At G&C Mutual Bank, we have over 60 years' experience in helping Australians purchase their own home. We have a proud history of providing flexible, competitively priced and award-winning products for first home buyers, including our First Home Premium Package and Get Ahead Start family guarantor option. We’re also working alongside the Australian Government on the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme to help even more first home buyers realise their dream of home ownership.

We understand that buying a home of your own is one of the most significant financial decisions you will ever make, and the home buying process can seem daunting for first home buyers.
