Are you looking to buy your first home?


If you are looking to make the dream of owning your very first home a reality then Metricon is ready to get you started on this daunting but exciting process. We have managed to help thousands of families and young people to build their first home so have the knowledge and experience to get first home buyers into the property market and out of the rental trap.

Why buy a new home?

One of the benefits of building a new home over buying an established home is that you get a brand new home with your choice of designer fixtures, finishes, façade, floor plan, design and orientation – a home perfectly created for your family’s lifestyle.

Financing your dream: First Home Owners Grant, mortgages, home loans, interest rates

First home buyers may also be eligible for the government grants and financial incentives that can help make the dream of new home ownership a reality. We have created a handy fact sheet that includes plenty of information about the Australian Government’s First Home Owners Grant (or FHOG). In some states there are additional incentives for first home owners who are building a new home so it pays to do some research to find out if you are eligible for financial assistance. This fact sheet also includes information on potential stamp duty savings for new homes.

Metricon also has mortgage and finance partners who can assist with guiding first home buyers through the different financial options that are available. Consider talking to one of our preferred partners to see which home finance option might work best for you. You can also use the handy calculators to assist you with working out home loan repayments, savings plans and borrowing options and also helping you set a budget to save for your first home.
