Home buying by the numbers
Our homes are among some of the most expensive in the world, and right now Australians are faced with tough economic conditions following the summer bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic. And yet, home loan interest rates are at historical low levels. To further help Aussies get into the property market, the Morrison Government has introduced new stimulus schemes like HomeBuilder and has extended existing programs such as the first home buyer deposit scheme.
