The National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC) released the second annual First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS) Trends & Insights Report, covering data on the FHLDS and New Home Guarantee (NHG) for 2020–21.
The FHLDS and NHG are Australian Government initiatives to support eligible home buyers purchase their first home sooner.
Key insights from the report include:
It is great to see Australians in all states and territories, capital cities and the regions, helped by these schemes. With growing housing affordability pressures, it is also very pleasing to see the schemes have supported almost 6,000 key workers purchase their first home. The interstate migration to the regions is particularly noteworthy and reflects a trend we have seen since COVID-19. This is particularly pronounced in Queensland which has been the greatest benefactor of interstate migration.
