Welcome First Home Buyers

Becoming a first home buyer is an exciting experience, and there can be a lot to take in – from the floor plans to the finance and the First Home Owner Grant (FHOG).

At Henley, we are here for those who are buying a first home, as we have nearly three decades of new home construction experience to give you the information, knowledge and confidence to make the best design, style, finance and floorplan decisions for your needs.

One first home buyer doesn’t always look like the next - you might be a single, couple, young or growing family, investor or even empty nester. There’s no stereotypical first home buyer and our team of experts - passionate and inspired people - are here to help you, wherever and however you need it.

When you’re looking at first home builders, look for one that offers plenty of house plans and prices. There’s no point building your first home if it doesn’t suit or enhance your lifestyle, so we help you factor in the complete cost to build a house so you are comfortable and confident in both lifestyle outcome and finances.

We’re all about the affordable cost of building a house, which is why we have three unique ranges of home designs. This approach means you can browse within your budget and hopefully exceed your expectations of what you can achieve when building your first home.

Henley Essence Collection Designed to be an easy first step into home ownership.

Henley Collection has a wide range of designs, offering flexibility for every taste and budget. 

Henley Reserve Collection is our most luxurious collection with plenty of scope for upgrades and customisation.

We also offer better than industry standard features, from our warranties and guarantees to our sustainability outcomes. This means you can be more confident when you build – backed by the security of structural and product warranties, and more comfortable in your home, with better energy efficiencies and reduced long term energy consumption. Building a more sustainable house is affordable for first home buyers at Henley, as it’s part of our everyday approach.

Our team of finance professionals at Waterstone Finance can also give you a free, no obligation preliminary finance qualification, so you know exactly where you stand. They can do this onsite at our display centres, or call to confirm a time that suits you.

Building your own home should be a joyful experience, and that’s why at Henley we are committed to being honest and transparent about pricing, inclusions, upgrades and the purchase and construction process.

When building a house a significant piece of the puzzle is the land, so first home buyers house and land packages can hold a lot of appeal. These packages are designed to be fuss-free, all inclusive opportunities, so you can take part in the complete new home process and make all of your interior and design selections as part of the fixed price package, and simply upgrade items that appeal to you.

The first home buyers grant is still available in Victoria, as outlined by the State Revenue Office, and there are also duty savings as well, helping to ease the cost to build a house and helping you into home ownership sooner, so call us today to see what your options are!
