Can I still get the government’s First Home Owner Grant if I buy an investment property?

Well, no and yes. The government’s First Home Owner Grant is typically only available if you’re going to live in your first home. However, in some states you can still get the grant if you live in your property for at least six to 12 months when you first buy it – after that, you can then rent it out as an investment property.
