How a $15,000 Great Start Grant can help you

  • If you're thinking building a new home, this could be what gets you started
  • It could get you something more than you were expecting
  • It can get you into your first home sooner

There are definite advantages to building a new home instead of buying an established property, some of which include:

Fewer Repairs

Ready established homes can come at a cost. Even if they are in good shape, maintaining them will cost money, and they’re closer to their use by date than a band new property filled with the latest in durable materials available.


Building from one of our plans or custom designing your own lets you put your personal stamp on your new home. With CRJ you have the ability to customise your space and layout, and should you choose – even the materials. If you are building from scratch, it is the ultimate exercise in customisation!

Smarter & Greener

While it is definitely possible to retrofit established properties for sustainability and energy efficiency, it can be expensive, particularly if the home is quite old. A new property can include the latest in smart home or sustainable technologies, helping keep your household bills down once you have moved in, and maybe adding some convenience along the way.
