Tips and Advice, Services

If you have been thinking about building or renovating, then this is the opportunity you have been waiting for.

The key to any successful renovation or new home build is a great design; a bespoke design that understands and conforms to your lifestyle needs.

What if I told you that you could have that design created and it wasn’t going to cost you a cent?

Well, thanks to the governments newly announced $688 million “HomeBuilder” scheme, you can have just that.

PROJECT EXAMPLE: Hawthorne Home Renovation

The HomeBuilder scheme explained

The HomeBuilder scheme will fund grants worth $25,000. To be eligible to receive a grant, applicants must earn less than $125,000 a year for an individual, or less than $200,000 combined income for a couple.

The scheme is available for new home builds up to $750,000, or significant renovations between $150,000 and $750,000. For renovations there is a further stipulation that the property is valued at less than $1.5 million.

PROJECT EXAMPLE: Seventeen Mile Rocks Renovation

The aim of the scheme is to boost the building sector. It’s important to note that the scheme doesn’t extend to investment properties. The grants are also not available for anyone who intends on doing the work themselves without the help of builders.

Renovation work does not include items such as swimming pools, sheds, or anything else that is separate to the main property.

How can this help you get the ultimate architectural design for your home?

The grant extends to home design as well. This is crucially important to your investment.

Some people will put the design of their renovation, or new home, in the hands of building designers or drafts people, resulting in poor design outcomes that inhibit, rather than enhance, their lifestyles. Poor designs result in poor returns on investment further down the track.

PROJECT EXAMPLE: Indooroopilly Home Renovation

Remember, you will be investing a significant amount of your own money in your project. Skimping on the design phase could well be disastrous. But you don’t need to, thanks to the Home Builder scheme.

Thanks to this initiative you can invest in getting the perfect tailored design for your home.

PROJECT EXAMPLE: Ascot Renovation

The perfect time to create your dream home

In announcing the HomeBuilder scheme, Prime Minister Scott Morrison observed: “If you’ve been putting off that renovation or new build, the extra $25,000 we’re putting on the table along with record low interest rates means now’s the time to get started.”

But record low interest rates are only part of the story, with the building market quoting competitively in terms of labour and materials.

PROJECT EXAMPLE: Alderley Home Renovation

If you decide not to act now then you run the risk of not only missing out on $25,000 that you will probably never see offered again, but you also run the risk of starting your project as costs and prices start to rebound.

There really has never been a better time to get started on your project.

PROJECT EXAMPLE: Northlakes Renovation

But don’t fall into the trap of running out and speaking with builders. The time for discussions with builders and tradespeople is AFTER you get the perfect design for your home.
