I also added an option for renters to rent cheaper (smaller) home during first 5 years – this could be useful for young families with no children.
Assumptions: Immediate buyer buys home with current savings; renter saves that money and difference between rent and cost of owning a home. After 10 years, "late buyer" buys the same home (for future price), giving 90% of his savings as deposit. During periods when renter or late buyer spends more on housing, immediate buyer saves the difference. Rent and other costs of owning (strata, council etc. grow with CPI). Calculator assumes that renter moves once in 3 years. FHBG is assumed to be nominally the same in 10 years. If you have questions about other assumptions not mentioned please contact me and I will provide you requested assumptions.
