Web_xnhotondo1_REFIRST home buyers in Victoria can now take advantage of a $10,000 First Home Owner Grant as well as stamp duty savings of up to 40 per cent.  The State Government’s boost to the grant came into effect on July 1 and has seen a welcome increase from $7000 to $10000 for newly built homes. Designed with the first home buyer in mind, Hotondo Homes’ have developed the Milestone Range in a bid to make it even easier to get into the housing market.

The range consists of eight new affordable designs reflecting the demand for smaller blocks of land. Each of the homes have been cleverly designed to fit a narrow frontage maximising the use of space. Featuring five single storey and three double storey designs, the Milestone Range caters for the full spectrum of first home buyers’ needs, without compromising on practicality and style. One of the new home designs featured in the Milestone Range is the single storey Primo. Standing at just 9.56m wide, the Primo has been well organised to maximise space, incorporating three bedrooms, single car garage and storage throughout.

Hotondo Homes’ general manager Matt Daly believes that given the generous first home buyer grant offered by the Victorian Government, the Milestone designs represent the perfect opportunity to gain a leg up on the property ladder. “Our vision was to create a range that reflected the budgetary and lifestyle requirements of the first home buyer,” Matt said. “We have designed homes that are in line with contemporary style, maximising efficiency and function. I truly believe we have achieved this with the Milestone Range.” To further ease the process, Hotondo Homes has developed three easy steps to owning your first home, to ensure it is a stress-free and fun experience.

Step 2: Land: Builders have relationships with local developers to make sure you receive
the perfect block of land for your first home.
Step 3: Home: It is time to turn your house into a home.
