What is the ‘FHOG’?

It is a State Government initiative that, if you are eligible as a first home buyer, is available when purchasing your first home in Queensland, known as The Queensland First Home Owners’ Grant.

The FHOG is designed to make it easier for first home buyers to enter the property market. As eligible buyers, you can have access to a grant of $15,000 towards the purchase of your first home.

How much is the First Home Owners Grant?

The current amount, as of 1st July, 2018, is $15,000. However, if you have a contract that is signed between 1st July, 2016 and the 30th June, 2018, there is a grant of $20,000 that you may be eligible to apply for.

Am I eligible for the First Home Owner Grant?

The Qld Government has a criteria or list of eligibility:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age.
  • You must be an Australian Citizen or permanent resident (or applying with someone who is).
  • You must not have previously owned property in Australia that you lived in.
  • You must be buying or building a brand-new home.
  • The value of the home including the land is less than $750,000.
  • You must move into the new home as your principal place of residence within 1 year of the completed transaction and live there continuously for 6 months.

The Qld Government has also provided a free eligibility test. This will quickly help you determine whether you are eligible for the FHOG.
