Paying rent, covering the bills, and keeping up with general living expenses is hard for the everyday Aussie. Anyone aspiring to own their home soon realise that it’s either extremely difficult or impossible.
We’re changing that.
We provide up to 100% of your deposit when you couple our $15,000 contribution with the First Home Owners Grant and now an extra $25,000 from the HomeBuilder Scheme. Our mission is for every Aussie to own a home by breaking down the barriers to homeownership and want to help you escape the rent trap.
I found first home hero really easy to deal with. They were really helpful and made it not complicated at all to find what we wanted. Prior to them we went to other companies and I always felt like they were pushing me to get whatever it was more convenient for them not giving me any choices at all, but with first home hero from day one, they tried to work around our needs and were able to offer us exactly what we were looking for and more importantly, at affordable price within our budget, which made the whole experience just great. I would definitely recommend first home hero to my friends and family especially when you don’t know where to start, the agent that helped us was experienced and was able to talk us through the whole process, after our first meeting with him we were sure that we wanted to sign up with them just because it felt so easy to get into our first house with their help. After we were approved, it took about 16 weeks for our house to be built, we were able to track the building process through their construction portal which it was awesome as I never had to be calling them up to see what they were up to. What I love the most about our house is that it looks so modern and stylish and also the location, it’s close to shops, schools and public transportation. We are very happy with our house. Thank you first home hero.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is my First Home Hero Manager?
Your First Home Hero Manager is the first person you speak to after filling out the online form. They will explain everything from getting your deposit, applying for finance, choosing house and land and will be with you throughout the entire process.
Do I need a deposit?
Getting a loan from any bank means that you will require a deposit; however when you couple your $15,000 Government First Home Owners Grant with the First Home Hero contribution, you automatically unlock $30,000 for you to use as a deposit.
First Home Hero helps you through the deposit barrier to make is easy for Aussies to get their foot in the property market and escape the rent trap.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible to receive the $15,000 contribution from First Home Hero, you simply need to be able to service a mortgage. That means having things like a good credit rating, a stable job and paying your bills on time. Basically, if a bank can look at your current financial situation and be sure you can meet the mortgage repayments – then you are eligible.
One other eligibility criteria is that you can only use your $15,000 contribution toward a First Home Hero House and Land Package.
How do I choose a House and Land Package?
Your First Home Manager will find out where you want to live and find a suitable block and house design to fit your budget. You tell us what you like and where you want to live and we’ll find the perfect fit.
What if this isn’t my first home?
If you’ve owned a home before – that’s fine too. You’ll still get your $15,000 contribution from First Home Hero, but you won’t be eligible for the Government First Home Owners Grant.
