Free first home buying workshop at Kalina

01 February 2019

Springfield locals will be armed with the knowledge they need to escape the rent trap at a free first homebuyer’s workshop held at Stockland’s Kalina community on Saturday, 16 February.

The information session will explore the finance journey when buying a new home and will include a presentation by experts from Home Sweet Loans, who will discuss the latest in interest rates, deposits, construction loans, grants and more.

The event is being held in conjunction with Stockland’s Home Sweeter Home Sale which is making it increasingly easy for first home buyers to get into a new home by offering savings of up to $10,000 on land at all Queensland communities.

There is also help available with the construction process, with up to $25,000 in building bonuses available with a selection of Stockland’s building partners.

David Laner, Queensland General Manager for Residential Communities at Stockland, said the significant savings on offer would make buying a new home even more affordable for a full spectrum of customers, from first home buyers to families and downsizers.

“Stockland has a reputation for creating award-winning masterplanned communities that set a benchmark for sustainability, with affordable, quality homes designed to suit people from all walks of life,’’ Mr Laner said.

“Our highly-liveable communities are renowned for their value for money, focus on health and well-being and access to a full range of amenities including shops, schools, medical services, state-of-the art playgrounds and parks, as well as transport and employment hubs.”

The workshop will be held at the Kalina Sales and Information Centre at Panorama Drive in Springfield.

The Home Sweeter Home Sale will run from 14 January to 3 March, with $10,000 off all residential lots and up to $25,000 in building bonuses. For further details, visit
