How much can I borrow as a single parent?
Single parents with two children, who have a median income of $56,795 after tax, could borrow a maximum of $350,00 to $375,000. Core Logic has data for about 1,000 NSW suburbs, and the median price for a home is under $375,000 in 127 of them.
You must have a deposit of between 2% and 20% of the total loan value. If a borrower has a deposit of more than 20%, the home loan cannot be covered by the Family Home Guarantee, according to the NHFIC factsheet.
It’s correct that a single parent can receive $35,000 in benefits, if he or she lives in one of the 10 states listed in the Cato report, or Washington, D.C. But the median welfare package, which would have been the relevant number to use, is about $28,800 — lower than Grothman’s figure.
