MASTER BUILDERS WA’S FIVE KEY BUD­GET MES­SAGES

Cockburn Gazette - - RESIDENTIAL -

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.
