About Us

Our Story

We want to help Australians achieve their housing goals in a socially responsible way.

BuyAssist is making home ownership a reality, providing real options to thousands of potential home buyers Australia-wide. With 700,000+ more Australians renting now than there were 20 years ago, we are bridging the gap — making home ownership more affordable and attainable.

BuyAssist is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Affordable Housing. National Affordable Housing believes that smart investment in social and affordable housing creates greater balance in the housing market as we strive to develop sustainable, connected and prosperous communities. 

“ Our goal is to help people overcome the barriers to home ownership. BuyAssist can help people enter home ownership with no, or a small, deposit and can also help by reducing the ongoing interest costs they would normally pay. ”
Mike Myers
BuyAssist & National Affordable Housing Managing Director

Our Journey

In 2014, National Affordable Housing began the development of a shared equity home ownership model, evolving as National Affordable Housing consulted with banks, governments and community organisations.

BuyAssist was established in 2016 to provide a fully-licensed platform for the implementation of the shared
equity home ownership model, including to support direct and third-party investment.

The BuyAssist Program is similar to shared equity arrangements that have operated successfully in WA, SA and the ACT.

However, while National Affordable Housing and BuyAssist work closely with governments, they are non-government. BuyAssist is NOT shared ownership; the home buyer owns 100% of the property.

Our Happy Clients

"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."
Kristin Rigby
New Homeowner via BuyAssist
"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."
