Supporting first home buyers looking to build or purchase a new home.
About New Home Guarantee
In the 2021-22 Federal Budget, the Australian Government announced 10,000 places specifically for eligible first home buyers building or purchasing new homes. This scheme is called the New Home Guarantee.
Under the New Home Guarantee, first home buyers can build or purchase a new home, including:
- newly-constructed dwellings
- off-the-plan dwellings
- house and land package
- land and a separate contract to build a new home
Am I eligible?
- You need to be an Australian citizen, at least 18 years old, with a Medicare card, and a first home buyer looking to buy a property that you will live in.
- You need to be able to demonstrate your ability to save over time, with a minimum 5% deposit saved for the property you wish to buy.
- You must meet the income eligibility requirements, which are single buyers earning up to $125,000, or a couple earning up to $200,000 per year.
- There are property price thresholds that will apply in capital cities, large regional centres and regional areas. Use NHFIC's property price threshold tool to work out the maximum property purchase price in the area you're interested in under the Scheme.
