Shared Equity Home Buyer Helper

If you’re a single parent, older single, first home buyer key worker or victim-survivor of domestic and family violence, you may be eligible for the shared equity initiative where the NSW Government will pay a proportion of the purchase price of a property in exchange for an equivalent ownership share of the property.

The NSW Government will pay up to:

  • 40% of the purchase price of a new dwelling
  • 30% of the purchase price of an existing dwelling.

The initiative will accept applications during 2 financial years (2022–23 and 2023–24). There will be 3,000 places per financial year.

You can now apply for Shared Equity Home Buyer Helper through Bendigo Bank or Unity Bank.

As part of the application process, Bendigo Bank and/or Unity Bank will conduct an assessment to determine the percentage of equity contribution you can access.
