What does the $25k Homebuilder Grant mean for buyers?

Announced yesterday, the federal government has unveiled a massive stimulus package to support new home construction across Australia.



The HomeBuilder program offers a $25,000 grant to eligible owner-occupiers, looking to purchase a brand new home or apartment.

Effective immediately, the grant is available to both first home buyers and subsequent home buyers.

In South Australia, first home buyers are able to receive the $15,000 First Home Owner’s Grant, which will now complement the HomeBuilder grant, jack-potting to $40,000 worth of stimulus for eligible first home buyers.

The HomeBuilder grant also opens the door to upgraders and downsizers, as previously state government stimulus has only been available to first home buyers alone.

The HomeBuilder grant applies to properties with a total value of up to $750,000.

Ouwens Casserly Projects Managing Director, Nathan Casserly, highlighted the key benefits of the new stimulus package, particularly for the new-build property market in South Australia.


“With downsizers, upgraders, young families and first home buyers all able to apply for the grant, it means more people will be buying and selling real estate in our state.” said Mr Casserly,

“Perhaps even more relevant, the ability to combine the HomeBuilder grant with the existing First Home Owner’s grant makes home ownership much more attainable for first home buyers aiming to get their foot on the property ladder.”
