Build grant stimulates activity FIRST-HOME ACTION STARTS

Date: 25 September 2013
Local real estate agents say the new-home builder’s grant and large pockets of land becoming available has led to a 24 per cent increase in applications to build homes in the Tea Tree Gully district.

Council figures show 209 applications were lodged last financial year, up from 134 during 2011-2012.

Burton Grove First National director Russell Burton said the introduction of an $8500 State Government grant for first home builders in October had contributed to the boost in applications.

“Because people aren’t sure how long the grants will be available, as it can always change, first-home buyers are taking advantage of it while it lasts.” Mr Burton said, adding the incentive made a big difference.

“(Golden Grove) is a popular area and people are certainly taking advantage of blocks when they become available.”
