If you are considering having your new home built in Perth, you’re probably aware of what house and land packages are and how the First Home Buyers Grant (also called the First Home Owners Grant or FHOG) helps make a property more affordable. This government-supported source of funding can give you more financial breathing room, provided you are eligible.
The FHOG was initiated by the Federal Government to help offset the effect of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), which first home buyers in Perth and in other states have to pay when purchasing a previously owned residence or building one from scratch.
In any construction project, balancing considerations such as budget, time, and aesthetics can be a challenge. When building a new house, therefore, be sure to include environmental considerations in your plans and preparations. The products used to build, furnish, clean, and enhance your home must be a part of the greening process.
Why go green, you may ask? Thanks to more efficient materials and systems, you can enjoy lower utility bills today and higher resale values later. Likewise, you can contribute to global sustainability efforts that yield long-term economic benefits.
