The First Home Owner Discount (FHOD) is a full stamp duty concession on the initial $500 000 value of the home, which equates to stamp duty savings of up to $23 928.60.

For established homes valued at more than $650 000, a stamp duty saving of $10 000 is available until 31 December 2016.

This First Home Owner Discount is available to eligible first home buyers who enter into a contract to purchase an established home. If a person is not eligible for the FHOD, they may be entitled to the First Home Owner Grant, the Senior, Pensioner and Carer Concession or the Principal Place of Residence Rebate if they meet the relevant eligibility requirements for the respective scheme.

Where an applicant is eligible for more than one home incentive concession or grant, applicants will be entitled to the highest grant or concession.
