Analyst Canstar has named Westpac the best provider of loans for first home buyers in 2012 in its annual review.
Canstar said in a statement Westpac provided "a range of product features, flexibility, competitive rates, loan affordability and the ease of access to online resources."
It reviewed 311 products from 70 lenders nation-wide.
Tony MacRae, Westpac's general manager, mortgage broker distribution, said the intermediary channel was crucial to its success in securing the award for the third time in five years.
"It's the personalised service and advice from our broker partners that our first home buyer customers value," Mr MacRae said.
Meanwhile, Westpac announced an extension of its Spring Home Loan Offer until the 2nd of November to "celebrate" the victory.
This includes a 5.54% fixed rate on its three-year home loan.
