This Hub is a collection of resources designed by Move Homes to help first home buyers of house and land packages in Perth navigate through everything they need to know about building or owning a new property in the region!
It is no secret that WA Homes have a relaxed and happy vibe due to the lifestyle in the region. As such, many are moving to this side of the country and building new homes. Are you planning to buy land in Perth and build a new home but don’t know where to start? You’ve come to the right place! Move Homes have House and Land Packages available for First Home Buyers wishing to settle down in Perth. We have the team and the resources to assist you in this new move to becoming property owners in Western Australia.
The resources on this page include everything you need to know – from start to finish. We want to educate people, especially first time home buyers so that they can enter the market confidently and move into their new homes as fast as possible. We’re passionate about helping Perth families and individuals build their first property, so check out our advice and don’t hesitate to send us a message if you have any questions.
Finding out your borrowing capacity might not sound interesting, but it helps you understand what you can afford. This is incredibly important for first time home buyers, especially since this can determine what type of property you can build or purchase at this moment. At Move Homes, our finance team will match you with a home loan that suits your budget completely free of charge! We can also assist with determining if you are eligible for the First Home Owners Grant (FHOG), First Home Guarantee Scheme (previously known as the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme), Keystart (or other additional government assistance) and the Home of My Own Foundation.
As a proud member of The Prime Group, Move Homes has access to exclusive land developments and bulk purchasing power, enabling us to offer good house and land packages in the best land estates in Perth for competitive prices! At the moment, Perth has over 150 established and new land estates and many unknown jewels within the region. With access to these exclusive lands, we can help first time home buyers find the perfect home and land package for their families. Move Homes can set you up and build from anywhere starting from Two Rocks down to Dawesville. If you’ve already got a particular suburb in mind, let us know so that we can secure your location.
Looking for a place to grow your family? You’ve come to the right place! Move Homes just added new home designs to our existing collection! We have designs suitable for all Perth block shapes and sizes, especially those looking for house and land packages within the most popular land sizes across Perth – like the 12.5 x 30m and 10.5 x 25m blocks. We also have customisable options for all ranges of budgets and have provided different plans for various types of families (single, with children, retirees, etc), such as adding more sculleries, having 5 beds and a rear main bedroom in our new house plans. Our vast range of home designs offers affordable, desirable and lively solutions for each new Perth home buyer!
Move Homes have developed a compilation of free resources to help you with building your first home in Perth. Our blogs and resource guides explore everything you need to know about being a first-time home buyer including what Keystart is, what are the best saving practices based on your income and lifestyle and which are the best suburbs to build a property in Perth.

While very exciting, being a first time home buyer is often confusing – with different sources pointing to different requirements. To ease your process, be sure to check out our list of frequently asked questions from other first home buyers of house and land packages in Perth. Otherwise, please feel free to contact our team of new home consultants for answers to any of your questions!
You can build a home with a $0 deposit thanks to the Home of My Own Foundation. There are also initiatives like Keystart and the First Home Guarantee Scheme (formerly known as the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme) that were created to help individuals and families in Perth to stop renting and instead build their dream homes.
Buying established or building new homes in Perth both have their own set of advantages, but there are three dominant reasons our past clients have chosen to build. Firstly, they can design their new home exactly how they want. Secondly, some have looked at the established market and never found their dream home (which goes back to the first point). And thirdly, you need less savings to get into a brand new home with the First Home Owners Grant, Keystart, and other finance options available.
A house and land package consists of two contracts: the house and the land. With the house, that is done through Move Homes and includes your home design and any variations you choose to suit your style. It also includes your siteworks fee, which is something many other builders don’t tell you about when you begin your journey. Your land contract is between you and the owner of your block, such as a land developer in a new estate. Though, at Move Homes, we have our own land estates that you can choose from. You can check out our blog for more info about what’s involved.
Not necessarily. The cost of your home depends on its size as well as the amenities you want to have, regardless of whether it’s one of our standard designs or a custom one.
75% of our clients come from word-of-mouth and this makes us very unique. We’re involved in local communities which gives us an advantage of helping our clients looking for their first home or their next home in Perth. Plus, we’re a part of The Prime Group so we are in a strong financial position to acquire the best land in Perth and across Western Australia. You can read what else makes us special here.
