Tackle the gender gap head-on with Your HAS.
With Australia’s national gender pay gap sitting at more than 13%, women face major challenges when it comes to saving for a deposit.
National government statistics show that, over the course of a year, women are paid (on average) around $13,000 less than their male peers.
When it comes to raising that crucial deposit, to buy their own property, this shortfall places women at a distinct disadvantage.
For single women and single mothers, the challenges are even greater. How are they supposed to save a 20% deposit when raising kids, meeting rising rental payments, and paying all the bills on their own?
When applying for traditional home loans, single women and mums are often – without justification – seen as a greater financial risk than couples.
Despite the fact they always meet their rental payments, and hold down a job, they meet unconscious bias and a raft of unfair perceptions about their reliability.
The solution is HAS shared equity!
