Applications now open for $25,000 HomeBuilder grant in all states

Aug 13, 2020

It’s been two months since HomeBuilder was first announced, and I’m sure many of us spent a bit of that time dreaming about an extra $25,000 to spend on a reno or new home. The good news is grant applications are now officially open.

All states have now opened application channels (see below) for the federal government’s new HomeBuilder grants, with ACT the only government yet to provide an application form (however you can register online).

Back up, what’s the $25,000 HomeBuilder scheme?

The federal government scheme aims to assist Australians who want to buy a new home or begin work on eligible renovations by providing them with a $25,000 tax-free grant.

The scheme was announced as part of the federal government’s economic response to the coronavirus pandemic, with the stated aim of supporting more than 1 million builders, painters, plumbers and electricians across the country.

While many of the eligibility details were quickly revealed, there has been one key problem since the announcement of the scheme back in early June: there has been no way of actually applying for a grant.

But, there is now.

Here’s how to apply for a HomeBuilder grant in each state

Cindy is amazing. She went above and beyond and then went further than that. We have come a long way with her over the past 7 or so years, and she has become like a member of our family. She always ensured that we got the best interest rates and value for money. She stepped in to save a transaction at settlement to ensure we did not lose the house we purchased by spending hours on the phone to ensure everything went through without a hitch. We cannot fault this amazing lady and hope to continue our working and personal relationship with her😊

I can not thank Cindy enough for her help over the last 2-3 months. Myself and my partner have been able to purchase our dream first family home because of her. Not only is she upmost professional but she also makes you feel so comfortable when you need to contact her with any questions( and I had a lot). The dedication that she puts in to her work and relationships with clients is nothing but admirable. Thanks so much again Cindy, we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Cindy was an absolutely pleasure to deal with. This was my first home loan and I was pretty naive to how it all works. Cindy put up with my late night emails and calls answering all my questions and never once made me feel like an annoyance. I felt supported throughout the whole process and really felt as if Cindy had my back. Cindy came highly recommended to me through my Aunty and she did not disappoint. I’ve now recommended her to friends who have also had nothing but a seamless experience with her. 10/10. Thanks Cindy! You’re an absolute legend.

Cindy is hands down the best in the business!
She assisted us with our first ever investment properties and she explained absolutely everything we needed to know. If there was anything we didn’t fully understand she would go over and over again until we did. Cindy is very knowledgeable and professional and by the end of your dealings she will feel like a friend to you. Cindy has also assisted my son with finance in purchasing a home and we have absolute confidence in recommending Cindy to any family or friends we know.

We were referred to Cindy by a member of the family, and it was the best thing that we have been advised to do. Would like to thank you for all the advice, support, encouragement and simpleness in making the change so easy. Thank you Cindy.

Absolute legend in finance, Cindy is more than a leading source, she takes the time to comfortably get to know you and your financial circumstances and needs then looks for a solution.  She sources what is the best option. Even if you are having trouble raising finance from the big 4 banks, Cindy is well networked in the Industry and has many gateway options to assist. We highly, highly, highly recommend Cindy and N2N, great service with results.
