First-home buyer numbers fall

Reserve Bank limits on low-deposit mortgages are cutting down the proportion of first-home buyers, a survey says.
The Bank of New Zealand-Real Estate Institute of New Zealand residential market survey found 17 per cent of agents said sales during February were    to first-home buyers, down from 24 per cent a year ago.

The results follow the survey finding 80 per cent of agents reporting fewer first-home buyers in November and December.
In October the Reserve Bank put strict limits on banks offering mortgages with less than 20 per cent deposits.
