FHBA New Homes of the Week: 22 February 2017 (Edition 43)

In recent times, there has been a lot of debate between politicians and experts on ‘out of the box’ strategies that can help first home buyers get into the market. Whilst it is great to see the issue of housing affordability in public discussion most of the proposals are far from settled. We understand how hard it is to save for a deposit and how hard it will continue to be in the future. We also understand there are some first home buyers who are looking to get into the market sooner with a small deposit, therefore, this week we have selected 5 brand new homes that you can potentially purchase with a $30,000 deposit!

Disclaimer: The figures above are for illustration purposes only and should not be relied upon. The deposit requirement figures are sourced from various financial sources. Before making any financial or investment decision you should seek professional advice and speak to a Licensed Mortgage Broker – to determine if you have enough savings and if you qualify for the loan.

As always with FHBA New Homes of the Week, in Edition 43 our top selections are all priced under the relevant State’s First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) threshold.
