New data released by realestate.com.au reveals that enquiries for new developments have surged since the announcement of the Federal Government’s HomeBuilder scheme in early June.

The REA Insights New Homes Snapshot for July report shows enquiries to developers nationally jumped by almost 63 per cent in the month of June, with land estate enquiries experiencing a 93 per cent lift over the month.

REA Group Executive Manager of Economic Research, Cameron Kusher, said the spike in June followed a bullish 53.9 per cent increase in May, suggesting the announcement of HomeBuilder led to a further surge in the already increasing interest in new properties.

“First home buyer activity increased 28.5 per cent in June when looking specifically at email enquiry on realestate.com.au, and it’s likely some of this activity was a result of the HomeBuilder stimulus announcement,” Kusher said.

“It’s no surprise that land estate new development is benefiting from HomeBuilder given the package is geared towards new builds, there are restrictions on construction timeframes that inhibit apartment development, and the Australian dream is to own a house.”

Dahua Group’s Marketing and Sales Manager, Michael Ching said there has been a notable enquiry increase in the Group’s Tarneit-based development, Orchard which was revealed as Victoria’s most popular house and land development.

“The interest and enquiries on Orchard Tarneit through realestate.com.au have been very strong over the last few months. As a maturing estate, Orchard Tarneit has a variety of land lots to offer including titled lots which fit perfectly into the HomeBuilder scheme,” Michael said.

“The announcement of the HomeBuilder scheme saw enquiries in Orchard Tarneit increase by 200% in June as compared to enquiries recorded in May. As a result, we have released more land lots to cater to the increased demand.”
