A Perth finance broker has pointed out a potential hurdle in the Federal Government’s HomeBuilder scheme.

The Federal Government unveiled a $688 million housing package this morning designed to prop-up Australia’s construction sector.

Owner-occupiers will be given a $25,000 grant to help build a new home, or undertake substantial renovations.
