IN COVID NEWS: ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr said addressing housing available across the territory is a key focus. “The problem here is that there is a majority of homeowners in the community, so more people own property than do not. I have not yet met a voter who says they want the value of their property to fall,” he said. “So in the absence of policies that reduce the value of housing to existing property owners, the way to address affordable housing is to increase the supply of cheaper housing, there are new products coming on the market, and that is what a program to land release is about, that’s what urban renewal and filling is all about. “What I could expect, however, is that our stamp duty reduction program will continue to focus very strongly on the lower half of the housing market to provide more assistance. for those who want to enter the market for the first time. “The ACT Government’s budget for 2021-22 is touted as one of its largest in terms of affordable and public housing spending, with $ 80 million to be spent over the next four years on repairs and maintenance plus close to $ 20 million over four As announced in late September, the commitments include $ 720,000 over four years to launch expressions of interest for building-to-house schemes to identify what the government advocates for rt would be required to deliver the projects. The budget also includes $ 4.2 million for construction work to facilitate the release of land in Watson’s block 2, section 76. The site is earmarked for up to 200 new homes, including affordable housing. Sustainability incentives for households are another key element As announced last week, the government has committed $ 150 million to a sustainable household scheme and is offering support Households offer interest-free loans of up to $ 15,000 to pay for energy efficiency improvements, including solar panels, battery storage, zero-emission vehicles and energy-efficient electrical appliances. Macgregor residents Chelsea Menchin and Andrew Carbine recently sold their four-bedroom home, saying its energy efficiency rating (EER) was a major draw for buyers. In recent years, the couple has invested in series of home upgrades, including new insulation, 20 solar panels on the roof and three water tanks. “Having 5.5 EER on a large block in an old house … I think that was a big selling point because people can see that we’ve invested in things that you can not see but that actually make a big difference in your life, “said Mrs. Menchin. Other sustainability measures in this year’s budget include an interest-free loan system for low-income homeowners in the government’s five-year, $ 50 million vulnerable household support scheme for households. The Solar for Low Income program will also continue to provide grants of up to $ 2,500 to low income homeowners to support the installation of solar cells on the roof. Budget budgets assume a strong pent-up demand for properties after lockdown, which will result in an increase in auction clearances across territory. This is likely to put upward pressure on property prices throughout the ACT, but the government expects growth rates to be moderate. After the sale of their home, Mrs Menchin and Mr Carbine move to Yass, a move that has been on the cards for a while but would not have been possible if the real estate market had not been so strong. “The average of 22 days [selling time] as the Canberra market currently has, as well as the good [sale] the prices enabled us to do so, “said Mrs Menchin.
