For BuyAssist program homeowner Alan the benefits are clear – “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”.

Current market research estimates it can take over 8 years to save a 20 per cent deposit, and when homebuyers with a deposit of less than 20 percent face paying Lenders’ Mortgage Insurance and a higher cost mortgage, many people are simply giving up on ever realising their home ownership dream.

This deposit and serviceability challenge is why BuyAssist, part of the National Affordable Housing Group, created an innovative, shared equity homeownership program that supports people without a deposit to buy their own home.
