The Federal Government’s First Home Lean Deposit Scheme has come into effect!
The scheme aims to help eligible first home buyers on low and middle incomes gain a foothold in the property market. They now only need to have a minimum 5% deposit and won’t be charged Lenders Mortgage Insurance, with the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC) providing a guarantee for the rest!
The announcement means you may not require as big a deposit as you first thought. Hurry, there's only 7,000 spaces left this year! Check out if you're eligible below.
The wet weather this Halloween certainly didn't stop trick or treaters from celebrating the spooky spirit with over 1,000 people coming along to the Thrillage at Wellard Scare House in Wellard Square.
The Scare House featured a variety of spooky favourites such as Harry Potter, Stranger Things and IT, with a number of themed rooms for fellow tricksters to navigate through, and even an electric chair which lit up when people sat on it! Wellard Square was full of screams and laughter as families and friends from around Wellard got together to celebrate the spooky season.
A huge thank you to residents Matt and Claire as well as all the volunteers who made this fantastic event happen!
