Thought I would just pop in and share with you something in regards to the first home owners grant for new homes - may be applicable to those signing contracts in the next couple of months.
On July 1, this grant increases from $7,000 to $10,000. We were due to go to contract at the end of May but I just rang my BC and delayed my contract until the first week of July so I can get the extra $3,000!
We are lucky that we aren't building until November so we have a bit of time up our sleeve and can delay our contract signing without it impacting our start date.
Here is a link to the State Revenue Office's website where they have more info: http://www.sro.vic.gov.au/SRO/sronav.ns ... 58BEB?open
Just something to consider for people going into contract in May/June!
