Live where you can get around Auckland with ease
Be part of a renewed Roskill. We’re building 11,000 new quality homes in the greater Roskill area over the next 15+ years. It’s a major transformation that will include a mix of state homes, affordable homes and general market homes, and bring a fresh vibe to the streets. But this project isn’t just about building homes. We’re renovating our neighbourhood parks, public spaces, walking paths and underground infrastructure. Roskill is right at the centre of Tāmaki Makarau and the development will mean more people can enjoy the great location, work and recreation opportunities, schools, parks and eateries that these thriving neighbourhoods offer.

This mostly includes making pre-applications and applications for loans and for government grants and schemes that may be available to you.Read more
Phase 04 SEARCHING
SEARCHINGYou 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.Read more
