First Home Buyers – Did You Know?!

First home buyers, you could own your own piece of luxury/custom built on 5% deposit

As of July 1st 2020, the Federal Government has opened up 10,000 more spots for first home buyers looking to crack the Australian property market with a minimal deposit. Known as the First Home Buyer Deposit Scheme, the benefit allows first-time buyers to put down just 5 percent deposit for a property with the government acting as guarantor for an additional 15 percent, so that the usual Lenders Mortgage Insurance is not required – Big savings!
As of January 1 this year 10,000 applications – for couples and singles alike – were made available, with a second 10,000 made available July 1 2020, for the 20/21 financial year. It’s a promising initiative for those looking to buy or build, but industry research has found that as many as eight-in-ten first home buyers don’t understand what the scheme is or if they are eligible to take advantage of it.


First Home Loan Deposit Scheme Price Caps:

In order to access one of the 10,000 First Home Loan Deposit Scheme applications, the property you are purchasing/building must fall below a certain threshold.
These are:
State/territory: Capital City/Regional Centre: Rest of State:
NSW $700,000 $450,000
Vic $600,000 $375,000
Qld $475,000 $400,000
ACT $500,000 N/A

There are a few other grants to be taken advantage of. This includes the new HomeBuilder Scheme and the First Home Owners grant.

Budget, Time Frame & Quality


You can rest assured we all know all the horror stories out there and we have both the experience and the systems to ensure your build is one of the successes rather than the vast majority that result in nightmares for the client! There are three components to any build – Budget, Time Frame and Quality. Naturally, you would like all three and that can be achieved in balance, but it is important to note they are all linked. So, we need to get clear at the beginning what your priority is.

Budget

Just because you choose budget doesn’t mean you will end up with an inferior build. Just like paying over the top will not guarantee quality! But, budget will always be top priority for both of us and all subsequent decisions will be made with that in mind.

Time Frame

If you are on a tight time frame, then be honest with your deadline. If we cannot meet this, we will be honest and not waste your time. Equally, you should insist on a timeline plan from your potential builder. This will ensure the handover date has been planned. If your builder cannot (or will not) provide this information, then they are incapable of achieving a successful outcome.

Quality

Quality is often talked about and rarely delivered in residential construction. It is linked to time frames because it takes longer to deliver a higher standard of work.
  Building your dream home will be one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make, and choosing the right builder that will accommodate your Budget, Time Frame and Quality requirements can be difficult. On the surface it may be hard to differentiate one builder from the next; Using our ‘Home Builder’s Checklist’, will make it easier to gather information and compare offerings from builders in your area, and help you make the right choice the first time. Consider the difference these points make. Check out this testimonial from Sam & Carla Brewer:
