Photographer: Liam Kidston.“In the next two weeks we will release a new stage at Kinross in the Redlands, a new estate at Griffin to the north of Brisbane and another at Pallara in the west,” he said.“Ausbuild would love to see the First Home Owners Grant extended. The wide-ranging benefits boost everything from employment to manufacturing, trades and business – while achieving the ultimate goal of helping Queenslanders into their own home sooner.” The $20,000 grant was extended in December last year for another six months – a key election promise.Treasury figures show that 2872 applications were received between January 1 and April 30.A total of 15,313 applications have been received since the grant was boosted to $20,000 on July 1, 2016.Deputy premier and treasurer Jackie Trad noted the grant had helped people get into their first home sooner, and its role in stimulating jobs and the economy, but gave no indication that it would be extended again.

Developers, builders and industry stakeholders are calling on the Queensland Government and treasurer Jackie Trad to further extend the First Home Owners Grant.Industry stakeholders are now calling on the Queensland Government to further extend the $20,000 grant deadline, saying they had seen a spike in sales inquiries.Frasers Property Australia residential Queensland general manager Cameron Leggatt said over 50 per cent of the sales at their Brookhaven development had been to first home buyers, with lots at its Hillside Release 2 selling from $170,000.Developer Peet Limited will also unveil its first turnkey homes in Queensland this weekend, with prices from $399,000 – well below the $750,000 grant cut-off.Master Builders and the Real Estate Institute of Queensland are also calling for the grant to be extended.“The latest ABS Building Approvals data show approvals for detached houses are continuing to grow – up 7.6 per cent over the year,” Master Builders deputy CEO Paul Bidwell said. “Since the FHOG was increased from $15,000 to $20,000 in July 2016, investment in the property market has been in a strong, upwards trajectory. “Now is not the time to upset the apple cart by removing or reducing the First Home Owner Grant.” REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said the majority of grants had been taken up by young people in the southeast, noting a 25 per cent increase in the number of grants processed after it was lifted from $15,000 in 2016 to $20,000 in 2017.
