Buying your first home can be a little daunting and there is no denying it is a big commitment but it doesn’t have to be so scary. It’s something you only do once, like buying your first car or getting married for the first time, it’ exciting and scary all at once but there is help out there.
The first home owner’s grant (FHOG) is a $7000 payment from the Australian Government. It’s a genuine grant that you don’t have to repay; nor do you pay interest on it.
To see if your eligible for the grant you can log on to the First Home Owner Government website and you can read the guide for application, forms and publications and also look at some frequently asked questions.
Eligible applicants may apply for the first home owner grant (FHOG) through the Office of State Revenue at the address below, or through a financial institution if that lender is a FHOG Approved Agent.
If you are applying for a loan from a financial institution to purchase an established property or to build a new home, check if your lender is a FHOG Approved Agent. If so, the agent will be able to receive and process your application. You may also be able to receive your grant funds earlier.
So if your ready to purchase your new home or your kids are and you have any questions please give me a call and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability or point you to the person that can.
Buying a home is exciting and I’d love to be apart of it!
