How much do I need for a deposit? 

DID YOU KNOW? You can get into your first home with as little as 10% deposit through the Welcome Home Loan Package, this means if you would like to purchase a $400,000 house the minimum deposit you would need to save is $40,000. (You would also need some money in the bank to cover legal and value costs $3-$4,000 approx.)

This $40,000 could be made up of the following, $10,000 personal savings $25,000 Kiwi Saver and $5000 Kiwi Saver First Home Start Grant.

We are helping first home buyers into the market all the time with less the advertised 20% deposit with the new LVR Restrictions. (LVR simply means the lending valuation ratio or how much you owe against the property value)

How long will it take me to save my deposit? 

This can depend on many factors, how dedicated you are to your savings plan, how much you are willing to put into your savings weekly and if you’re willing and/or need to change your current lifestyle to achieve your goal.

An example;

Savings Goal:             $45,000

Current Savings:        $1,000

Current KiwiSaver:    $12,000

Current HomeStart:   $3,000

Total Savings:             $16,000

Savings Required:      ($45,000 - $16,000 = $29,000

Target Timeframe 2 years:   ($29,000 / 2 years) / 52 weeks = $279 per week to savings

Use an online savings calculator to calculate your savings plan, alternatively in our resources tab we have a savings plan template.
