Demand for no-deposit loans reaffirmed

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

Mortgage products requiring little or no deposit look set to thrive because of Australian’s inability to save.

According to business information company Datamonitor, a large number of respondents in a survey of 2,000 Australians said that they had saved little or no deposit for a home loan.

Only 34 per cent of the respondents surveyed that had a mortgage saved a deposit of 20 per cent or more. 

Moreover, 15 per cent of mortgagors had no deposit at all and a further eight per cent had a deposit of only five per cent or less.

The survey also found that 55 per cent of those without a mortgage did not expect to ever be able to purchase a home.

According to Datamonitor the main reasons for this was not being able to afford repayments, as well as high rental costs that make it difficult for many to save a deposit.
