Head into Your New Home with Headstart
and the Homestart Grant
Have you been thinking about getting your first home? When it comes to first home buyers, a key decisive factor in whether to enter the new home market depends on saving up for a deposit. This could sometimes take years before realising the home ownership dream.
However, with the help of the KiwiSaver Homestart Grant, you may be able to move into your own home sooner than you think! Here’s how:
After 3 years of contributing to KiwiSaver, you may be entitled to a KiwiSaver HomeStart grant*. The grants are administered by Housing New Zealand.
For building a new home or for purchasing a section to build a new home on, the grant is $2,000 per year of membership in the scheme, up to a maximum of $10,000 for five years for each member.
The maximum value of the Homestart Grant payable is $20,000 for the purchase of a new property if you are purchasing as a couple, greatly boosting your funds for a Deposit.
This $20,000 grant allows you to build your first home to a combined section and home investment cap of $550,000 here in Christchurch and the immediate area, with our range of Headstart Homes floorplans specifically designed to be used with the Homestart Grant.
Headstart Homes floorplans range from 2 – 5 bedrooms to suit a range of needs and circumstances, and just because you’re starting out, doesn’t mean you need to compromise on size, quality or choices. We’ve put together 17 Headstart Homes plan that fit just right with the Homestart Grant scheme.
One of our most popular designs, Rolleston, features Open Plan Family, Dining, Kitchen, Scullery off Kitchen, Separate Living, 4 Bedrooms, Ensuite and WIR off Master Bedroom, Separate Bathroom and WC and complete with Double Garaging – everything that a new home needs and more.
