In this episode, Evelyn and Maddie dive into the world of grants, schemes, and concessions which can significantly assist homebuyers in Australia. We guide you through the complexities help you make informed decisions on your path to homeownership.
We start by understanding the basics of what they are and how they differ. There have been updates to some of the schemes last week, so we’ll take you through what’s changed. We explore the eligibility criteria and discuss state-specific variations and recent updates to the grants, schemes and concessions across different states & territories.
One of the most significant grants is the First Homeowner Grant (FHOG), designed specifically for first-time homebuyers purchasing new homes. We explore the eligibility criteria and discuss state-specific variations and recent updates to the grant across different territories.
Stamp duty is a significant consideration for homebuyers, so we’ll delve into stamp duty concessions and exemptions. We break down what stamp duty is and how it affects your home purchase.
We also touch upon other grants and schemes aimed at specific demographics or circumstances, such as the First Home Guarantee Scheme, Family Home Guarantee, First Home Super Saver Scheme, and Help to Buy Schemes. These additional programs can provide further opportunities for aspiring homebuyers.
