Meet the Family Home Guarantee. It’s basically that little bit of support you’ve been dreaming of, that’s going to make a biiig difference for you and the fam. Stretched for time but still want to know all the deets? Don’t worry, we’ve done the research so you can get straight back to the parenting.
Cheat sheet: What is the Family Home Guarantee Scheme?
Let’s get you up to speed. The Family Home Guarantee is a new initiative that gives single parents a huuuuge helping hand to get into their own home sooner. If you’re riding solo and meet the eligibility criteria, you may be able to buy a home with just a 2% deposit and be backed by ScoMo to guarantee the remaining 18%. Rumour is you can also cut LMI out of the family photo, taking a whole lot more pressure off you. So that’s no more 20% deposit. No more LMI. Talk about money smarts, right?
Starting on 1 July 2021, just 10,000 Family Home Guarantee packages will be made available over the next four financial years. Keen? Be quick and let’s start prepping now.
The fine print (are you eligible?)
We know what you are thinking. All this is great, but what’s the catch? Does it apply to me and my family? We’ve got that covered too so you can save your smarts for when it counts, like daydreaming about that new family home which could now become a reality.
