SYDNEY, 4 DECEMBER 2020
With the HomeBuilder Grant valued at $25K set to expire at the end of the year1, time is running out for people to access the $25,000 benefit to help them call south west Sydney’s game-changing Ed.Square community home.
Of the opportunities on offer in the Frasers Property Australia community are Balanced Energy Homes – or Be.Homes, featuring the latest and most advanced all-electric townhome designs.
An industry-first at Ed.Square, the Be.Homes feature leading energy efficiency technology paired with the perfect amount of solar energy to power them in a cost-effective way and produce more energy than they consume.
Pricing for one-bedroom homes is from $499,000 to $599,000, two-bedroom homes are $710,000 to $725,000, three-bedroom homes are $750,000 to $815,000 and four-bedroom homes are $985,000 to $1,029,000.
“We have approximately 15 one to three-bedroom Be.Homes priced under the $750,000 cap qualifying for the government’s HomeBuilder scheme2, which provides a $25,000 grant for new-build homes,” says Warwick Dowler, Development Director, Frasers Property Australia.
“Construction of Be.Homes is anticipated to begin in March 2021 within the grant’s requirement of the three-month construction commencement timeframe.
“Buyers eligible for the First Home Owner Grant3 can add another $10,000 in savings and then there’s the bonus of the NSW Government stamp duty concessions for homes up to $800,000 in value.
“That means there’s an opportunity before Christmas to save up to $35,000 and be living in a Balanced Energy Home in Sydney’s game changing community with its own Town Centre on the train line at Edmondson Park just 45 minutes from the CBD.
“In welcome news for NSW residents, the HomeBuilder program has been extended, however buyers who would like to take advantage of the $25K government assistance and secure their future in a new urban community should act quick as it’s an opportunity soon to run out,” says Mr Dowler.
Mr Dowler says homes and apartments at Ed.Square have been selling well throughout COVID which is a reflection of the value people see in the amenity and the convenience of the lifestyle on offer.
Be.Homes is part of a $1.42 million project by Frasers Property Australia and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). It aims to expand the knowledge and understanding of renewable energy technology so these innovations can be refined and developed to elevate the energy performance of Australian housing.
The 51 medium density BE.Homes include a package of leading all electric energy efficient inclusions, cleverly matched with the right amount of solar energy to power them, making the BE.Homes cheaper to run and easier to use.
Set amongst more than six hectares of open space, Ed.Square will be one of Sydney’s most walkable communities. Ed.Square Town Centre is within 400 metres of all homes, and parks and bushland are dotted through and around the community to encourage walking and facilitate community connections.
Ed.Square will be serviced by convenient bus and train links to Parramatta and Sydney CBD, with easy access to Sydney’s main roads and Western Sydney Airport. It is a 45-minute train journey from Edmondson Park railway station to Central Station.
The Ed.Square Sales Centre and Display Village is open daily from 11am to 4pm. For further information or to register your interest in Ed.Square, phone Frasers Property on 13 38 38 or visit www.EdSquare.com.au.
