FHBA New Homes of the week: 10th Aug 2016 (Edition 22)

In edition 22 of FHBA New Homes of the Week we highlight some of the most popular off-the-plan opportunities for first home buyers, all of which have units priced under your relevant State’s First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) threshold.

We currently have access to dozens of FHOG eligible projects that you can purchase now (with a small deposit) and settle in 2017. In today’s 22nd edition of FHBA New Homes of the Week we take a look at our top 5 new releases to be completed in 2017.  The top 5 for this week can’t be found in our FHBA New Homes section just yet as they have only been released recently, so if you want to know more, please complete the contact form below.

When buying off-the-plan it is important to understand that lenders will only provide approval in principle for finance. Generally, settlement of the property is too far in the future to approve a loan. Therefore, we encourage first home buyers to talk to a Mortgage Broker prior to signing a off-the-plan contract, as a Mortgage Broker will guide you on the level of savings you will require when settlement on the property is due. FHBA Broker’s are in a great position to provide first home buyers with advice and guidance before entering into a contract as well as keeping in constant contact through to settlement.

Buying off the plan does come with some risks, however for those wanting to buy a new FHOG eligible home (such as an off-the-plan purchase) provides first home buyers with a clear goal and greater motivation to save for a deposit prior to settlement. View our tips for buying off-the-plan, by clicking here
