Testimonials

5/5
"I think it would have taken me the better part of the next decade to save up a deposit. Working with BuyAssist was really easy and straightforward, and everyone was really helpful answering my stupid questions."
5/5
"I wanted the stability of being in my own property. Renting was fine but it's dead money. You're paying off someone else's mortgage. I came across BuyAssist on Facebook. Anyone who thinks BuyAssist is too good to be true, it’s actually not. It’s the real deal."
5/5
"I thought, honestly, a bit too good to be true. But I had a look anyway and BuyAssist has been really great and been really good to deal with. So I recommend that you contact them and have a chat."

Frequently Asked Questions

The BuyAssist Program provides support for eligible Australians to purchase a newly built approved property as home owners.

The program has been designed by a leading Not For Profit affordable housing provider to help make home ownership more affordable and more attainable for more Australians.

However, the BuyAssist Program is not suitable for everyone. Home ownership and the financial responsibilities that go with it have to be carefully assessed.

No. BuyAssist helps eligible buyers qualify for a home loan with no deposit. Through our government or charitable equity programs, we provide up to 25% of the purchase price of your new home to cover the deposit.

You will be the sole legal owner of the property, and will be responsible to meet all the normal costs of home ownership. 

You will need to pay the normal costs associated with the purchase of a property and residential mortgage.  This may include stamp duty, valuation and legal fees.  We will work through all the costs with you before you decide to participate.

On settlement there is a one-off program participation fee, and an annual administration and compliance fee (payable as a monthly direct debit).

 

There are several base eligibility criteria you will need to meet including:

* Be buying the property as your principal place of residence

* Meet general lending criteria

* Don’t currently own property

* Permanent resident / citizen

* Meet eligibility of the specific government or charitable equity program

The Details

The amount of support made available will typically be around 25% of the purchase price of the property.  This is the “BuyAssist Support Amount”. The BuyAssist Support Amount is provided by Investor who is looking to support home ownership. The BuyAssist Support Amount is combined with any savings you might have and a normal home loan from a lender that supports the program.

You will need to enter into a Home Ownership Participation Agreement (“HOPA”) to access the financial support.  The HOPA outlines the rules that govern how the support is provided and your obligations to us and our obligations to you.

In exchange for the support, you agree that the BuyAssist Investor (the party providing the funds) will be entitled to an agreed share of the property’s future value. For example, if the BuyAssist Support Amount was 25% of the property’s purchase price then the BuyAssist Investor will receive 25% of the property’s agreed value when the Home Ownership Participation Agreement is completed. This usually occurs when you decide to sell the property or refinance it. The same calculation is applied even if the value of the property falls.

We have a selection of apartments, townhouses, house and land packages in various locations. New stock and programs are added throughout the year. Once you have been pre-qualified, we keep you updated as new properties become available.
