Holly McSweeney took a moment to ask John Gelavis of the Master Builders WA to give us an update about the impact that the new federal and state building incentives has made on the construction industry. John responded by saying; “It has had the desired impact as a stimulus, the enquiries have tripled and the builders are starting to hit the ground. It has been a slow start but it is a wonderful thing! It’s terrific that consumers are engaging with the building industry which, due to COVID 19 has slowed dramatically.”
He then gave some sound advice saying; “Do your research, understand and make sure you comply with some of the federal government program guidelines. That you need to explore whether you’ll be eligible and can get finance> He then suggested they then talk to a Master Builder’s member who understands the eligibility requirements and should be able to give some advice so that First Home buyers can begin the journey”.
