Ipswich ranked the quickest FHB path to house ownership in Greater Brisbane: Domain
The quickest path for first time buyers to purchasing a house in Greater Brisbane is Ipswich, according to a report released this week by Domain.
 
 
The report noted first home buyer numbers have risen in Queensland, likely stimulated by the First Home Owners’ Grant, an incentive available for new homes valued under $750,000, providing a first home buyer $20,000.
 
Introduced in 2016, this measure was only meant to last for six months but was extended due to its popularity and as of 1 July, Queensland is set to reduce this grant to $15,000.
