First Home Owners Grant increases to $15,000

03 January 2017

First home buyers purchasing newly built properties will now have access to a $15,000 First Home Owners Grant until 31 December 2017.

Announced last week, Premier Colin Barnett said the decision to increase the grant from $10,000 to $15,000 would help first home buyers enter the property market, stimulate construction in WA’s housing market and provide around 2,000 new jobs.

“We are conscious about housing affordability and this boost will provide more families an opportunity to get into the housing market,” Mr Barnett said.

Speaking to ABC Online last week, REIWA President Hayden Groves said he was worried the increase to the grant would be a detriment to the property market and would like to see the same incentive given to first home buyers purchasing existing homes.

“As an Institute we’re a little concerned that the gap between established property and new property for first home buyers is getting larger,” Mr Groves said.

As with the existing grant, the boost payment applies to new homes up to the value of $750,000 (or up to one million dollars if the home is located north of the 26th parallel).

But wait, there’s more! My 3 favourite Home Builders:

Paul Basso builds the most beautiful Seacrest Homes, Broadway, Ideal Homes and Affordable Homes.

He can offer a variety of prices to build your home according to your budget.

He is good at what he does, he provides assistance to all his contractors, he really cares for the person he is building a house for, and he is always reliable, professional and a great client.

I recommend Paul to build a home for you.

Roy Duric is a small builder that you can trust.

Roy can not only build a full house for you, but he takes on renovations too.

He can build a house from scratch but he can also put in a new bathroom, demolish a wall or change your house configuration.

He is professional, reliable, trustworthy and reasonable.

Dan White from Dam Mar Constructions

I always thought Dan can make anyone happy with his building talents.

He builds big or small to satisfy all types of clients and their desires.

He provides good quality, he is reliable, professional and trustworthy.

I would love to recommend Dan to build your home

Another great house in demolition stage in Sorrento.

Another great house in demolition stage now in Sorrento. I am sure another fantastic home will be built in its place.

Sorrento is changing. Owners are demolishing their homes to build new ones as they cannot find a better place to live than here. With the high cost of renovations, sometimes the best way to get exactly what you want is start from scratch.

I live in Sorrento and walk every morning from my house to the Surf Club. I can see on my walk what is happening in the streets I go by. The old homes have been replaced by brand new modern structures and clean designs, obviously high ceilings and very trendy features. I also drive along other streets in Sorrento and have been noticing all of the changes.

That means the residents don’t want to leave the suburb, they want to keep living in it. And why would;t they? We’re close to the pristine beaches of the West Coast, a scenic drive if it’s too hot to walk, the Marina has undergone so many changes in the time I have lived here, it’s a real hive of activity; or if you’re after something quiet there are a few lovely coastal cafes where you can take in the vista and have a smoothie or a coffee. We live in paradise!

There are very few blocks available for sale here. Act now and buy one so you don’t miss out. There isn’t much land available!
