What is the first home owners grant?

The first home owners grant is a scheme available across Australia that provides funds to eligible first home buyers, to help them enter the property market.

The grant differs across the different states and territories and is usually worth between $10,000 to $20,000.

To read more about the different first home owners grants, including how to find out if you’re eligible and how you can apply, read our guide on it here.

You can also use our first home owners grant calculator below.

First home owners grant calculator

You can use our first home owners grant calculator by entering the following information into it:

  • The value of the property
  • The state you’re living in
  • The location of the property
  • The property type (whether it’s an established home, a new home or vacant land)

With this information, the calculator will suggest whether you’re eligible for a grant or not, and how much you could be eligible for. Do keep in mind that this is just a general guide only. The state or territory government will have the ultimate say on whether you qualify for a grant or not.
