Your KiwiSaver funds and a grant from the government could be all you need for your first home deposit.
Yes, that’s right. Thousands of kiwi’s across the country have been tapping into this opportunity since it was first introduced in April 2015, but you may be among the thousands of others that didn’t even know about it.
If you’ve been contributing to your Kiwisaver for three years or more you may be able to apply for a first-home withdrawal to assist.
Also, you may be eligible for a HomeStart grant from Housing New Zealand of between $3,000 and $20,000.
Money for nothing is rather unheard of but its our government's way of supporting first-time home buyers into the market.
Even if you’re a previous home owner and are in a similar financial position of a first home buyer, you too may qualify.
Now is the time to start looking for your own property and start putting money into your own back pocket, rather than your landlords.
Our experience shows that your mortgage payments are likely to be equal to or less than what you are currently paying in rent.
And with house prices slowly rising across the Whanganui-Rangitikei area, it is a good time to enter the property market.
