Looking for a simple solution to creating a subdivision?

If you own land that is greater than 4000sqm, with the potential to be subdivided, you are in a great position to take control of your own financial future!

Create Your Own Land Estate

Many Perth residents do not realise that they have the potential to develop their own land as it seems like such a huge project. They assume their options are limited to staying put and doing nothing, or selling their land to a developer.

However, with Create Your Estate, you can partner with a trusted expert who will guide you step by step through the subdivision process, ensuring you make the best decisions to maximise your potential returns!

Create Your Estate is a local Perth company with over 20 years experience in creating civil subdivisions. We are the only company in Perth who are able to offer an end to end project management service that enables local residents to unlock the equity in their land.

Don’t lose thousands in costly mistakes by attempting to do it yourself!

Our small team of subdivision and civil engineering construction experts will partner with you every step of the way and will talk to you in every day simple language, not complicated engineering speak. You will always be informed and educated during each phase of the project as we turn your land into a brand new estate, ready for sale.

How It Works

We Plan Your Subdivision
This is where we decide the most efficient and profitable way to divide your land into new housing lots.

We need to consider not only the lot plan but also things like roads, water, power, NBN, retaining, drainage and sewerage.

We Get all the Necessary Approvals
The red tape! No need to worry though as we obtain all approvals from the local authorities on your behalf. We will be there every step of the way to guide you. We will run through all documentation with you, explaining it in easy to understand language.
We manage the entire construction process
This is where we finally break ground! All physical construction works are managed and constructed by us, as per the detailed designs and approval conditions. We will provide you with regular progress updates so you will always be kept in the loop.
We finalise all the documentation ready for sale
All the paperwork is finalised and you now have the option of selling your property as vacant land or perhaps as house and land packages. We can recommend builders and real estate agents to help you decide what is best for your situation.

Our Simple 7 Step Process to Create Your New Land Estate

Step 1

Initial Design/Zoning Authority

We inspect the site in detail and engage with the various authorities to obtain the important information we require. We liaise with Council, Water Corporation and Western Power and other related services to determine the planning and servicing requirements.


Step 2

Planning Design and Approval

The formal planning process is initiated with detailed plans and reports prepared and submitted for approvals. The reports can include traffic, servicing, geotechnical, environmental and bushfire management reports.

Step 3

Feasibility/Costing Budget

We prepare project cost estimates, feasibility and cash flow analyses based on the preliminary subdivision design plan. These are presented and explained to you.


Step 4

Finance Approval

Once all preliminary costs are established an appointed finance expert will initiate the process of exploring and finding the most appropriate finance solution for your project.

Step 5

Detail Design & Documentation

Detailed civil engineering drawings and associated strategies are finalised. 


Step 6

Construction works and Supervision

All physical construction works are managed and monitored by us, in accordance with the approved design drawings. Once the works are finalised, practical completion is signed off, statutory payments are made, and the formal documentation is lodged in preparation for the new titles to be created.

Step 7

Settlement/Sale of Land

With the titles now issued the land can be settled and is ready for sale. The selling agent will commence, or continue, to sell the lots having been appointed on the basis of local knowledge and a proven track record.


How to Fund Your Own Subdivision Project

Financing a new subdivision project is a specialist field. You can't just talk to your local finance broker about putting a deal like this together. You need a qualified professional who deals with these types of projects day in, day out.

At Create Your Estate we can recommend the right people to talk to, who have experience in financing complex civil subdivision projects and will help guide you through the process.

We understand this can seem like a daunting project to take on, that's why we have created a cost structure that is set out in manageable stages. You will only ever be committing to payments one stage at a time, with no obligation to continue on to the next stage. You are in complete control, free to proceed at your own pace.
