Unlocking First Home Buyer Incentives: Your Pathway to Affordable Homeownership

Are you a first-time home buyer dreaming of stepping into the realm of homeownership? Exciting opportunities await you, as the Australian government has introduced a range of incentives tailored to make your journey smoother and more affordable. At Bayland Finance, we’re committed to helping you understand and leverage these incentives, guiding you toward the home of your dreams. Let’s explore the enticing first home buyer incentives available to you.

Government Schemes: Home Guarantee Scheme

Introducing the Home Guarantee Scheme, a game-changing initiative that empowers first home buyers with the ability to purchase a property with as little as a 5% deposit, all without incurring the cost of lenders mortgage insurance (LMI). This scheme, previously exclusive to singles and couples, has now expanded to encompass friends and family groups who have not owned a property in the past 10 years. Even permanent residents are eligible to participate, making the dream of homeownership accessible to a wider range of aspiring homeowners.

While the opportunity is enticing, it’s important to note that some income eligibility criteria apply. Our team of lending experts at Bayland Finance is here to guide you through the details, ensuring you have a clear understanding of how this scheme aligns with your financial situation.

Stamp Duty Exemption and Concession

In Victoria, the state government is offering a generous incentive to help alleviate the financial burden of stamp duty. First home buyers can benefit from a complete stamp duty exemption on properties valued up to $600,000. And the good news doesn’t stop there – for properties valued between $600,001 and $750,000, a partial stamp duty concession is available. This incentive has the potential to save you thousands of dollars, leaving more room in your budget for other important aspects of your home buying journey. Note that different concessions apply for each state.

First Home Owner Grant

For those opting for brand new homes or constructions, the First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) is an enticing opportunity. This grant provides a one-off payment to eligible first home buyers, further enhancing your ability to make your homeownership dreams a reality. Whether you’re envisioning a brand new abode or looking to build your dream home from the ground up, the FHOG is there to provide you with valuable financial support.
