New first home buyers scheme - Over 35's in home hunt deal

Hopeful first home buyers in their 40s and 50s are among the thousands of applicants who have rushed to sign up to the federal government's new loan deposit scheme. Singles make up more than 60 per cent of those applying for the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme which allows borrowers to enter the market with just 5 per cent deposit. The government will act as a guarantor for the remaining 15 per cent of the deposit meaning borrowers don't have to pay lender mortgage insurance. Singles cannot have a taxable income of more than $125,000 or $200,000 for couples.
