GREAT NEWS FOR FIRST HOME BUYERS IN BALLARAT! First home buyers building new homes in Regional Victoria will be entitled to $20,000 as of July 1 this year, up from $10,000 for new homes valued up to $750,000. The grant will be applicable to contracts signed from 1 July 2017. Treasurer Tim Pallas said he expected the new grant would increase buyer interest in regional cities like Ballarat and promote decentralisation by drawing young people out of the state’s congested capital.
