First Home Owners Grant Is Running Out


The QLD state Government announced an exciting change which will change the lives of many first home buyers.  The existing Great Start Grant has been changed to the First Home Owners Grant (once again!), but that’s not the exciting part.  The best part is that for new building contracts dated after the 1st July 2016 however before the 31st of December 2017, the Grant has been increased to $20,000!  Nope that is not a typo… it really is $20k of free deposit money.  Thank you Government!

How To Create a Budget 


 SAVINGS.  The word can be scary.  Let’s face it; saving a deposit for a home can be really tough.  Between paying rent, car loan commitments, mobile phone and internet bills and a host of other financial obligations, we often find that there isn’t much left to add to our savings each month. Even when we are able to make a contribution to our savings, things seem to come up like car registration and dental bills that can undo all the hard work we’ve done.  Without a solid savings plan it can feel as though we are going around in circles.

What is Soil Testing?


Soil testing (also known as Site Classification) is carried out on your block of land to determine the estimated soil movement due to moisture changes. To test the soil, the engineer drills 3 small diameter bore holes on your block of land which the house will be built on. The engineer takes the soil sample to the lab and tests it for various weather conditions, the outcome of the test provides you with your site class.
