How much stamp duty will I pay?
That depends on where you’re buying and whether you’re eligible for first home buyer stamp duty savings. Stamp duty is a state government charge so it varies from state to state. It’s usually based on the price paid for your home or land. Stamp duty for first home buyers can be a lot less than for upgraders and investors. Plus it can also go hand in hand with the first home buyer grant.
