First home buyers are individuals and households that are entering the home ownership market by purchasing a property for the first time. The number and share of first home buyers in the market is often used as an indication of the strength and affordability of the overall home buying market, making it an important area of research.
The First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS) and New Home Guarantee (NHG) are Australian Government initiatives to support eligible home buyers purchase their first home sooner. Data generated from these Schemes allows NHFIC to generate unique insights into the first home buyer market.
