In many ways there has never been a better time to build a new home.
Record-low interest rates combined with the Government's $25,000 HomeBuilder grant is making building an attractive proposition for many border residents.
First home buyers are also in a remarkable position at present, with further grants of up to $20,000 available to help get them into their first homes.
Peter and Jayne Bowen have been building homes across the border region for the past three decades, and have witnessed many of the peaks and troughs in the residential construction industry.
With the impact of the COVID19 pandemic throughout the first half of 2020, the industry was facing a possible significant downturn, which would have had a major impact on employment and the local economy.
Peter and Jayne have always worked in partnership with their local suppliers and trades to develop programs to incentivise new home buyers into the market.
This focus on local trades and local buyers has been a hallmark of Peter Bowen Homes over the years as a true local builder focused exclusively on the border area.
"We are incredibly fortunate in this region to have access to so many fantastic local businesses that are committed to supporting our community," Peter Bowen Homes general manager Michael Walsh said.
"Through encouraging people to buy local, support truly local business, and support each other we are able to create a strong local economy and strong communities at the same time."
