Federal and State Grants of uptown $55k

A perfect time to buy

Now is the perfect time to buy a new house and land package, with the Federal Government’s recent announcement offering stimulus grants for new home buyers.

The Corona virus has presented challenges for many of us, however for those who have a secure job and their finances organised, right now is a great time to buy, particularly if you are a first home buyer.

When all your friends tell you it’s the right time or when the media tells you it’s time, this can sometimes mean you’re driven by FOMO (fear of missing out) which çan mean the property you buy is over-priced or possibly not really right for you…but there has neverbefore been a time like this when as a first home buyer you may be eligible for several grants totalling $55k,
