"Right now we are seeing the strongest conditions for first home buyers we have seen in a long time. Housing finance figures show lending to this group is at its highest level in seven years, driven by renewed first home buyer incentives, fewer investors and calmer prices. In this presentation, Nerida will speak about why it makes sense to buy a home, the types of properties that are worth having a look at and the outlook for property in 2019."

Purchased and living at Discovery Point, Wolli Creek, NSW
“I purchased a one-bedroom apartment in Discovery Point, Wolli Creek. As a first homebuyer I was able to take advantage of the state government stamp duty reductions, saving thousands of dollars. I knew about Frasers Property through a friend who had also purchased at Discovery Point, the sales team were so helpful and informative through the whole process”.
There’s one measure above all that tells us we’ve succeeded. We never ask to see it, but we observe it often: it’s the smile of pride in what you’ve achieved. At Frasers Property, we pride ourselves on creating places that you'll be proud to call home.
"It's a one bedder but it's really spacious. The layout is designed thoughtfully to blend aspects of the living and kitchen area. Everything we could want and need is a part of our new home."
“It is a good layout. It is very well thought out. There’s no wasted space. It’s finished very well and the kitchen has Smeg appliances.”
“Speaking with family, we thought it would be a good investment for the future, a way for us to get started [and] to take that first step into the property market. I think we got in at a really good time.”
Rocky and Teriza share their excitement with us as they take us through their newly completed home at Fairwater.
When I got the emails about the 5 per cent deposit and the government announced the changes to stamp duty for first home buyers, I went back and had another look to see if there were apartments still available, and it all just fell into place.”
