Bypassing the need for the “Bank of Mum and Dad”

The “Bank of Mum and Dad” (loans or gifts from homebuyers’ parents) is now considered one of the most important factors in the Australian mortgage sector. However did you know that Darren Walters’ No1 Property Guide has been bypassing the need for this bank for over two years now?

A September 5 Channel Seven news report highlighted the importance of the “Bank of Mum and Dad” in young people being able to afford a deposit for a home. According to the news program, young homebuyers are being priced out of the real estate market, particularly in capital cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

As real estate prices continue to soar many young folk are turning to their parents to help them buy their own home. And studies show that parents are only too willing to help their kids out with an estimated 29 percent of mums and dads offering money to their children for a deposit.

The figures speak for themselves:

$65.3 billion has been “lent” to kids.

The average sized loan is $64,000.

Parents are now considered the fifth largest player in the mortgage market.Of course Mums and Dads have always played a big part in helping their children get into their own homes.

It’s only natural to want to see the kids succeed. However with property prices on the rise, borrowing the deposit — or part payment — can be a significant drain on parental financial resources.

However it is possible to bypass the need for the “Bank of Mum and Dad” To not have to ask them for help in affording a deposit for a new home?
