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 buyers in Perth 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! Further, we can assist with determining if you are eligible for the First Home Owners Grant (FHOG), First Home Loan Deposit Scheme, Keystart (or other additional government assistance) and the Home of My Own Foundation.

Otherwise, please feel free contact our team of new home consultants for answers to any of your questions!
It can be confusing trying to get a straight answer to this question, because there are sources that say you need to have a 20% deposit. But that’s not correct. 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 Loan Deposit Scheme that were created to help first home buyers in Perth stop renting and instead build their dream home.
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.
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.
Over the last 50 years we have proudly built over 15,000 homes for Australian families. We have the same values today as we did in 1969 when we built our first home in Light Street Dianella.
Our commitment is to provide you with complete transparency and give you a real understanding of all aspects of your home loan.
