First Home Buyer Sydney

What do first home buyers in Sydney need to know?

First home buyers in Sydney need to be confident with the builder they’re partnering with for their new home design. Metricon has been building homes for Australian families for more than 40 years, and our experience, innovation and reputation sets us apart. Metricon’s new home designs in Sydney are perfect for first home buyers in NSW, offering innovation, practicality and affordability. With Sydney’s real estate market being so competitive, building a home remains one of the most affordable ways to become a first home buyer in Sydney.

Do you pay stamp duty for first home buyers in Sydney?

One of the reasons building a home is more affordable than buying is due to the large savings first home buyers in Sydney can make on stamp duty. Stamp duty is only charged on the value of the land, not the value of the house, when you are building a home. That can save you thousands of dollars. And when you put that on top of the Sydney first home buyers grant that you may be eligible for, your dream home becomes a lot closer to reality.

How much should first home buyers spend?

If you are a first home buyer in Sydney or NSW, how much to spend on your first home is probably top of your questions list. With financial considerations such as deposits and lenders mortgage insurance, there’s a lot to think about when buying your first home.

At Metricon, we offer resources that can help you make these decisions. One of those resources is our Borrowing Calculator. It can help you understand your borrowing power, which is the amount a bank may lend you, based on your current financial circumstances. One of the great things about choosing Metricon is you will know exactly what you are getting for the price you pay. When you choose a brand, a design and a floorplan, all the inclusions are clear and transparent, helping you make the right decisions for you and your family.
