The Nuts and Bolts
Our offer extends to $800 per week if you are building a double storey home with McCarthy Homes, up to a total of $20,000. If you are building a single storey home, we will pay your rent up to $400 a week, up to a total amount of $10,000.
This rebate is paid to you as cash, allowing you to use the money to pay down your mortgage or existing rent. This means, that for up to 25 weeks from the date building of your home starts on site, you can have your rent paid and have some of the stress of building a home taken out of the equation. This is part of McCarthy Homes’ commitment to helping you have a stress-free home building experience. We want you to be able to move in and start enjoying you home immediately with less financially worries.
We’ll pay you so can you pay your rent or interest payments – if this is your first time (within the past 36 months) entering into a HIA Queensland New Homes Construction Contract (QC1) (HIA Building Contract) or a preliminary agreement with a view to entering into a HIA Building Contract with the Builder (Preliminary Agreement).
You can also combine this promotion with other offers, such as our Preliminary Deposit Saving, our Essentials Inclusions package or our Knock-down rebuild promotion (which could save you up to $60,000.00). This is a fantastic opportunity to get into a brand-new home at a greatly reduced cost.

Are you having difficulties paying your rent?
If you are struggling to meet rent payments due to changed economic circumstances, you are not alone. Thousands of individuals and families around the country are experiencing genuine rental duress due to losing their jobs or being allocated fewer hours. The coronavirus and associated government-imposed restrictions have caused hardship for many, but there are assistance programs.
If you are not in a position to build a home right now, but still require rental assistance, consider negotiating with your landlord. Explain your circumstances and the maximum rent that you can afford to pay. There is a good chance that your landlord is also experiencing difficulties during this time, and a reduction in cash flow may limit their ability to meet repayments on your property or others. If you are unable to find recourse by consulting your landlord or property manager, there are other resources available. State residential tenancy bodies are coordinating with landlords across the country to assist people keep their homes and pay their rent. You may be eligible for rent assistance or you may be able to negotiate a debt plan to help you stay above water.
