Light at the end of the Tunnel for Hamilton's First Home Buyers?

7th Mar 18

Whenever there is a change in Government, we are left wondering which plans and decisions will be upheld.  Thankfully the Special Housing Areas previously planned for Hamilton are set to continue under a Labour led Government. 

With the Government’s KiwiBuild scheme, there are plans to build 100,000 new, affordable homes over the next ten years.  The majority of those homes will be throughout Auckland however Hamilton has six areas that have proposals pending to become “Special Housing Areas”.  

The change in Government has led to some details being altered, such as whether a Special Housing Area must contain at least 20% or 40% affordable housing.  Other details are yet to be decided and the pricing structure is one of them.  The initial thoughts around pricing saw homes outside of Auckland being priced from $300,000 - $500,000.  However the consensus is that an affordable home is 6.8 times the median household income, which would state that Hamilton’s affordable housing would be priced from $450,000 to $490,000.
