Savvy Granny Flat Investment for Business Minded Investors 

Whether you have bought an investment property to flip or hold, building a Granny Flat is a fairly simple and straightforward way to increase both your property's value – and its immediate income - having a Granny Flat means you can receive two rental payments from the one investment. 

Younger Investors

A huge challenge for young people trying to get on the property ladder in NSW and the ACT is the daunting property market. A few decades ago, it was expected that by your 30’s you investment in the property market would be well underway. Property investment in the 2020’s is a tough game to enter. 

Savvy young investors are skipping the city home and getting started by buying a lower cost rental in a developing area, and doubling rental income with a Granny Flat. This strategy is enabling them to achieve a house plus Granny Flat completed and tenanted for under half the price of the median property price in Sydney 

You might not have your own home straight away, but you will have a positively geared investment property ensuring a deposit and input from the equity of the investment working as a step towards your dream home.

Older Investors

With some equity in your home, or with an investment property added to your portfolio, a Granny Flat can multiply your income. It’s difficult to find a better investment you can make that will return $400-600 a week in income. With Granny Flats enabled by NSW and ACT state governments as a suitable way to increase housing – using your existing space to build an income for your retirement is a smart move. 

A Granny Flat really is the easiest side-hustle in town. For an extremely reasonable upfront investment, Cubitt's will help you from start to finish in building your Granny Flat. Once built, the Granny Flat whether it be on your own property, or an investment property will double your tenancy income and start to really pile up savings for your future. 

Upfront Feasibility Assures Your Investment

When you’re planning to build, you want assurance. Assurance that your site is suitable, and that you are not going to be impacted mid-build by unforeseen costs. There’s nothing worse than getting a Variation Of Contract (VOC), partway through a build. 

Cubitt’s will always send a Design Consultant out to properly assess your site conditions and work with our in-house, expert team of qualified planners to know:

Can it be built?

What are the environmental considerations? 

What does the Council need? 

What is the total cost of the project? 


Alex and Laura built a 3 bedroom Granny Flat investment with Cubitt's

Alex and Laura knew they wanted to create a second income stream from their investment property, and it all started with a phone call to Cubitt's. In this first call they were able to describe what they were looking to do, and ask questions about the build process

The next step was a visit from a Granny Flat design consultant who came out to their property to assess the site conditions. There they discussed things like site access, the fall of the land,  the best position for a Granny Flat under a council CDC or DA and they were able to have the granny flat location marked out in paint on the lawn, getting a feel for how the property would work once their investment was built.

Delighted by the seamless process, Alex and Laura chose to go ahead with their granny flat build with Cubitt's and this video describes their journey with us.
