Live where you feel a sense of belonging

Mangere has a big, warm, wide-open heart. It’s a great place to live because there’s a strong sense of belonging in the community. The Mangere Development means that many of Mangere’s older state houses are making way for 10,000 new homes, bringing a fresh vibe to whole neighbourhoods and providing more high-quality, healthy homes. It will bring new people and fresh ideas to the community and give Mangere’s residents opportunities to build the future they want for themselves and their families in a place where they feel proud to belong.

  • Phase 02 INVESTIGATING

    INVESTIGATING

    You’ve dreamed of buying a home for some time. You’ve thought about it, talked it over with friends and family, and may have received some professional advice about it. Your conclusion is that buying could be possible. Now you’re in investigation mode. You want to know what you can buy, where you can buy it and for what price.

  • Phase 03 PREPARING AND APPLYING

    PREPARING AND APPLYING

    You’re getting closer to knowing where you want to live and what type of property you can buy. You may have even spoken to a real estate agent and attended some open homes, and you have an indication of how much the bank is willing to lend you. You can now get fully prepared to buy. This mostly includes making pre-applications and applications for loans and for government grants and schemes that may be available to you.

  • Phase 04 SEARCHING

    SEARCHING

    You have your finances, grants and schemes organised and pre-approval or you may even be fully approved. You know how much you can spend, what type of deposit you have and what type of home you can afford. You may have secured a First Home Loan and a First Home Grant and you may be using your KiwiSaver funds as part of the deposit to buy your home. If you’re looking at KiwiBuild, you may have been to some open homes and spoken to the builder or developer that is responsible for building them. This is the phase where your journey starts to get exciting.
