy to understand the process and I would highly recommend him.
