First Homebuyers Grant now increased to $10,000!


First Home Buyers in Western Australia now have greater opportunity to build and own their own home with the recent increase of the First Home Owners Grant from $7000 to $10,000 from 15 September 2013.

The First Home Owners Grant is a one off $10,000 payment from the State Government for first homebuyers that can be used to assist first homebuyers building a new home.

Celebration Homes Sales Manager Stuart Jeffs said “This significant increase to the First Home Owners Grant now offers an exciting opportunity for first homebuyers in WA looking to stop paying off somebody else’s mortgage whilst renting and finally get into a home of their own.”

“The benefits of building a new home include no more renting, getting a brand new house designed to suit your needs, and little to no maintenance with all new fixtures and finishing’s,” he said.

“Celebration Homes experienced team will guide first homebuyers through the entire application process to access the grant, and through our in-house finance team at Resolve Finance we also provide access to a range of non-genuine savings and low deposit finance products making it easier to afford your new home.”
