    You haven’t factored in the interest payable on the home loan for the person that bought early. To say someone has ‘made 85k’ is a bit simplistic too.

      Hi Matt, thankyou for your comment. Good point in regards to more interest payable on a bigger loan but an extra $60,000 in borrowing at 5% (which is really high in today’s market) is only $3,000 per annum in interest so I would still argue they are well ahead with a 5% deposit.
      Not sure what you are getting at with your comment of “made 85k is a bit simplistic too’. We can simplify or complicate the numbers as much as you like, but I maintain the view that you are better off with a 5% deposit than 20% for your first home.
