Reasons To Build Granny Flats With Us

Why Build With Tailored Granny Flats

At Tailored Granny Flats we realise everyone’s different, as are the reasons behind our clients’ decisions to build Tailored granny flats!

Tailored Granny flats offer an affordable way for investors to earn a second rental income from a property, while for families they provide invaluable intergenerational living by providing a home for those who can’t afford to buy their own place or want to be close to their family but retain their independence.

For investors, Tailored granny flats help with loan repayments, positively gearing their property and earning a return on your investment of up to 20%.

Whatever the reason for building a Granny flat, we aim to provide you with the right solution that suits your needs, lifestyle & budget and makes a positive impact on your life, while making the journey as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.

Tailored Granny Flats are ideal for Property Investors & Landlords who want to earn amazing returns on their investment and simply make more money. Other forms of investment, such as the stock market, are far less attractive options and can’t match the high rate of Return of Investment (ROI) achieved by property investors that have built Tailored Granny Flats on their properties.

Since the new Affordable Housing SEPP was introduced in 2009 the vast majority of Tailored Granny Flats that have been built have been for property investors that were looking to achieve a second rental income from their property.

BENEFITS OF A TAILORED GRANNY FLAT (in most cases)

  • Earn more money (usually over $1,000 a month after interest payments) by generating a second rental income the legal way.
  • Achieve a return on investment (ROI) of around 20%.
  • Change a negative geared investment into a positive geared investment, helping investors to pay off their mortgage quicker and in turn able to purchase more properties.
  • Increase the re-sale value of their property, helping you maximize the capital gain from the property.
  • Additional tax depreciation benefits increase your ROI even further.

Investment Examples

The ROI shows the annual rent return as a percentage of the total investment. These examples don’t take into account individual circumstances, financial position, depreciation and other factors which may make the investment even more profitable.

As you can see from the example given in the Property Investors & Landlord tab, you can also recieve an additional $236 per week (or $1021 per month) to help with your finances. That same $236 per week equates to $12,260 per year – now that is money that could be well spent on an annual overseas family holiday, a new car, buying new furniture… the possibilities are endless.

A Tailored Granny Flat is a great solution for parents needing a sanctuary to get away from the noise of the main house or possibly to move the noise (and noisemakers) out by giving them their own retreat.

A hobby or retreat room is an inexpensive way to give you all the room you need at a fraction of the cost of extending your home while adding value to your overall property. Why not build that pool room, teenager retreat, rumpus room, music studio, a games or chill-out room you have always wanted to get that peace and quiet you like while most importantly knowing where kids are and that they are safe in your backyard. Or if you need the space to get away why not build your own hobby room where you can get away and relax and do what you enjoy most.
