New South Wales first home buyers have been the quickest to return to market following softer house prices and falling rates.
An analysis of ABS September housing figures by RP Data released yesterday showed that New South Wales first home buyers represented 21 per cent of all first home buyer borrowings in September.
Victoria and Western Australia represented 20.9 and 20.5 per cent respectivley.
Cameron Kusher, an RP Data research analyst, said it was surprising that New South Wales and Western Australia held such large percentages of first home buyers “given that Sydney and Perth are the two most expensive capital city property markets”.
By contrast, he said, “South Australia and Tasmania have fewer first home buyers, yet they are much more affordable markets”.
The data also showed that New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia recorded their highest number of first home buyers since September 2001.
