FHBA New Homes of the Week: 07 December 2016 (Edition 38)

In Edition 38 of FHBA New Homes of the Week we are proud to showcase our top first home buyer homes priced under your relevant State’s First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) threshold, all with a ‘summer’ & ‘coastal’ feel to them, to celebrate the start of summer.

Do you want to buy your first home within a short distance of Australia’s beautiful shores?

Are you looking for a first home that will allow you to receive your State’s first home owner grant & other concessions?

It is the great Australian summer ritual: packing up and heading for the beach, especially with most parts of Australia only getting hotter due to global warming. But imagine if you actually just lived near the beach?

With the summer season already here, this week we look at a range of properties that are located within a short distance to one of many Australia’s beautiful beaches and shores (all with eligibility for the FHOG!)

Not a beach person? Not to worry, perhaps one of our previous editions may suit you better?
