First Home Loans

First Home Loans are issued by selected banks and other lenders, and underwritten by the Government. All KiwiBuild homes at Waimana Rise meet the house price cap for a First Home Loan. To find out if you meet the criteria for a First Home loan talk to one of our Agents or Brokers or visit the Housing NZ website..

First Home Grants

If you're a first-time home buyer, or a previous home owner and you've been making regular KiwiSaver contributions for 3 - 5 years, you may be eligible for a First Home Grant of up to $10,000. You can get $2,000 for each of the 3 (or more) years you've paid into the scheme. To find out if you meet the criteria for a First Home loan talk to one of our Agents or Brokers or visit the Housing NZ website.

KiwiSaver first-home withdrawal

If you have been a member of KiwiSaver for at least three years, you may be able to withdraw all, or part, of your savings to put towards buying your first home. At least $1,000 must remain in your KiwiSaver account. You can contact your KiwiSaver provider to apply (our Agents and Brokers can assist you with this).
