First-home buyers are in need of heroes: Can we count you in?

First-home buyers are in need of heroes: Can we count you in?

The new Federal Government initiatives ‘alone’ may not be enough. The proposed saving-for-a-deposit idea is helpful, but does not serve as an immediate solution. Greater industry-collaborative efforts are required to provide an immediate solution, because…

  1. First-home buyers deserve a break;
  2. We believe first-home ownership impacts on our social-fabric; and
  3. It will provide healthy growth for our economy.

“Holistic community participation in, real estate and its many benefits, is great for first-home buyers and our economy”

One of our heroes

In my opinion, Sir Robert Menzies [Housing Policy 1963] was one of our heroes; please click here to read his vision/ actions that transformed Australia’s housing affordability and helped make us… Australia the lucky country.

Background | Housing affordability crisis

The first-home owner market has been in decline for the past 10 years! Currently at around 14%. This is too low, impacting on our social-fabric and economy.

Our economy has shifted, possibly neglecting the key civil and fundamental right of all Australians, our great Australian dream. As evident by the continuing decline in first-home ownership. Now in crisis! Risking the great Australian dream of owning a home and impacting our social-fabric and economy.

Home ownership is more than the four walls, it represents:

  • family safety/ stability;
  • increased dignity;
  • mental health;
  • breaking free from renting;
  • building wealth, equity and financial options such as: education; health; funding a new small business; charity/ assistance to family members; and, nest-egg for retirement; and
  • overall, less financial burden on our social systems.

The economic shift is causing many to miss-out. “If this is not resolved it will become a major community, social and economic problem.”
