kiwibuildThe KiwiBuild Plan

KiwiBuild is the Government’s plan to reignite the dream of homeownership by building 100,000 affordable homes over the next decade for first home buyers.

First home buyers are finding it near-impossible to find adequate properties, especially in areas such as Auckland, Tauranga and Queenstown Lakes where affordable homes are in high demand. This is the result of housing demand outstripping supply for more than a decade and home ownership rates have fallen dramatically, leaving first home buyers locked out of the market.

Where will the homes be built?

All KiwiBuild homes are available at www.kiwibuild.govt.nz

Homes are currently for sale in Whangarei, Huapai, Mt Albert, Onehunga, Otahuhu, Papakura, Pukekohe, Te Kauwhata, Christchurch, Queenstown and Wanaka, and you can view them all at the KiwiBuild website. Other developments are planned and regularly becoming available.

How much will they cost?

KiwiBuild homes are for sale at fixed prices, below the KiwiBuild price caps. In the Auckland and Queenstown Lakes region homes are priced below $650,000. In the rest of New Zealand, they are priced below $500,000.

Who can buy KiwiBuild homes?

Checking that you’re eligible for KiwiBuild is easy. You must:

  • be a first home buyer (or second chancer) with a family income under $180,000 (or under $120,000 for a single applicant);
  • be a citizen or permanent resident, or have a resident’s visa and ordinarily resident in New Zealand;
  • intend to own and live in the home for three years.

So, what’s next for KiwiBuild?

2019 will see the creation of the Housing and Urban Development Authority (HUDA). HUDA will drive transformative urban renewal by consolidating all three of the government’s large building programmes– KiwiBuild, Housing New Zealand and its subsidiary HLC – under one roof, and granting access to a range of statutory powers to better enable development.

These powers already exist, just spread between different parts of central and local government. By bringing all three programmes together and cutting through red tape, HUDA and KiwiBuild will be able to work together and ramp-up building at pace and scale, create thriving communities with quality affordable housing and great transport links.

How are KiwiBuild homes sold?

Buying a KiwiBuild home is similar to the regular market. Buyers attend display suites or open homes and work with a licensed real estate agent, and arrange financing independently with their bank or lending institution. KiwiBuild homes are offered for sale at a fixed price, but are available either by direct sale or by ballot.

Many homes are available to purchase by direct sale. Buyers deal directly with the developer or the developer’s real estate agent. KiwiBuild buyers can make an offer to purchase a home on a first-come-first-served basis.

Some homes are offered by ballot – homes are available through a ballot system when there will be a large number of interested buyers, and means every KiwiBuild buyer has an equal opportunity to buy the home.

Buyers can enter the ballot for a home they like through the KiwiBuild Buyer Portal. When the ballot closes, the winners will be drawn and notified that they have the opportunity to purchase their new home.
