The Property Planner, Buyer and Professor met this morning for a ‘breaking news’ recording on the $688 million HomeBuilder stimulus package announced by the federal government yesterday. The new package aims to safeguard the jobs of a million tradies, to prop up the construction industry which was teetering on the edge of oblivion. Home owners, first home buyers and renovators will be offered a cash grant of $25,000 for building contracts and purchase of new dwellings signed from 4 June 2020 right through to 31 December 2020.
