First Home Buyers Return

From an REIQ press release:

The low interest rate environment and more affordably-priced properties are continuing to attract Queensland first home buyers into the property market, according to the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ).

The latest Australian Bureau of Statistics data found that more than 1,650 properties were financed for Queensland first home buyers in June - an increase of 30 per cent on June last year.
And over the June quarter, according to the Office of State Revenue, more than 5,400 First Home Owner Grants were paid in Queensland compared to 4,000 over the same period in 2011.
