First Home Buyers – it’s time to get excited!

First Home Buyers are rejoicing at the recent announcement from the Australian Government.

The Treasury has expanded the property price caps for homes purchased under the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme and Family Home Guarantee, which apply from 1st July 2021.

A total of 30,000 places will be made available under the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme range of schemes in the new financial year.

As of 1st July, 10,000 additional places will be available for the 2021-22 financial year under each of the FHLDS, the New Home Guarantee and the Family Home Guarantee initiatives.

New Property Price Caps

In response to criticism that caps were too low in some cities, from 1st July 2021, the FHLDS and Family Home Guarantee will operate under new property price caps.

New price caps are as follows:

The capital city price thresholds apply to regional centres with a population over 250,000, “recognising that dwellings in regional centres can be more expensive than other regional areas”.

Regional centres include: Newcastle and Lake Macquarie; Illawarra (Wollongong); Geelong; Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
