FHBA New Homes of the Week: 01 February 2017 (Edition 40)

In our second edition (Edition 40) of FHBA New Homes of the Week for 2017, we are proud to showcase our top first home buyer homes priced under your relevant State’s First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) threshold.

In the media in recent times, there has been a lot said about how difficult it is for singles to purchase their first home on their own. Whilst a six figure salary is needed to buy a ‘median’ house in cities such as Melbourne & Sydney, singles in these cities and in other capital cities of Australia will be glad to know that there are still some affordable brand new home opportunities for them to consider, all eligible for the FHOG in the relevant state (provided they buy as an owner occupier). Our top 5 this week includes some great options for singles who may be looking to live solo or looking to rentvest.

Tip: If you do buy solo and live in the first home on your own, why not consider a roommate/flatmate to help pay for your home loan repayments!
