Using the Victorian Homebuyer Fund
The Victorian Homebuyer Fund (VHF) is a new initiative by the state government aiming to help renters get into their own homes by paying for up to 25% of the price of the new home.
In the process of paying this 25%, the Victorian government will also be purchasing a stake of the home, equal to that percentage.
No1 Property Guide can help you take advantage of this new scheme by providing affordable house and land packages that fall into the correct price points for the region. We can even help you through the application process and increase your chances of securing one of the limited 3000 spaces for this Fund.
Yes, the Victorian Homebuyer Fund reduces your deposit requirements and purchase cost, but you’ll still need to meet a range of criteria. Darren Walters can help you get approved while also providing an affordable house and land package that is tailored to meet lending and VHF criteria.

We’ve Helped Thousands of Happy Clients Buy Investment Properties & New Homes Throughout Australia
Wendy & Richard
2018 No or Low Deposit Home
2020 SMSF Investment Property
Wendy and Richard came to us in 2018 seeking help to get back into the property market. With increasing house prices and not being able to save demanding 20% deposit most lenders require, it was seemingly impossible for them to ever buy their own home. The No1 team helped secure them a no or low deposit new home in no time at all.
Not long after that, Wendy and Richard enquired about using their Super to purchase an investment property. After talking to Darren and our investment specialists Derek, Wendy and Richard now own their own home and have an investment property in an SMSF all within 3 years.
Sharlene & Dion
2020 Equity Investment Property
Sharlene and Dion already owned a home when they came to Darren and No1 Property Guide seeking help. They wanted to break into the investment property market but were coming up short being able to fund their new investment.
But, thanks to Darren Walters’ proven investment property system, Sharlene and Dion were able to utilise the equity in their existing home, combined with help from Darren’s system and the No1 team, to add a second brand new custom home to their property portfolio
2019 No or Low Deposit Home
2021 SMSF Investment Property
After being turned down from traditional lenders, Dean turned to Darren Walters and No1 Property Guide in the hopes we could help him realise his homeownership dreams and leave the renting market forever. Within a few months Dean went unconditional and was finally back in the market as a homeowner.
Now 2 years later, he’s expanding his property portfolio thanks to Darren’s SMSF property investment system. And he’s looking to keep building that portfolio through equity and Super investing in the future!

Are there any eligibility criteria for the VHF?
Yes, there are a number of eligibility criteria including:
- Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
- Earn $125,000 or less per annum for individuals, $200,000 or less per annum for joint applicants
- Occupy the purchased property as your principal place of residence
- Property must be valued under $950,000 for Melbourne and Geelong, or $600,000 or less for other eligible locations
The No1 team can help guide you through the criteria and whether you are eligible or not through our no or low deposit new home system.
Will the Victorian Government own my home?
The VHF works by the Victorian government purchasing a stake (up to 25% or 26.5% for indigenous or Torres Strait Islanders) of your home. They will hold the ownership of that percentage of the property until you either sell or buy back that stake from them. However, you will hold ownership of the remaining percentage of the home, just as you would with any other kind of home loan.
Can I apply to any bank for the fund?
No. At the moment, there’s limited options for securing finance through the VHF. We work closely with almost all major lenders and have access to banks who are willing to fund and proceed with these home loans. Our Mortgage Managers will work with you to increase your chances of approval and help to get you approved for your new home through Darren’s unique system.
Why Do You Assess Everyone’s Situation?
Our assessment is easy but very precise and allows our consultants to advise all of your new home options without wasting your time.
Is there a limited number of spots?
Yes. There are currently only 3000 spots available for the Victorian Homebuyer Fund. There’s no word on whether more spots could be open in the future, so we recommend you get in as soon as you can before all the open spots are gone.
