It was back in July 2016 when the Queensland State Government made an extra $5,000 commitment to first home buyers. The increased incentive was rolled out to offer support for both the building industry and gift additional funding for those embarking on their home-owning journey.


Fast forward almost a year, and the $20,000 funding incentive is nearing its expiration date of 30th June 2017. Have you made the most of, what is essentially, free money yet?


The basic rules for the $20,000 Queensland First Home Owners’ Grant are:


  • A contract to purchase or build must be signed and finalised by 30 June 2017
  • You must be building or buying a brand-new home, to a value of no greater than $750,000
  • You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident (or on the application with someone who meets this criteria)
  • You must be 18 years of age or older
