The biggest extra that homebuyers pay is "duty".
The duty payable on a median price home in Melbourne is around 5% of the price ( - a huge burden, and a big disincentive to changing houses, but the State Government confirmed in the 2013 budget that it is heavily reliant on this form of revenue-raising)
You can get further detail on this tax from the State Revenue Office website.
