Budget offerings announcing an extension to the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme by Housing Minister Michael Sukkar added an additional ten thousand places for first home buyers to enter the Aussie residential market.


"Additional grants will not only help first home buyers but also support the jobs of Australia's Tradies at a time when the economy needs it most" 


The grant implemented just after we introduced GST guarantees first timers a loan to purchase their first homes with minimal deposit and remove expensive lender's mortgage insurance.


If you're interested in finding out more about government criteria and lending eligibility, there are options of over twenty-five lenders ready to work with you.


Borrow up to 95% of the property value based on conditions to qualify from lenders like Rams and NAB and buy or build your first new home.
