Queensland First Home Buyers
The Queensland government currently offers a grant of $20,000 towards buying or building your new house, unit or townhouse (valued at less than $750,000). This amount will drop after 31 December, 2017 but it has not been announced to what at this stage. More information about the FHOG initiative can be fund here.
To further assist Queensland first home buyers, Metricon offers some amazing savings on their Freedom range. Customers can choose from one of four upgrade packs, including kitchen, bathroom, cooling and flooring, or they can have them all! Details about the packs can be found here.
