If you have been thinking about building a new home in the beautiful coastal town of Victor Harbor, now is an opportune time.

The recent announcement of the Federal Government HomeBuilder stimulus scheme for new housing means that the home you have always wanted to build, may well become a reality.

A cash grant of $25,000 will be available to land buyers who sign a build contract before the end of the year. And the grant doesn’t impact on the $15,000 First Home Owner Grant, so if you ARE a first home buyer, you could access up to $40,000 in total!

There is some criteria surrounding the HomeBuilder Grant, so to save you time, we have answered some frequently asked questions below. And as always, if you still have questions, please contact our Sales Agent Richard Joy on 0439 504 440.

Here is what you need to know about the $25k HomeBuilder Grant.
