Not sure what your actually asking, but in your area there will be a number of requirements if you are doing anything more than an interior demolition and depending on the age of the house (anything before 1974) even an interior demolition could require various permits, and specially licensed contractors to demolish and dispose of the building materials properly. You should contact the Brookline building permit department to find out exactly what will be required.

Thanks for posting this, it's very informative. Now the question is, do you know of any demolition companies in Chicago? I'm trying to help a friend completely redo her house. Anyway, any suggestions or ideas would be great! Thanks!

It is a vague question, but who knows why you are asking. If you are doing demolition of the whole house, then stand back. If you are looking for smaller interior demolition, look for a experienced contractor. It can be fun to knock things down, but be careful.

much depends on the location you are looking at. In Brookline it is rare to find a vacant piece of land. I just built a home in Brookline and if you are selling, I maybe interested in buying it.

Does going with the demolition route make it more affordable to buy the land for and build a house?

I think it depends on how much it costs to demolish the previous house. I think it would be okay if you could find a cheap option, because then you can build your house exactly how you want. If that doesn't work you could just remodel. http://www.maddixexcavating.com/services.html

I have the same question. My husband and I are on the market for a new home. We can't decide if we want to go the demolition route or not. Is it better to rebuild after a demolition? Hopefully we decide soon!

I would guess that you are best off with a local contractor in most situations. I am actually looking for an interior demolition service right now. An old factory that I own needs to be converted into a warehouse.

I would contact a local real estate professional to help with this answer and to save time and money.
(I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro if you want help doing so.)

A home that needs multiple renovations, is falling down or violates multiple building codes, requires demolition. The cost of demolishing a house usually includes the cost of removing the building and the cost of any permits required by your city or state.
