The Government has put its faith in Australian construction, and has pledged to support the industry without boosting prices along the way. This is great news for Cairns homeowners and home builders, who will see their projects supported by a government grant scheme aimed at kickstarting construction across the country, including right here in Far North Queensland.
From June 4 until the end of 2020, builders and homeowners in Cairns and throughout Australia will be able to submit contracts to the HomeBuilder program. This program will provide a total of $688 million for home building and renovation projects, making it easier for builders to achieve the results their clients both need and deserve, as well as supporting homeowners seeking to create the property of their dreams.
As a direct result of this grant, the Government hopes to support the creation of 140,000 jobs. This is in addition to the one million other jobs that are expected to be created in residential construction after the grant is launched.
For Unique Constructions builder Mark Price, this is a very exciting opportunity, both for local homeowners and for the broader industry. Mark draws upon over two decades’ worth of professional building experience in the Cairns region.
So, if you are a Cairns property owner and you are looking to construct, renovate or rebuild a home in the city and its surrounding areas, what should you do?
