LET YOUR HOME BECOME YOUR FIRST INVESTMENT.
Why do we want to help?
We understand what you go through, from posting to deployments and everything in between. Brendon, our point of contact for Ross River Estate has been where you are. In 2010 after 6 years service within 1 RAR, Brendon left and joined the property industry. He has been working with Ross River Estate since the beginning and has helped many defence first home buyers take their first step onto the property ladder. After having personally been there and bought whilst serving, plus helping many more defence buyers, there is nowhere better for you to visit than Ross River Estate.
Some of your possible benefits
There are many possible benefits that you may be entitled to. Listed below are some of the more common options, knowing how and when to use them or to get the most out of tax or your Defence loan assistance is where we can help.
First Home Buyers Grant (Queensland Government ‘Great Start Grant’) – $15,000 tax free – from 01 July 2018
Defence purchase grants – approximately $16,949 before tax (Paid tax free if overseas).
Defence Loan assistance – Hundreds of dollars off your loan each month. (lump sums may be available)
All of our homes are 3 or 4 bedrooms with ensuite to the main, double garage and plenty of room throughout. This means you will have plenty of room to have friends or boarders move in and help pay off your loan faster.
What happens when you are posted?
Townsville rental returns are some of the best in the state. With vacancy rates in modern lowest homes now below 3%, therefore returns are increasing. Using your Defence assistance and your rental return our homes will likely pay themselves off with no out of pocket expense to you once you are posted.
