The Victorian Government’s First Home Owner Grant is a financial incentive that can make your first home more affordable, and give you a quicker, easier way into the property market. You’ll find a basic overview below, but the process to apply for the grant is detailed, so if you want the best result, speak with a home finance professional first.
The grant provides up to $10,000 if the home you’re buying is within Melbourne’s metropolitan area, and up to $20,000 if you choose to buy in regional Victoria. Depending on your unique circumstances, you might also save money through stamp duty exemptions. For the most up-to-date information, visit the State Revenue Office Victoria website.
Generally, first home buyers purchasing a new home in Victoria up to the value of $750,000 can apply for the grant. Visit the State Revenue Office Victoria for detailed criteria and an easy-to-use online tool to check your eligibility.
It’s best to seek advice from a home finance professional before you lodge your application through an approved agent or directly at the State Revenue Office Victoria. We can put you in touch with one of our trusted finance partners, who will step you through the process and help you prepare your documentation ready for lodging.
The grant is usually provided in stages, and when it will be paid will depend on your unique circumstances: how you apply and through whom, and whether you’re building or buying a pre-existing (but still new) home and land package. More information is available on State Revenue Office Victoria’s online First Home Owner Grant lodgement guide.
