“It re­ally comes down to the value of buy­ing sec­ond-hand as op­posed to build­ing new,” Mr Harvie said. “We are see­ing a lot of peo­ple in­ves­ti­gat­ing home im­prove­ments af­ter buy­ing in ar­eas like Leem­ing, Bull Creek and Myaree, where you can get a good deal on an ex­ist­ing home.”

Mr Harvie said home im­prove­ment also re­mained pop­u­lar in Ap­ple­cross and Mt Pleas­ant and that there were a num­ber of triplex and du­plex de­vel­op­ment blocks through­out the City of Melville.

Sum­mit Homes Group picked up both best pro­ject builder and best customer ser­vice at the re­cent Mas­ter Builders WA awards.

“We are built around peo­ple and we are ex­tremely mind­ful that we are in this busi­ness to build bet­ter houses for our clients,” Mr Harvie said.

Sum­mit Homes Group was pre­sented with eight Mas­ter Builders WA awards last month.
