This month the WA State Government announced that it would be slashing the First Home Owners Grant on established properties from $7,000 to just $3,000. Approximately 70% of first home buyers purchase an established property as their first home which means that many people will be $4,000 worse off when the new measures kick in on 15th September 2013.

If you’ve been thinking about buying your first home, it would be a wise idea to bring that purchase forward in order to receive the full $7,000 grant. We suggest you approach your finance broker or lender and have your pre-approval ready to make an offer before September 15th. Any offers to purchase that are accepted after this date will see eligible first home buyers $4,000 out of pocket.

Mandurah is an excellent location for first home buyers to take their first step onto the property ladder. It has an abundance of affordable property in a waterside location with easy access to Perth via the rail link. H&N Perry currently have over 20 listings for properties under $400,000 that would be ideal for first home buyers. These properties range from 4 bedroom houses through to duplexes and units.
