Googong welcomes Federal Government announcement
Googong developers, Peet and Mirvac, have welcomed today’s announcement of the Federal Government’s new HomeBuilder scheme.
The HomeBuilder grant will give Australian home buyers access to a $25,000 grant to go towards the cost of building a new home (including land) up to the value of $750,000, or to assist with renovations of between $150,000 and $750,000.
Effective immediately, HomeBuilder is available to couples with a combined income of less than $200,000 per year and individuals earning less than $125,000 per year, for contracts entered into before 31 December 2020.

Buying your first home?
Today’s HomeBuilder announcement comes as Peet has launched its First Home Buyers Toolkit, an online platform that provides first home buyers with the tools, information and confidence they need to purchase their first home. The toolkit features downloadable guides, expert videos and articles and a check-list that will help any first home buyer to navigate the buying journey.
Buying your first home is one of the biggest events in your life and the process itself can often be daunting. Peet has created its First Home Buyer Toolkit to provide support and guidance to buyers and help make the experience as seamless as possible through five easy-to-follow steps.
