More changes affect first-home buyer funds FINANCIAL assistance for firsthome buyers will change again on July 1, the REIV has warned. Chief executive officer Enzo Raimondo said that under the current arrangements first-time buyers of existing homes in Victoria could access $9000 in financial assistance from State Government. The money comprised a grant worth $7000 and a bonus of $2000, he said. In contrast, buyers of a new home in regional Victoria were eligible for $22,500 in assistance, comprising the $7000 grant and speparate $11,000 and $4500 bonuses. “In the case of the grant, the maximum purchase price is $750,000 and for the bonus $600,000,” Mr Raimondo said. “After July 1, assistance for buyers of existing homes will be

reduced and increased for those buying a new home. “First-home buyers of existing homes will be able to access a grant of $7000. Buyers of a new home in regional Victoria will be eligible for $26,500, comprising the $7000 grant, a $13,000 bonus and a $6500 regional bonus.” Mr Raimondo said the incentives were important because they helped young buyers enter the market. “This is revealed in the Australian Bureau of Statistics data, which shows that in 10 months, as the generous federal stimulus was withdrawn the proportion of loans in Victoria going to first-home buyers dropped by 39 per cent,” he said. “In March this year first-home buyer loans comprised only 18.4 per cent of all loans.”

Comradeship strong at big REIV luncheon REAL Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) Geelong members had a chance to catch up on industry news and colleagues at the recent past-presidents’ lunch. Thirty Geelong members and past presidents joined REIV chief executive officer Enzo Raimondo, Geelong chairman Daniel Lamanna and serving branch president John Grabyn at the luncheon. North Geelong Real Estate’s Joe Grgic said members of REIV’s Geelong division shared a camaraderie rarely seen between competing real estate agents. “There is a really strong sense of integrity within the Geelong branch,” Mr Grgic said. “We all understand that, although we’re in competition with each other, at times it can benefit you to work alongside your competitors. “We’ve all built some pretty strong relationships with each other and it’s based on integrity and honesty.” Mr Grgic said members “reminisced” about industry changes at the lunch.

Good relationships: Joe Grigic “It was really informal and while there was some talk about the nature of the market, there was also a lot of catching up with old friends and chatting,” he said. “It was interesting to hear some old stories and see some old memorabilia.” Mr Grgic said REIV formed on July 1, 1985, to lead Victoria’s real estate industry and to promote “integrity, credibility and ethical standards”.

Building up: Residential building approvals in 2008/2009 amounted to $133 million in the greater Geelong region.

Geelong in top 20 building hotspots THE GEELONG region has landed in the top 20 of a Victorian Building and Population Hotspot list, according to Housing Industry Association (HIA). The HIA list defined a “hotspot” as a local area with more than $100 million spent on building works and an above average population rate. Greater Geelong was one of only two areas outside Melbourne that were placed in the top 20. The greater Geelong region enjoyed a population growth of 2.4 per cent and had $133

million worth of residential buildings approved. HIA Victorian Executive Director Gil King said the results were encouraging but warned against “complacency”. “It is really pleasing to see that more hotspots were evident in Victorian than in any other state in 2008-09,” Mr King said. “Victoria also has the nation’s fastest population growth, meaning demand for housing is higher than other states.” Mr King called on the State Government to find a

solution to Victoria’s housing shortage. “It is crucial that the Government continue to introduce measures that aim at stimulating housing supply, including the promised expansion of the Urban Growth Boundary as well as following through on commitment to increase infill development,” he said. HIA chief economist Harley Dale said Australian Bureau of Statistics building approval figures for April reinforced the need for a solution. “Detached house building

Dreaming of a house with a pool?

approvals fell by 18.3 per cent in Victoria and reached their lowest since May last year,” Mr Dale said. “Placing today’s building approvals result alongside recent weak updates for other leading housing indicators, highlights the risk that once the impact of past stimulus measures ends, residential construction activity may slow.” Mr Dale labelled the shortage “dire’ and said a slow in construction activity would be “detrimental” for Australia’s economy.

Grand Lakes Display Village LARA

An Independent Advertising Feature

Some of the region’s leading builders have put their contemporary designs on display at Grand Lakes Estate.

Grand Lakes Estate village now open with leading display homes L

ara’s Grand Lakes Estate display village is now open. With 15 contemporary display houses completed and open for inspection, Grand Lakes Estate will eventually feature a total of 25 displays from some of the region’s best builders. The range of quality builders will make Grand Lakes the Geelong region’s largest display village currently open to the public. Grand Lakes spokesperson Richard Bisinella says the estate provides a convenient option for

inspecting contemporary designs close to home for prospective buyers around Geelong. “The display houses offer a wide range of house plans and facades, so the village offers home buyers a great opportunity to see many great builders and houses in one location,” Mr Bisinella says. The display village features display houses from Barry Walker Homes, Colex Homes, Dennis Family Homes, Geelong Homes, GJ Gardner, Hamlan Homes, JG King Homes, Metricon Homes, MTD Homes, Mirko

Homes, Sheridon Homes, Signature Homes and Simonds Homes. Prospective buyers who visit the display homes will also have the chance to familiarise themselves with the attractions of Grand Lakes Estate. “The Grand Lakes Estate comprises an 800-lot subdivision with around 20 hectares of park land and three lakes,” Mr Bisinella says. “The estate also offers a large community centre that is close to completion and work has

commenced on a large playground adjacent to the site of a future restaurant.” “The last large display village in Lara, which comprised approximately 12 houses, was open in 2000 and this new display village provides for the first major display village north of Geelong since then. The location of this display village is seeing visitors come from all over the region and from Melbourne.” Mr Bisinella says Grand Lakes Estate features a wide range of lot sizes boasting “good frontage”.

“ With stages seven and eight presently under construction and due for completion in September and November respectively, the estate is moving ahead “The investment in the display village by these builders , together with the $700,000 Community Centre and $360,000 playground and several million dollars of investment in the public open space the Grand Lakes Estate, are providing great opportunities for Lara to secure new investment in the northern suburbs.”

Leading builder predicts strong growth in new homes market M

etricon Homes manager Darren Mehl predicts continued strong growth in the new-home market and points to a number of factors encouraging first and secondhome buyers despite the buoyant sales indicators. Established house prices in Australia rocketed by 20 per cent in the year to March (including a 4.9 per cent increase in the quarter to March), followed by five consecutive interest rate rises. “It’s important to understand that while all home values have done well, a lot of the growth in prices has come in the established home market, and at the upper end, too. “Whilst the starter and second homes offered by leading builders in the new-home market have remained remarkably affordable in the past 12 months. All the serious contenders have made great strides in forcing down build costs without compromising quality, through process improvements. “At the moment the building industry in Australia is a world leader in delivering dream homes at remarkably affordable prices,” Mr Mehl said. “Although we have seen some upward pressure on land prices due to scarcity, the value of the homes we have been selling has remained remarkably constant, and any price increases have been relatively marginal, and almost entirely due to the prices of raw materials going up. “The market is still very competitive, and anyone who wants to build a new home can still find excellent value.

“At Metricon we have home and land packages in the region, for under $300,000, within easy reach of the CBD and other population hubs. “Even if the Reserve Bank puts rates up by a quarter of a per cent next week, we must understand that rates are still at near-historic lows,” Mr Mehl said. He also added that the ‘Double the Grant’ offer to first-home buyers for a couple of weeks to make sure absolutely everyone who wants a new home has every chance of taking maximum advantage of the Government’s support. “Second and subsequent home buyers have more choice than ever before as we hone our design skills and create eco-friendly homes that suit the smaller block sizes that are now becoming more common. “Indeed, big growth in the market will come from the ‘knock down and rebuild’market in inner suburban areas as homes built a couple of generations ago are on their last legs. “People are increasingly realising that it often makes more sense to replace than renovate, and this trend is increasing fast,” he said. Mr Mehl said Metricon Homes looked forward to the future with confidence. “No-one would be disregarding the Government’s warning that the world’s economic recovery is still relatively fragile, and the news from Europe is worrying, but if we remain basically isolated from the worst of the economic storms doing the rounds the future still looks very bright. “We are confident that we will sell a record number of homes in 2010.”

GJ Gardener’s Catania now on display at Grand Lakes Estate G

482927-MD23-10

J Gardner Homes Geelong is pleased to announce the opening of its newest display home. The Catania 234 is a new plan in the GJ Gardner Homes Metro range. The Catania has been designed with flexibility in mind. Areas within the home have been apportioned to enable sections to be easily mirrored and, in some respects, switched so that the interior can be adaptable to a wide variety of living styles while addressing the issues of orientation toward the sun for energy and comfort benefits. These changes are possible without modifying the floor area or roofline, which means no change to the cost of the home! In addition, the emphasis on clever design and flexibility means the floor-plan can be readily adapted to sloping blocks with minimal disruption to the lay-out or design. Adding floor area by closing in the alfresco area or extending the home with an upper storey can be readily accomplished to suite buyers’ individual requirements. The Catania is a truly innovative design with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study nook, an outdoor area, a lounge, a laundry, an openplan kitchen, meals and family room and a double garage. Space has been utilised in an extremely versatile and practical way. All bedrooms are totally private and separate, while each living space is social and open-plan. However, close inspection of the floor-plan reveals the advantages of entertaining guests any time. Guests can move with ease from the front entrance to the lounge and through to the alfresco and kitchen area without have to enter the main living zone of the home, ensuring smooth flow through the interior. This makes the Catania perfect for keeping what appears to be an open design totally separate. GJ Gardner Homes allows clients to customise the Catania plan. Buyers can add a fourth or fifth bedroom, a powder room near the alfresco area or turn the lounge into a theatre room. On display in Grand Lakes Estate at 13 Springwater Drive, Lara, the Catania starts at $198,200 or, as displayed, $ 297,150. The Catania is open for viewing from midday to 5pm from Saturday through to Wednesday. For more information phone GJ Gardner Homes Geelong on 5221 1447 or visit its design centre at 228 Moorabool Street, Geelong, between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Visit GJ Gardener’s website at www.gjgardner.com.au.
