Construction Cost Estimator Sydney – What are the Costs Involved in Building a Home?


Building a new home is the dream for many Australians. Despite the many challenges, a home that has not been lived in before, has brand new appliances,  and comes with the promise of less maintenance for at least a few years is hard to pass up. The fact that new homes are built according to the latest standards also adds significant appeal.

Hidden cost of building a new home 

Most of the costs of building are apparent, such as materials, labour, architectural services, and land costs. However, there are many fees beneath the surface that many new home builders might be aware of.


Site cost

Your home will need to be connected to water, electricity, gas, NBN, and sewerage. If these services don’t run up to your block, you will need to front the cost to have them extended to your home.

How much you will be paying will depend a lot on the soil test report (which is also another expense), and the distance to the nearest juncture. Expect to add anything from $10,000 to $100,000 to your mortgage.


Miscellaneous Cost


It can seem like construction costs are never-ending, especially when you have registration fees, solicitor’s fees, and bank loan fees all putting a strain on your budget. Your local council may even add a few hundred on top of your first rates bill just to supply you with wheelie bins.
