Progressive Home Ownership

Habitat NorthernHow we help

Introduction

Habitat for Humanity is a registered housing charity and Community Housing Provider. As part of our housing provision we provide a Progressive Home Ownership (PHO) Programme supporting working families into home ownership.

Our programme is based on a Rent to Own model, where families are selected through an application process. Under the terms of the programme families pay an affordable rent, paying down the purchase price of the home over time until they can afford a commercial loan from the bank and purchase the home from Habitat. The price of the home is set an affordable level and all equity gained from time of occupancy is transferred to the homeowner. No initial deposit is required. Over the past 25 years Habitat has helped over 550 families into home ownership through this model.

The Opportunity

Habitat has a number of new homes coming onto the market in the near future. Specifically, this opportunity is for four homes (2 x 2 bedroom and 2 x 3 bedroom) homes at Belmont Village, Pukekohe.

More information about the development is available
at www.belmontvillage.co.nz

Prices are fixed at $579,000 for the 2 bedroom homes and $699,000 for the 3 bedroom homes. These homes are available now, with a move in date currently of late January 2022.
