The National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC) has released its second annual First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS) Trends & Insights Report.

The report found that the proportion of FHLDS guaranteed loans originating from mortgage broker channels was 56% in 2020–21, up from 48% in 2019–20.

The report also covers data for the New Home Guarantee (NHG) with brokers originating 72% of loans guaranteed by this scheme.

The FHLDS and NHG are Australian Government initiatives to support eligible home buyers purchase their first home sooner.
