The Queensland First Home Owners' Grant is a state government initiative to help first home owners to get their new first home sooner. Depending on the date of your contract, you’ll get $15,000 or $20,000 towards buying or building your new house, unit or townhouse (valued at less than $750,000). You can even buy off the plan or choose to build yourself. It’s a great opportunity to buy or build a new home in our great state.

Eight tips for first home buyers

Boost your confidence and your home loan know-how with the following eight tips:

1. Consider a mortgage broker. A mortgage broker is there to help you find the right home loan for your situation. Since this is your first home loan, a mortgage broker can show you the ropes and explain all the features available.
2. Plan your budget. There is nothing more important when contemplating buying your first home than planning a workable budget and sticking to it, as well as continuing with a revised edition once you have successfully pocketed the keys. It will be through sticking to a budget that you'll get a clear picture of the home loan you can afford.
3. Know your limitations. Whatever you do, do not buy what you can't afford. It's easy to convince yourself that you'll only have to struggle for a couple of years and that everything will be alright once that big promotion comes along. What if something were to happen in the meantime, or the promotion never came? You could stand to lose everything, and you will not have the benefit of the First Home Owner Grant or any other first home buyer incentives the second time around.
4. Save the biggest deposit that you can put together. Saving a deposit will help you in two ways. First, it will show your potential lender that you can exercise financial discipline over a period of time. Secondly, the bigger the deposit the larger the equity you have in your property right from the start. This means you will pay less interest. One of the best ways to save your deposit may be to take out a high interest savings account.
5. Apply for the First Home Owner Grant early. The most appropriate time to apply for the First Home Owner Grant is at the same time you apply for your home loan. You can lodge your grant application through most lenders, if they are an authorised agent and able to receive it. If you do this it will be processed faster than if you send it directly to your relevant State or Territory Revenue Office, the government authority that administers it. In most cases the grant will be processed by the time of settlement or, if you are building, by the time your lender will be paying over the first scheduled construction loan payment. If you miss out, you will still have 12 months from settlement, or from the completion of the building, to apply. Even then, in special circumstances, the commissioner can further extend this time limit.
6. Rid yourself of excess debt. Do not make the mistake of applying for your first home loan while you are carrying excessive debt. Do away with any credit cards you don't really need, finish off your car payments and pay down any personal loans. Make your home loan your top priority.
7. Be a cynical buyer. Do not necessarily believe all you are told. Make sure you carry out thorough building and pest inspections and find out what prices similar houses are selling for in the same locality. If you do your research properly you should be pretty right.
8. Make certain you receive all that you are eligible to receive. The various state and territory governments also offer their own incentives to first home buyers in the way of grants. Most states also give generous concessions off the costs of stamp duty imposts. Make sure you know what is available in the locality you are buying your first home.
