It takes the average first home buyer over 5 years to save a 10% deposit. A recommended 20% deposit plus $10,000 for fees will take a first home buyer 13 years to save. First home buyers can speed up their savings with a first home saver account!

^Words such as "top", "best", "cheapest" or "lowest" are not a recommendation or rating of products. This page compares a range of products from selected providers and not all products or providers are included in the comparison. There is no such thing as a 'one- size-fits-all' financial product. The best loan, credit card, superannuation account or bank account for you might not be the best choice for someone else. Before selecting any financial product you should read the fine print carefully, including the product disclosure statement, fact sheet or terms and conditions document and obtain professional financial advice on whether a product is right for you and your finances.
