According to a recent study by the National Australia Bank (NAB), first home buyers, even those in their 30s, are increasingly turning to their families to get on the property ladder. From 4.8 percent in 2010, 6.7 percent of first home buyers today are opting to use the NAB Family Guarantee.
In the 2015 fiscal year, 73 percent of the total number of NAB Family Guarantee users belonged to the 20 to 29 age bracket. Twenty-one per cent of the users were between 30 and 39. Even teens were in on the action, with 3 per cent of the users ages 19 and below.
