Live your dream
Orbit Homes are the first home buyer specialists
Buying your first home can be filled with so many emotions, the excitement of finally having a place to call your own, anticipation about how the home will reflect your individual style, and also sometimes there can be fear of the unknown.
The Victorian First Home Owner Grant is a government initiative put in place so that making a start in the property market is accessible and affordable. Victorians buying or building their first home, up to a value of $750,000, may be eligible for a $10,000 grant in metropolitan areas and regional zones. In addition, there is a one-off first home buyer duty exemption or concession.
You can check your eligibility on the State Revenue Office website and complete the checklist questions. Our sales specialists will guide you through the whole process including working out your budget, navigating the grant and finance process, finding your dream home and becoming a home owner.
At Orbit Homes we believe in keeping our building process simple and easy-to-follow. Speak to our sales team for a guided tour through the first home buyer journey with Orbit.
