New Year, New Home? Here’s how you can secure your first home with a deposit as little as 5%

Wednesday 08 January, 2020

As of January 1st 2020, the Australian Government have announced a new scheme allowing first home buyers to purchase a property with a deposit of as little as 5%.

Working alongside your broker, you can start building your property portfolio straight away.

The First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS) allows you to creep into the market without having to worry (too much) about your savings. Of course, there are a few requirements to meet the criteria – but the good news is we can help you with that.

Some more good news? The FHLDS can be used in conjunction with other government schemes such as First Home Owner Grants, stamp duty concessions and the First Home Super Saver Scheme.

Want to know more? Well, we’ve known this was coming for a little while now (sorry, we weren’t allowed to tell). So, we have done all the research for you. It’s as simple as calling into our office and seeing our friendly staff to see if you’re eligible.

With the property market continually growing, don’t wait any longer – you can live the Australian dream now.

Only 10,000 loans are being granted nationwide, so you better act fast.

The RBA lifted the official cash rate by 25 points to .35 percent last week – the first rise in 11 years. While we understand that a rate rise is never a good thing, interest rates are still at historic lows and we wonder if the use of the word ‘hike’ is a necessary one!
