Conditions are improving for firsthome where can i buy an unlocked iphone 5 buyers making their initial property acquisition, according to Genworth’s September Homebuyer Confidence Index.
While the index measuring firsthome buyer confidence dipped slightly by 0.5 points to 98.5 it remains above the national average for all home buyers of 98.4.
It also found that half (54%) of where can i buy an unlocked iphone 5 surveyed firsthome buyers believe it is a good time to buy a home, a figure that has more than doubled in the last two years.
Genworth also recorded a drop in potential firsthome buyers who were deterred from buying because they were unable to save for a deposit (down from 30% in March to 11% in September 2012) or unable to afford repayments (down from 14% in March to 5% in September 2012).
Firsthome buyers also appear more comfortable with saving a smaller deposit and taking on a bigger mortgage debt.

“Despite a slight fall in firsthome buyer confidence, this segment of the market remains more optimistic that now is a good time to buy a home,” says Genworth CEO Ellie Comerford.
“What is more heartening is that firsthome buyers are increasingly confident they can save the deposit necessary to buy their first home.”
