$25,000 Stimulus Packages to be Available with New Home Builds

With social restrictions easing and normality on the horizon, it is welcome news that the Australian government has announced a building stimulus package that offers a $25,000 cash grant to prospective new home builds.
This new incentive aims to provide a boost to the building industry in light of the recent economic downturn due to the COVID19 crisis, with specific details regarding applicant eligibility including:

  • A grant of $25,000 to eligible owner-occupiers ( not just first home buyers ) to build a new home or substantially where the contract is entered into between today and December 31, 2020.
  • Construction of a new home must be contracted to commence within three months of the contract date.
  • Income thresholds – consistent with the First Home Buyers Deposit Gap Scheme (FHBDGS) – of $125,000 for singles, or $200,000 for couples.
  • A threshold of $750,000 for the value of the new home (including land)

This is an exciting incentive for the new home industry and will help get people into their new homes quicker and easier than ever before. To learn more and to find out if you’re eligible, head to:

Navigating your way through building terminology

For many of us, building our first home is an incredibly exciting,
once-in-a-lifetime experience that will form one of the greatest moments and create some of the best memories of your life. It can also be quite a complex and confusing journey as you are likely not to have been through the experience before.

Why Moving to the Western Suburbs is the Best Choice

The western suburbs of Melbourne already offer welcoming, diverse communities, an under-the-radar food scene, and thriving arts and sports cultures. So when will you be moving in? Here are just a few more reasons why you’ll soon be saying that “West is best!” 

More bang for your buck You’ll find homes in the western suburbs are generally less expensive than those that are located the exact same distance from the city going east or even north. You could seriously save hundreds of thousands of dollars instantly simply by changing direction! The median house price in a suburb like Tarneit North is just $517,550. 

Plenty of options Vacant land and new estates are popping up all the time out west, whereas in other metro areas they are increasingly rare. This means that you could find a home conveniently located within 30 minutes of the CBD, that is less cramped or overdeveloped and closer to health care and schools – probably for far less of a cost than you might find elsewhere. 

Everything feels fresh and new Because the western corridor has been identified as a key area for population growth in Melbourne, there are lots of resources being put into building public spaces and new communities and transforming existing overlooked suburbs into happy, healthy places to live. Developers and governments are now more conscious than ever of incorporating parks, playgrounds, sporting grounds, and even wetlands into residential areas; something you’re unlikely to find in older estates. Public facilities like sporting grounds, health care centres and educational institutions are more likely to be brand new too. 

It’s easy to get around Recent and upcoming public transport and road projects – including the Regional Rail Link, Avalon airport link and the Leakes Road duplication (part of eight main western roads being upgraded) – means that coming home to the western suburbs is getting easier all the time. And, it’s less than half an hour into town from Tarneit station anyway!

You could skip the daily commute Even as the transportation system is getting better and better out west, you could choose to avoid daily travel stress altogether. Find a job much closer to home! The western suburbs are already well known for opportunities in construction, manufacturing, warehousing, industry, and logistics and the planned Hopkins Road Business Precinct, the East Werribee Employment Precinct and a plethora of town centres mean employment prospects are on the rise. You could find your dream job and your dream home here.
