“I was 19 years old and I probably didn’t know the full extent of what I was getting into” – Thomo, Fresh 92.7 Brekky co-host

Buying a home for the first time is a massive step in many young people’s lives, but how exactly do you know when the time’s right to do it?

Many of us are either still living at home or renting, with owning a home usually a distant pipe dream. While there’s currently some limited assistance from the state government, the federal government’s pledged to help make it easier to pay the deposit on your first home. First Home Match Maker helps out people looking to buy their first place, particularly on the finance side of things.

To discuss the issue further, Wavelength sat down with Steve from First Home Match Maker, and Simon, a finance and wealth consultant from Crown Money, to investigate the process of buying your first home. Fresh’s very own Brekky co-host Thomo also popped by to talk about his journey as a first home buyer.
