The recent State Government announcement to increase the first home buyers grant for new homes to $10,000 soon after 15th September is a huge bonus for those entering the property market for the first time. Couple this with the stamp duty exemption for properties under $500,000 and this stacks up as a great incentive to leap into the property market now. In addition, an article in the Weekend West on August 26th reported that entry-level buyers are already taking advantage of these conditions by purchasing off-the-plan apartments in established suburbs. With inner city prices out of reach, and house and land packages on the outskirts of Perth being less attractive to these buyers, apartments in inner city suburbs under $500,000 are on the move. And guess what?! Many of our boutique apartments tick all of these boxes! To see if you are eligible for the first home owner’s scheme, contact the Department of Finance on 9262 1299 and then take a look at FUSION and THE MILTON – because now really is the perfect time!
