It's common knowledge that Australia is in the midst of a housing crisis.
Add on the rising cost of living, stagnant wage growth and inflation and interest rates - and it makes sense why young Aussies are feeling defeated about being able to own their own home in the near future.
So what is the answer to the crisis? The major political parties have different ideas.
Anthony Albanese has said the Labor Party's strategy is about reducing the cost of buying a home via their 'Help To Buy' Scheme. The scheme would allow the government to contribute 30 to 40 per cent of the cost of a home - equity that must be paid back when the property is sold or the buyer's income reaches a certain threshold.
On the flip side, the Liberal Party this week announced their response to the housing crisis.
Scott Morrison's Super Home Buyer Scheme certainly has people talking; arguably for all the wrong reasons.
Watch: Ladies, Let's talk...money! Post continues below.
What is the Super Home Buyer Scheme?
A re-elected Coalition government would allow first home buyers to take up to 40 per cent or $50,000 from their superannuation to buy a home. They must also have saved a five per cent deposit for the home prior to accessing their super.
The scheme would start by July 2023, if the Coalition is re-elected.
Allowing people to access up to $50,000 would mean they have a larger deposit, meaning they would be more likely to get their hands on a property at auction. The Coalition estimates the scheme would cut the time taken to save a deposit by approximately three years.
