They used to be able to. But i did read at one time discussions to change it. Although this may have been the state based grant decisions.

Hi, we were looking for our new home and we researched alot during our time. Thankfully we found a house and are very happy.

Once bit of help which may save people money is the commission on a real estate agent. We found this great tool from Open Agent. visit their website , the tool is under tools/commissions-calculator This has saved us a few dollars. Always better in your pocket hey..

Anyways hope this helps someone.

A buyer does NOT pay an agent any commission on buying a house.
It's the seller that pays.

Avoid any agent that charges the buyer a commission.

Just one for the property. Not each.

Thanks JandE, I thought so as it was not covered in any of the Q & A's on the QLD site.

Don't forget that if you buy the property jointly and one of you have already gotten the grant before then you won't receive the grant unless the house is bought only need in the name of the person who has not received a grant.

One main condition is:
You or your spouse must not have previously owned property in Australia.
First Home Owner Grant

However some conditions vary depending on the State being applied in.
