First home buyers in SA can access grants and concessions when building their dream home. And when you team up with Metricon, that can make loving where you live a lot easier. We’ve answered some popular first home questions to help South Australians get started on their new property journey.
If you build a new home, first home buyers in SA can access a first home buyer’s grant in South Australia. This grant is paid for by the State Government and can be up to $15,000. The first home buyers grant in South Australia payment is made to first home buyers in SA after their application has been submitted and approved by RevenueSA, or a bank or lender authorized by RevenueSA. The first home buyers grant in South Australia applies when you sign a contract to build a new home, whether it is a house, a flat, a unit, a townhouse or an apartment anywhere in SA.
Stamp duty is a tax on the transfer of the property and is paid on a range of different transactions across South Australia. While first home buyers in South Australia may be eligible for stamp duty concessions, the good news is that for those buying a house and land package, the amount you pay in stamp duty can be a lot less than if you buy an existing home. This is because stamp duty is only charged on the purchase of the black of land, not the unbuilt home.
First home buyers’ eligibility for the first home buyer’s grant depends on a range of criteria. They include the property being your principal place of residence and valued at below $575,000. At least one of the applicants needs to be an Australian citizen and not a company or trustee. To get the first home buyers grant in South Australia you must also live in the home for at least six months, within 12 months of settlement.
At Metricon, we are proud to team up with experienced developers in quality estates across Adelaide and South Australia. For first home buyers in South Australia, when you choose an estate built with families in mind, you’re choosing a location that is close to everything you need, including parks and gardens, schools, shops and transport. At Metricon, we want you to love where you live, and we will work with you from the very start to make that happen.
When first home buyers in South Australia choose Metricon to build with, they are choosing a company with more than 40 years’ experience. That means South Australians benefit from our experience and innovation and can choose from a range of designs that are stylish and affordable. First home buyers in SA can also be assured in knowing they will get exactly what they pay for. Each of Metricon’s brands and new home designs lists the inclusions for the price, giving you peace of mind and helping keep your budget on track.
Thanks to the first home buyer’s super saver scheme, first home buyers in South Australia can use their superannuation fund to help them save for a house. Home buyers can make voluntary (before and after-tax) contributions to their super fund to save for a home. You can release these contributions and any earnings associated with them, to help purchase your first home.
