Changes to KiwiSaver

How can KiwiSaver get you into a brand new home?

On the 1st of August 2016 Housing New Zealand announced changes around their HomeStart grants for first time new home buyers, making it easier for KiwiSaver members to afford a brand new Horncastle home.

If you have been a contributing member of KiwiSaver for 3 or more years you can now apply for a HomeStart grant of up to $10,000 on new builds if purchasing individually or up to $20,000 if purchasing with another KiwiSaver member.

With housing caps of $650,000 for the Auckland region and $550,000 for the Christchurch region, a quality Horncastle Home is now even easier to get into.
