Owning your first home is easier

Brisbane City Council is planning for Brisbane’s future while making it easier to buy your first home, by providing a one-year 50 per cent rates discount for first home buyers.

We’re making housing more affordable so more residents will have the opportunity to own their own home.

The Lord Mayor’s 2019-20 Budget included a First Home Buyer remission scheme, offering a 50 per cent reduction on Council rates for first home buyers in their first 12 months of home ownership.

The First Home Buyer remission scheme will commence from 1 October and will be available on homes with a value of less than $750,000.
