How common are 100% home loans?

A question often asked is to what extent mortgage lenders still provide “100% loans”, meaning mortgage loans that amount to 100% of the value of the home being purchased.

Slow price growth is good for first-time buyers

In the past year, home prices in the first-time buyer sector have grown only half as fast as they did in the previous 12 months, according to the latest statistics from BetterLife Home Loans, SA’s biggest mortgage originator.
