Take advantage of stamp duty relief measures

First home buyers have been urged to take advantage of stamp duty relief measures. 

New figures show 10,496 people have used the exemptions and reductions to buy their first home, in the first quarter since the reforms came into effect.

The housing affordability package announced as part of the June Budget removes stamp duty for first home buyers for both new and existing homes for properties up to $650,000 and reduces duty for first homes between $650,000 and $800,000. 

Goulburn MP Pru Goward wants buyers to take advantage of the package and relief measures available.

“We know this relief package has already opened the door for thousands of home owners across NSW and there’s more to come,” Ms Goward said.

“I urge people who aren’t aware of these reforms and think home ownership is out of reach to take a look at our relief package and get back in the game.

“Our government is focused on cutting the costs of living, whether that’s the price of your child’s weekend sport through the active kids rebate, the energy rebate to help put downward pressure on energy bills or green slip relief.”
