I am watching all these tear downs around Rumson. What does it cost to demolish a home?

Figure 2,500 sq ft garage. Does the cost of demolition include carting & permits, etc?

I have a builder who will do it for approximately $15,000 complete. If you'd like his name and number, just contact me through Trulia or my website, below.

Anywhere from $10- $20k. Utilities have to be shut off at the street by the BUYER. The size of the home impacts the cost of demo and hauling away. You will need permits and approval from the town, so be sure to build that into your timeline.
Good luck!

$10 to $20k depending upon the structure? In addition to the tear down cost, you must also consider wheather, gas, water is at the street, I'd hope in Rumson this is not an issues.

Hi Mickey,
I work locally in Rumson and confirmed the cost with a builder. It should cost between 8k-10k to permit, demolish, and cart away a 2500sf home with a garage. If you'd like more info feel free to get in touch at kelly@kellyzaccaro.com. Good luck!

Be careful, the cost of the demolition can vary much higher than Frank's estimate depending on hazardous materials in the home such as asbestos.

About $30 to $40K. Note: have the building permit before you demo the home. Regards,
