Firstly, it is vital that you get your contract (both for your land and with your chosen builder) signed ASAP in order to be eligible for the $20,000! The Grant ENDS on December 31st so if you are wanting to buy, please get in quick and make sure you check your eligibility.
Eligible recipients must be:
– at least 18 years old and an Australian Citizen or permanent resident
– purchasing a new property under $750,000
–– receiving the grant for the first time

If you’re unsure about whether a new build is for you make sure you visit as many homes as possible to get an idea of what you need. Building a new home in a masterplanned development like North Harbour is a great way to use the First Home Buyers Grant to its full potential. North Harbour ticks all the boxes for a great investment in your future – excellent location and local amenities, 1,000 acres of open space and parklands and plenty of free local events.
Located between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, North Harbour also offers great highway access, the fastest broadband speed in Australia and reticulated gas to each home.
The northside of Brisbane is growing at a rapid rate and our suburb of Burpengary East is benefitting from a lot of excellent local planning. We’ve got everything on our doorstep: a medical centre and shops at the Hub (2 minutes away), a brand-new shopping centre (including Kmart and Woolies) at Burpengary, plus Aldi and Coles and a variety of great places to shop and eat five minutes away, a wide selection of global stores such as Costco and IKEA 10-15 minutes away, a new university campus arriving in 2020 at Petrie (20-25 minutes away) and regular road and transport upgrades offering employment and excellent local amenities. North Harbour gives First Home Buyers an amazing opportunity to move into a brand-new home in an excellent location for a great price rather than focussing on older houses for sale which may need additional work after purchase.
Why build? Well building your first home means you can get exactly what you need from the start of your home owning journey. No need to spend on renovations or competing against other buyers – just choose your house and land package and get ready to move into the northside’s best new development. There are lots of designs to choose from, as you’ll see from our Display Village of 35 homes, with a lot of exciting styles and layouts on offer.
We appreciate that buying your first home can be a difficult and overwhelming process, so we aim to make it as painless as possible for you. Our sales team is on site 7 days a week, 10am-5pm and we’re happy to answer any questions you have and walk you through the process step-by-step. We have a coffee machine and bottled water to restore you after you’ve viewed the many show homes on offer, there’s plenty of space to sit and discuss options and even a place for kids to play while you have a chat. We’ve also put together a special web page for First Home Buyers complete with mortgage calculator and house and land packages geared towards first home owners, here.
When you’re looking to buy we suggest a few visits to our Display Village and Sales Centre armed with a list of your “must-haves”, “would-likes” and “absolutely-nots” firmly in your mind. If you’re not sure what you’re after, have a read of this great guide which might help crystallise your thinking.
We have 35 Display Homes in our Display Village from 14 local and national builders: Metricon, McLachlan, McDonald Jones, Stylemaster, Hallmark, Integra, Homes by CMA, Bold, Simonds, Coral, Pantha, Valeco, Sunvista and GJ Gardner.
$500 for Referrals
And, don’t forget, our new referrals scheme which is aimed at encouraging our residents to refer their friends and family to join them in our beautiful neighbourhood. Residents are encouraged to fill in a referral form for any friend or family member they would like to invite to buy a home at North Harbour. We have lots of families and friends living in our growing community who love it so much they keep encouraging everyone to move to North Harbour so we thought we should say thanks!
Every resident who refers a friend or family member who ends up buying at North Harbour will receive a $500 gift card and their friend or family member will also receive one as a thank you from us.
