Homebuyer Fund

The Homebuyer fund is now available for eligible Victorians. The State Government introduced the $500 million fund in July as an extension of the HomesVic Shared Equity Initiative. 

If you’re looking to buy a home you might only need to have a 5% deposit. But before you decide to apply for the scheme there are a few things you need to look at.

  1. Check if you’re eligible
  2. Make sure you understand the requirements for this scheme and ongoing obligations
  3. Refinancing proposition
  4. Loss of profit if sold

Eligible homebuyers receive a contribution of up to 25 per cent towards the purchase price, or up to 35 per cent for eligible Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander homebuyers.

The homebuyer can avoid paying Lenders Mortgage Insurance. The Victorian homebuyer fund is a shared scheme which means you may lose part of your gains in the property’s value to the State Government. 

 Who is eligible?

You must be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or a permanent Australian resident.
