We call it co-ownership. It’s an easy and exciting option for home buyers where we partner with you to purchase a new home. It gets you a foot on the property ladder and the security of your own roof over your head, without the stresses of renting or anxiety as house prices continue to rise.Read More
It’s simple. You buy a portion of the property you can afford now, and we help with the rest. You pay a charge on our portion and after five years, you can buy our share when you are able to. With our help it really is possible to step into your own home today and create the future of your dreams.Read More
If you’re eligible, we’ll contact you to discuss your ownership plans and explain our process. We’ll introduce you to a bank in the YouOwn programme and help you to obtain a home loan.
Together, we sign the sale and purchase agreement as co-owners and pay the developer a deposit. We sign a legal agreement that specifies our joint rights and obligations.
We help you complete documentation to withdraw any KiwiSaver funds (if applicable) and you sign the loan documents with the bank.
The balance of the purchase price is paid, the bank issues a mortgage over the property and you move in!

It's been a great – hassle free journey for us thanks to you, Greg and co.
“Our kids are saying, this is our forever home. And they’re right.”

YouOwn has partnerships with reputable and established New Zealand builders to enable you to purchase a new home. Check out some of our properties.
We’ve teamed up with our friends at BNZ to help make shared home ownership a reality for more Kiwis.
