Additional Help for First Homebuyers

The First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS) has just been given a boost of 10,000 additional places to help homebuyers secure their first home. The FHLDS is a government initiative that supports homebuyers to purchase a home with a deposit as little as 5%. The scheme provides a guarantee on lenders mortgage insurance which allows the first home purchaser to get in the market sooner.

-Applicants must have a deposit between 5 – 20%

Alongside this scheme there are other government initiatives supporting the first homebuyer. Those that are eligible will also benefit from the HomeBuilder and First Home Owner Grants which can provide an additional $35,000 incentive to enter the market.

With a steady supply of new housing available in Melbourne’s outer suburbs, housing affordability has never been so supported and accessible for those looking to purchase a place of their own.
