The HomeBuilder Program Has Been Extended

If you’ve read our previous posts on the Government’s HomeBuilder Scheme, you’ll know what it is and that it was due to end soon. In response to COVID-19 and the current economic status, the Government has extended the grant’s cut-off date – great news for homeowners across the country!

The grant can greatly aid owner-occupants in buying a brand new-house, off-the-plan property or renovating a large portion of their existing home. Not only is it a significant amount of money for successful applicants, but it also stimulates activity in the construction industry and stabilises jobs for hard-working Aussies.

The New Scheme End Date

As mentioned in one of our previous posts, the HomeBuilder Grant was due to end in December 2020. But on 29 November 2020, the Government announced an extension and an end date of 31 March 2021. So, there’s still time to find out if you fit the criteria for the HomeBuilder Scheme (read the eligibility criteria here) and you can apply for it online. It’s a great opportunity for those who weren’t ready to make a purchase in 2020 but want 2021 to be their lucky year.

Changes & Updates To The HomeBuilder Scheme

With the new end date has come a few other amendments. Amongst the changes are the grant amounts. If you have signed a contract between 4 June 2020 and 31 December 2020, the grant amount is $25,000. If you sign a contract between 1 January 2021 and 31 March 2021, the grant amount is $15,000. So, if you missed out last year, there’s still a chance to apply and receive funding to go toward your property.

The grant numbers aren’t the only figures that have changed – there is an updated and increased new build gap too. Previously, a new build could not exceed $750,000 to be eligible for the grant, but now the property value of a new build cannot exceed $950,000. The jump in value means that there’s more opportunity and flexibility in where to build while still being in the pool of eligibility.

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -
