Some good news for people trying to get in the market –

From FY2023-24, the Federal government has added 50,000 new places to the Home Guarantee Scheme.   The scheme gives first home buyers the opportunity to buy a home with a 5% deposit and avoid paying Lenders Mortgage Insurance.

  • First Home Guarantee (FHBG) – supporting eligible home buyers to buy a home sooner, with a deposit as little as 5%, 35,000 places are available.
  • Regional First Home Buyer Guarantee (RFHBG) – supporting eligible regional home buyers to buy a home sooner, in a regional area, with a deposit as little as 5%. 10,000 places are available.
  • Family Home Guarantee (FHG) – supporting eligible single parents and eligible single legal guardians of at least one dependent to buy a home sooner, with a deposit as little as 2%.   5,000 places are available.
