Planning To Buy A New Home? Try These First Steps…


When it comes time to look into building your new home, the last things you need is to feel like you don’t have all the information necessary to make good decisions.

Although you may not be in the market to build your new home at the moment, now is a really good time to familiarise yourself with what is available to you in terms of land, as well as getting some initial costings from your Local Builder to help you with the finance side of things – such as establishing your pre-approval amount.

This is extremely beneficial as this will help you establish an achievable budget as well as it then allows us to point you in the right direction for what location and designs will work best.


With so many different choices available to purchasers, it can be a daunting process trying to work out what it is that you may require. At Stroud Homes Toowoomba our Team is able to talk you through the process and help you make the right decisions based on your circumstances.

At Stroud Homes we have many options on how to take the first step to building your home, whether it be finding the land, providing you with a fixed quote or even customising your plans.


Keeping up to date with what is on offer and the benefits of building can help you make the most informed decision when the time is right for you to get started on your new home. A few key points to keep an eye out for are:

  • The First Home Buyers Grant started on the 1st of July 2016, which was recently increased by another $5,000 until the 1st of July 2017. To receive this you must have Build Contracts dated before July 2017.
  • Leading Economists advise that Australia’s record low interest rates will continue to stay low for a long time.
  • In Queensland all home buyers receive stamp duty concessions, however the First Home Buyers receive additional discounts on properties valued up to $550,000.

Feel free to get in touch with us when the time is right.
