First Home Loan Deposit Scheme extension could be just the start

Victorian first-home buyers can make an up to $850,000 first step onto the property ladder under an extended and revised key housing support program.

On Saturday, Housing Minister Michael Sukkar announced an additional 10,000 First Home Loan Deposit Scheme places, and raised the cap in Victoria from $600,000 to $850,000.

But the extra 10,000 places nationwide are reserved for those buying off the plan, or a newly built home.

First Home Loan Deposit Scheme warning for buyers considering it

Lockdown costs Melbourne buyers $25k HomeBuilder grant chance

The scheme allows first-home buyers to purchase a home on a deposit as low as 5 per cent without paying lenders’ mortgage insurance, as the government goes guarantor on their loan.

Building industry groups have lauded the move, but warned the state’s new home industry will need further support — urging for an extension to the nation’s $25,000 HomeBuilder grants in Victoria as well.

The extra places are in addition to another 10,000 on offer across the 2020-2021 financial year, and a further 9984 that were taken up in the first six months of this year.

The latest tranche will available from October 6 to June 30.

The state’s treasury has advised there are no plans to raise the $750,000 cap that applies to the up to $20,000 on offer in First Home Owner Grants, or for stamp duty concessions.

The federal government has not said if it will raise the $750,000 cap for the $25,000 HomeBuilder scheme which ends at the end of the year.

Urban Development Institute of Australia Victorian chief executive Danni Hunter said the federal government’s extension of the FHLDS was a positive step, but more was needed.

“Expanding the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme is a sensible

Black Americans are leaving their homes to start their own all-Black communities

This report is part of “Turning Point,” a groundbreaking series by ABC News examining the racial reckoning sweeping the United States and exploring whether it can lead to lasting reconciliation.

For now, the small parcel of land known as Freedom, Georgia, is just a campground on red clay under the hot sun. But for the Black Americans who are moving here, it’s a dream.

So far, about 19 families, most of whom are from Georgia, have pooled their money to buy the nearly 97 acres of land in Wilkinson County, which is located about two hours south of Atlanta. It’s their escape, they said, from the everyday racism that feels like a part of life in the United States.

“We came together and we said, ‘You know what, we don’t like being slaughtered in the streets. We don’t like our children being there, being at the mercy of some psychopath that wants to tackle us and arrest us and bang our heads. We don’t want that. So how about we just come together and build our own,’” said Dr. Tabitha Ball, a licensed clinical psychologist from

HCAD residential appraisers to start visiting neighborhoods and homes

Published

While they do it every year, the Harris County Appraisal District is reminding residents that appraisers will be visiting neighborhoods throughout the county starting Oct. 1.

With so many people working from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic, HCAD wants residents to know what to be on the lookout for when appraisers show up to verify neighborhood changes, property characteristics and other data.


While initially focusing on new construction, all properties are subject to verification.

“Correct data is essential to developing accurate estimates of value,” said Roland Altinger, chief appraiser. “Field inspections by our appraisers are a very important part of this process.”

HCAD wants residents know what appraisers will look like and what they will do while appraising properties.



Foremost, appraisers “will never ask to enter” a home nor ask property owners to accompany them around a house.

“Appraisers will knock on the front door to alert the resident they are on the property, identify themself as an HCAD appraiser, and ask permission to measure the home and any other structures on the property,” HCAD reported in a news release. “If access is denied, the appraiser will leave the property and estimate the size and characteristics from the street. If the property owner is not home, the appraiser will measure the sections of the structures that are accessible without entering a gate.”


Appraisers may appear as early at 7:45 a.m. but not later than 5:15 p.m. All appraisers wear a blue jacket or vest with the “HCAD emblem on the front and HCAD Appraiser on the back and carry an identification badge with his or her picture, name and unique appraiser number.”


Since they work from their own personal vehicles with a magnetic sign attached, identifying them
