$25,000 Australian HomeBuilder Scheme

On 4 June 2020 the Australian Government announced the HomeBuilder Scheme to provide eligible owner-occupiers (including first home buyers) with a grant of $25,000* to build a new home, substantially renovate an existing home or buy an off the plan home/new home. The eligible contract must be signed between 4 June 2020 and 31 December 2020 (inclusive).

Construction need not commence prior to 31 December 2020, however, must commence within three months of the contract date. Further, construction cannot have commenced before 4 June 2020. Find out more here - https://www.revenue.nsw.gov.au/grants-schemes/homebuilder

First Home Buyers Assistance Scheme

The NSW Government has also announced that from 1 August, 2020, First Home Buyers who purchase a new home up to the value of $800,000 may be entitled to an exemption from transfer (stamp) duty. This is an increase from the previous threshold of $650,000. First Home Buyers who purchase a new home with a value of $800,000 to $1,000,000 may be eligible to a partial exemption from transfer (stamp) duty. The new transfer (stamp) duty threshold will be in place for 12 months and will apply to contracts executed from 1 August 2020 to 31 July 2021 *.
