“The proportion of first home buyers, as part of the total owner-occupied housing finance commitments, rose to 17.2 per cent and is the highest proportion since July 2013. The number of first home buyer commitments increased by 14.0 per cent for the month and is the highest since December 2009,” REIA President Malcolm Gunning said.
