Melbourne’s Six-Week Corona virus Lock down

Six Week Corona virus Lock down

Just under a week ago, Premier Daniel Andrews announced that Melbourne would undergo a strict six-week lock down to prevent a second wave of corona virus cases within Victoria. To further limit the spread of the virus, authorities also announced the closing of the border between Victoria and New South Wales to further limit the potential spreading of the virus to other states across the country.

As the number of cases surge across the state, the initial lock downs of several suburbs that were deemed “hot spots” for the re-emergence of the virus have led Victoria to reimpose Stage Three restrictions in Metropolitan Melbourne. As per the restrictions, people are allowed to leave their homes for work or study, exercise, shopping for supplies and for medical purposes. 

What this means for home buyers

It was only just a few weeks ago that display villages and open houses were beginning to reopen to the public, however due to the current restrictions, most have been forced to close temporarily. Despite that, some home builders are allowing customers to book a private viewing of display homes to allow them to view the home in-person, while adhering to social distancing guidelines. 

Virtually visiting display homes

Thanks to modern technology, home buyers still have the opportunity to virtually “visit” display homes via 360º virtual tours of the homes. In fact, home buyers can take advantage of these virtual tours by taking their time exploring the homes and even taking screenshots of any particular designs or fixtures they may be interested in. On top of that, virtual tours present the opportunity for home buyers to “visit” the display home at their convenience as often as they like.

Home buyer grants for pandemic buyers

Just a month ago, the Australian government introduced the Home Builder grant program for eligible owner-occupiers, including first home buyers. The grant of $25,000 provided to eligible Australian citizens assists home buyers in their journey towards home ownership during the pandemic period. 

Achieve Homes will continue construction of new homes during this pandemic period, while adhering to social distancing guidelines and constantly ensuring the safety and well-being of all our staff, including those in construction, sales and administration. 

To view our display homes, you can take a Virtual Tour of any of our homes, or for private viewings of our Melbourne display homes, please contact us to book an appointment. If you are interested in our House & Land packages, our sales consultants in Canberra and Melbourne will be more than happy to help you find your new home.
