BARGAIN HOMES: 5 properties under $300K
WITH the HomeBuilder grants being offered to boost construction, now is the perfect time to snap up a 'fixer-upper'.
The grant provides eligible owner-occupiers (including first home buyers) with a grant of $25,000 to build a new home or substantially renovate an existing home.
Alongside existing incentives, such as the First Home Grant, the grant makes buying a home in need of a renovation seem like a good option.
