With the federal HomeBuilder Grant extension to end on March 31, now may be your last chance to save on your brand-new apartment or townhouse purchase.

HomeBuilder provides eligible owner-occupiers, including first home buyers, with a $15,000 grant to purchase a new build or off-the-plan dwelling.

The current government incentives mean that, for many first home buyers, it is cheaper to own than to rent.

However, Melbourne’s property market will not stay this way for long, with an upswing anticipated this year as investor interest rises.

“Right now, first home buyers should be looking to take advantage of all the government grants and concessions while they can”, Cedar Woods’ COO Patrick Archer said.

If you’re looking to cash in on the competitive offers and grants available for only a limited amount of time, here are ten Melbourne residences eligible for the $15,000 HomeBuilder Grant.
