First-home buyer homeloan affordability

This chart series is built from our monthly homeloan affordability reports, sponsored by Roost, measuring the proportion of take-home pay needed to afford the mortgage payment.

This series tracks affordability for a 25-29 year old on a median income, buying a lower-quartile-priced house, and compares it to the series for standard buyers based on 30-34 year olds buying a median priced house.
