Tasmanian home grown bank, MyState, is delighted to be helping more first home buyers take advantage of new financial initiatives – and our customers agree – with MyState Bank being recognised with Mozo’s ‘Expert’s Choice Award’ in the ‘First Home Buyer Loan’ category.
One of Australia’s fastest-growing lenders, MyState Bank is helping buyers receive the financial support they need to get a foot in the door.
Earlier this year, the Tasmanian state government released a new 10-year $1.5 billion-plus housing package, which builds on existing initiatives to make owning a home more affordable.
Under the new package, first home owners who purchase a property that costs $600,000 or less will be able to fully access stamp duty concessions and the First Home Owner Grant. This reflects an increase on the previous $300,000 threshold, and acknowledges recent increases in property prices.
With these new Tasmanian state government provisions, eligible first home buyers and pensioners who are downsizing their family home could save around $11,250 on property duty when they buy a $600,000 home.
Additionally, the Tasmanian state government has confirmed the First Home Owner Grant will remain at up to $30,000 for the 2022/2023 financial year.
“These are big changes in favour of the Apple Isle’s growing number of first home buyers. MyState Bank is here to help you understand how to access government bonuses and incentives, as well as walk you through the home loan process and beyond,” said MyState General Manager Banking, Huw Bough.
“We’re here to make one of the most important steps you can take to build your wealth as easy as possible,” he added.
