As of 2019, Australia's housing stock numbers almost 10 million homes, with nearly 20,000 new dwellings approved every month. Buying a home is the most expensive purchase most Australians will make - but what does the state of Australia's home loan debt actually look like? On this page we cover average loan size for first home buyers and others, whether we prefer fixed or variable, the number of loans written each month, and the average home loan size for each state.
