Bowen is a tropical climate area. The prices of houses are quite affordable. It is surrounded by beautiful beaches and has schools, shopping center and theaters at an approachable distance.

HomeBuilder grant is set to ignite affordable locations and further help first-timers

The new Federal Government HomeBuilder grant is set to ignite affordable locations and further help first-timers across the nation. The program will be of huge assistance to the construction sector over the next six months, which is good news for everyone given the industry’s importance to the overall health of our economy. The eligibility criteria of the scheme, including maximum income and purchase price limits, means that it will likely benefit first home buyers as well as buyers in more affordable areas the most. The HomeBuilder grant program will provide $25,000 for the construction of a new property, which for first home buyers will be additional grant funds to what is already available. In most states, there are First Home Owner Grants for the construction of new homes already in place. In NSW, it is up to $10,000, in Victoria, the grant is up to $20,000 (depending on the location) and in Queensland, it is $15,000. So, with all of these schemes and incentives bundled together, it’s fair to say now is the best time to be a first-time buyer in a very long time! In some cities, like Sydney and Melbourne, that won’t buy you much real estate anywhere close to the city, but in others, such as Brisbane, it will. However, in the outer-ring and regional areas where property prices are more affordable the numbers change and with it so do the opportunities. With the maximum price point for the HomeBuilder program set at $750,000, I believe it will be the more affordable areas that will benefit the most.

HomeBuilder is a time-limited grant program designed to help Australia’s residential construction market bounce back from the coronavirus crisis

The government has unveiled the HomeBuilder scheme, which will see eligible owner-occupiers who are either building or undertaking a substantial renovation given $25,000 for doing so. In an information package revealed overnight, the Treasury said HomeBuilder is a time-limited grant program designed to help Australia’s residential construction market bounce back from the coronavirus crisis. HomeBuilder will provide eligible owner-occupiers, inclusive of first home buyers, a grant of $25,000 to build a new home or substantially renovate an existing home where the contract is signed between 4 June 2020 and 31 December 2020. Construction works on the home must commence within three months of the contract being signed. “The ‘boost’ to the first home owner grant, which was a temporary, additional [$7,000]-14,000 grant in the wake of the global financial crisis, showed a similar outcome,” Ms Owen said. Similarly for home owners, and first home buyers in particular, those looking to commit to a property purchase within the next six months would already have been saving a deposit and are primed to buy. However, where this policy may create additional construction lies in the fact that it is pivoting decision-making from established property to new housing, likely to be skewed towards house and land projects. This is opposed to the first home owner boost (FHOB) in 2008. “Even though the grant provided additional incentive for newly built property, 85 per cent of those temporary grants were awarded for established purchases,” Ms Owen said.

QLD: The HomeBuilder Scheme complements the Queensland Government’s First Home Owner’s Grant

The $25,000 HomeBuilder stimulus for anyone signing off on construction of a new property has sparked a land rush, with developers reporting a 70 per cent rise in enquiries. “The Scheme complements the Queensland Government’s First Home Owner’s Grant, meaning an eligible purchaser could save up to $40,000. At our Aura community on the Sunshine Coast, for example, this could see a $380,000, three bed, two bath, one car freestanding home cost the customer approximately $340,000, with the potential for further concessions for those eligible. We are expecting local enquiry to increase following the government’s announcement.” Among those on the hunt were previous buyers who had delayed purchases during COVID-19 and buyers spurred on purely by the HomeBuilder grant and other incentives, according to Oliver Hume chief operating officer Julian Coppini. Nicola and Owain George were among Queensland families who were thrilled with HomeBuilder, having signed off on land at Stockland’s Baringa development, north of Brisbane.

Savvy owner-occupiers to receive terrific “bang for their HomeBuilder grant buck”

EPS Property Search’s Patrick Bright has called the program a “massive gift” for Australian home owners who are looking to renovate, due to the potential to return a profit if done well. “For the best return on investment, avoid spending it on the things you cannot see,” he advised – especially if it’s not imperative. The buyer’s agent said creation of an outdoor entertaining area, upgrades to bathrooms and kitchens, and the installation of skylights would be ideal ways to splash the cash. “When it comes to adding value, don’t underestimate the importance of the outdoor space and increasing privacy.” He also touted the benefits of a functional floorplan, either by the addition or removal of internal walls. Get complete details at: x How to get the most from the HomeBuilder scheme There are plenty of options available for savvy owner-occupiers to receive terrific “bang for their HomeBuilder grant buck” and add value to their home, a buyer’s agent has flagged. www.smartpropertyinvestment.com.au
