First Home Buyer? Let’s get started!

Ready to make the dream of owning your first home a reality? Metricon has helped thousands of families and young people move into their first home and we're here to help you too. We’ll guide you through the home ownership process and will be with you every step of the journey.
Let's get started!

Why buy a new home?

There are many benefits to building a new home over buying an established home. First, you get a brand new home with your choice of designer fixtures, finishes, façade, floor plan, design and orientation – a stunning home just perfect for your lifestyle.

First home buyers may also be eligible for government grants and financial incentives that can help make the dream of new home ownership a reality. Our First Home Owner Grant fact sheet includes information about specific grants and stamp duty savings for new homes.

Financing your dream: we can help!

Our mortgage and finance consultants are on hand to guide you through various financial options. If you’re eligible, they’ll explain the steps to getting your first home buyers grant and help you find out what other benefits may be available. Our mortgage consultants will also help you find the right home finance option that works for you.

  • Financial assistance: They’ll help you assess lenders and products tailored specially for first home buyers.
  • Loan calculator: Find out how much you can afford to borrow.

Where to live? Land considerations

Metricon will help you find the perfect block of land for your first home. We’ll guide you through the various steps to securing your block, and ensure factors such as land size, incline and street frontage are taken into consideration. We’ll also help with any developer guidelines governing your land and home design choice. 

To keep the process simple, we've created checklists of the key considerations to note when buying land for your Metricon home.
