A year on and winners Colby, Jaymee and their young son are living the dream in their brand new FIRST HOME after winning the $20,000 home deposit in 2017.
The star of the story here is Jaymee who originally overlooked Colby’s skepticism and entered the competition after seeing an ad on Facebook last year thinking; “you just never know your luck.”
The pair had been renting, with the hope of saving enough money over a few years for a home deposit. After winning the competition and meeting with Aussie Living Homes, they were surprised to find that they qualified for a shared equity scheme which has meant that their mortgage repayments are now less than their previous weekly rent.
The Dream of home ownership is now a firm reality for the young couple as they receive the keys to their brand new 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom Infinite home. Jaymee says the $20,000 has allowed them a huge step forward in life and are now planning for more life changes like marriage, study and work promotions for Colby.
Jaymee’s advice to renters out there is to “take the Rent vs Buy quiz on the website and see for yourself that it is possible to own your own home even as low-income earners.”
For those dreaming of building their own home and have seen the competition ads “Just enter it!” Jaymee says. The pair are living proof to their friends and family that you’ve got to be in it to win it, and we couldn’t agree more.
With such a successful competition in 2017, Aussie Living Homes are giving away another $20,000 Home Deposit to one lucky West Australian again this year. If you want a chance to build your own home, then enter here as the draw closes July 18th, 2018.
