First home-buyers moving to Qld to take advantage of $20,000 grant

first_imgMatt and Clair Goodall and their daughter Nyah were convinced to move to Brookhaven estate and build their first home, after attending an information session held by Frasers Property Australia.A SAVVY developer has helped first home buyers get into the property market by holding an information session on Queensland’s $20,000 First Home Buyer’s Grant.After attending one of the sessions, first home buyers Clair and Matt Goodall and their daughter Nyah are making the move to Queensland.Frasers Property Australia are holding the sessions as the June 30 deadline for the grant ticks down. As of July 1 the grant will revert back to its original $15,000.The couple have now bought into Frasers Property’s 1,500 lot Brookhaven community in Logan City“Our decision to buy at Brookhaven was influenced by the area, price and, of course, wanting to make the most out of the first home buyers grant before it ended,” said Clair.“The information session was great, it provided us with very helpful information about the local area and what’s to come”.With the construction process of the Goodall’s home set to start in September, they are planning for a move in early next year.Frasers Property Australia general manager residential Queensland Cameron Leggatt said the first homebuyer market accounted for almost 50 per cent of sales within the Brookhaven development.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home4 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor4 hours agoBrookhaven in Logan City.“This has led the team at Frasers Property to stage an event to help first-time buyersnavigate the purchase process,” Mr Leggatt said.Attendees heard from industry experts from Urbis, Horizon Financial Solutions, OWNit Conveyancing and Frasers Property Australia.Horizon Financial Solutions managing director Andrew Leak said there was a variety of ways that buyers with differing deposits could qualify for finance and he encouraged buyers to seek out a broker specialising in construction loans.“A broker can assess the first homebuyer’s situation with all lenders and all deposit options to co-ordinate the loan to suit individual needs,” he said.“I recommend first home buyers get pre-qualified for a loan before signing a contract so they can work to an accurate budget.”Brookhaven is set on a 150ha bushland-fringed site at Bahrs Scrub, it will have detached housing lots, a village retail centre, parks and green spaces.Land starts at $180,000 and there will be a display village opening in early 2018.last_img read more

Noll, Miller sweep John Morris Classic IMCA features

first_imgAPACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. (May 28-29) – Jason Noll and Trevor Miller both went 2-for-2 at Arizona Speedway’s Memorial Weekend John Morris Classic.Noll picked up both $1,000 to win Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified features while Miller swept the $600 to win Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main events.Noll raced from 10th starting to win Saturday’s caution-free 20-lapper and earn a spot on the ballot for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.“I had a pretty good car. We could go to the bottom to pass and then go back to the top,” said Noll, who worked his way past leader and eventual runner-up Mike Strobl seven circuits in. “We got into lapped traffic but had a pretty sizable lead so that wasn’t a factor.”Jeremy Thornton, Steven McCollough and Joey Moriarty completed the top five across the stripe.Win number two on season and on the weekend saw Noll draw the outside pole and lead every time around the track on Sunday, as well as dodge the spinning car that brought out the first of bang-bang-bang yellows that came out on unlucky lap 13.“We ran the last seven laps green and I was able to pull away some,” he said. “The car was just rolling really well. We were fortunate to have a pretty dominant weekend.”Thornton took home second-place pay. Chaz Baca Jr., Brian Schultz and Austin Kuehl were third through fifth, respectively.Miller has split time behind the wheel of the number 10M Northern SportMod with his father Bill and brothers Ben and Cody and made the most of his holiday weekend opportunities to win two 20-lap features, both from the third starting position.He’d topped his Saturday heat short a spring but retrieved it undamaged from the track, put it back on and tinkered with the setup just a bit before the feature.“I went top the top on a restart and the car was just stupid fast,” he said. “I just checked out.”Miller wasn’t as dialed in on Sunday but still found his way to the front quickly.“I stayed on the bottom,” he said. “I wanted to go to the top but didn’t hear any other cars and didn’t want to chance it.”James Dupre, Jason George, Ray Czumaj and Matt Martinez rounded out Saturday’s top five. Dupre, Miles Morris, George and Eric Winemiller were scored after Miller on Sunday.The wins were the second and third of the season for Miller.May 28 Feature ResultsModifieds – 1. Jason Noll; 2.
