MASTER BUILDERS WA’S FIVE KEY BUDGET MESSAGES
WA’s building industry will continue to struggle unless the State Government retains the $10,000 FHOG in the next budget. More than 20 per cent of local builders will be pushed to the wall if the FHOG is abolished. Jobs for trades and apprentices will decline as work in the first-home buyer sector dries up. The next generation of first-home owners will not be able to enter the housing market without FHOG. Removing it effectively kills the Great Australian Dream. This dire situation will be compounded in regional WA, which is already struggling.
