What was once considered to be the Kiwi birthright, the right to own a home is out of reach for thousands of families.
Government has committed to KiwiBuild and 100,000 houses. But housing availability won’t change the fact that the cost of buying a first house is simply too high for many.
KiwiBuy – offered by community housing organisations The Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, Housing Foundation and Community Housing Aotearoa – is a proven way of giving the support people need to own a home. KiwiBuy will give momentum to KiwiBuild and offer real housing availability and affordability.
KiwiBuy aims to provide affordable pathways to home ownership for low and middle income families across New Zealand. If you’re locked out of the housing market, you’re certainly not alone! Many families who once would have expected to own their own home can’t in today’s overheated housing market without help. That’s why we’re asking the government to support KiwiBuy.
