It is becoming increasingly harder to qualify for a first home loan. With property prices increasing substantially over the past few years, more people are struggling to save enough money for a deposit and to also pay purchase costs such as stamp duty. This is especially difficult for people who are also paying rent at the same time as saving the deposit.
There was once a time when it was possible to borrow 100% or even up to 106% of the purchase price of a property without offering another property as security. Once the Global Financial Crisis hit in 2008 those loans became no longer available.
So, what are my options to purchase a property and obtain a home loan without a deposit?
