If a majority or large part of the value of your home is held in the land, not in the structure, rebuilding may be right for you. It’s no secret that everyone wants to live in Austin. There are certain neighborhoods within Austin where land values far exceed the value of the structures built on them – these are excellent candidates for tearing down and rebuilding.


The age and condition of your home will be a major factor in determining if it should be rebuild or renovated. Homes with architectural or historical significance may lead to a renovation to preserve those features. Major problems with a home, such foundation failure or an accumulation of smaller failures may mean it is better to tear down a home and start over.


What you can build on your lot is determined in large part by city code, trees and any covenants restricting the property. Newcastle Homes is particularly adept at maximizing the buildable square footage of a lot and we can do the due diligence you need to proceed with your project with absolute confidence.
