First homes

House and land from $266* p/w

Ready to call it quits on your landlord?

Did you know you can get into your first home for just $266 p/w? And yes, that’s for both house and land. Imagine owning your own house for less than the rent on your tiny place (ya know, the one with things growing on the walls…). And if you’re not currently renting – that means you’re probably living with your parents, so it’s still a BIG win.

3 steps to building

We know what a brain-melt first home buying can be (kind of like the time you tried to understand Interstellar). So, instead of overwhelming you with blueprints, numbers, and fast-talking salespeople, we keep things simple – giving you more time to learn the names of the staff at Bunnings.

Here’s how we do it.

Finance smarts

First up, dollar bills. We’ve got in-house finance nerds who can help tailor a loan to suit your situation – so don’t panic if you’ve given in to a few ASOS online sales recently! You won’t need $40k to get started, we’ll help you access low deposit home loans that get you into the house while you’re young enough to pull off a TikTok dance challenge. Let’s see if you qualify!

Second up, coffee. Well, sorta. Having your fave brunch spot nearby is just as important as what house you’re in. So, if the thought of getting Macca’s coffee every morning depresses you, let us know! Give us a clear picture of what you’re after, and we’ll create the perfect house and land package that’ll tick all your boxes.

Design smarts

Lastly, let’s talk dream pads. Are you downsizing (less to clean, more to love), upsizing (get ready for a Masterchef-style kitchen!), or just treating yourself to a place without rent inspections? What design makes you want to grab your phone and take insta pics? Just let us know, and we’ll create a home that’s all you.

Spending all your holiday fund on rent?
Why not buy for less.

A house and land package could be your saviour. Basically, it’s a package deal where you get a block from a developer and a you-beaut home from us, the builder, all in one. It’s like if you could magically get all your streaming services in one place… You’ll know all the costs from the start, and you only need one loan!

We’ve got pre-made house and land packages for you to look through, but don’t stress if they don’t fit your mental image, we can make one that includes space for that room dedicated to FIFA – whatever you need.

Your VIP access to the perfect loan

We know one size doesn’t fit all. Get your mind out of the gutter, we’re talking about financing a new home! And because we know that everyone has different needs, we have different finance solutions that can work for you, your situation, and your new home. We’ve lined them up for you to compare.
