MFAA Prosper : Mortgage and Finance Brief 14
Mortgage & Finance brief 11 MFAA comp targets first-home buyers The MFAA has launched its first- ever competition for consumers, specifically targeted at first-home buyers saving for a deposit. Saving for a first home deposit involves sacrifices. First-home buyers commonly take lunch to work, go on cheaper holidays and eat out less. The MFAA competition is giving consumers the chance to win a $1500 ‘fun fund’ that they can spend on the luxuries they’ve been missing out on. The campaign is being delivered via the Essentials of Borrowing Facebook site and asks consumers to name the luxuries they’ve been going without to save money. Consumers are also being given information about MFAA Approved Brokers, and are encouraged to seek out a broker in their area through The Essentials of Borrowing website. MFAA members are also publicising the campaign on their websites and social media networks. A banner ad that can be uploaded to members’ sites is available from the MFAA on request.
