First Home loan offers to start the 2024/25 financial year

The end of the financial year (EOFY) is upon us again! Some lenders have increased the discretionary discounts for first home buyers, especially those looking to take advantage of the Federal Government’s HGS (FHBG) Scheme.  Furthermore, lenders on the FHBA Mortgages panel have updated their lending policies allowing first home buyers with complex situations get their first home loans. 

In the June meeting, the RBA kept interest rates on hold at 4.35%, meaning it has been steady for 7 consecutive months now. Many economists are predicting for interest rates to stay on hold till 2025, with the next move still likely to be a rate cut.

Some lenders are looking to start the new financial year of 2024/25 with a bang; therefore, they are offering some special deals/incentives for first home buyers as they consider first home buyers to be an important part of their offering. Our FHBA Coaches some of the latest home loans offers that are currently available through our exclusive & complimentary first home buyer home loan service – FHBA Mortgages, below:
