Queensland’s largest house builder and 14th largest nation-wide has announced its support for affordassist.com.
AffordAssist is an affordability program exclusively for first-home buyers; providing the much-needed deposit solution: First-home buyers can buy a property with no-deposit.
According to Robert Harder, CEO, of Impact Homes, “AffordAssist is an ideal fit and consistent with the company’s core values; providing new services to help more first-home buyers get into the market.”
Australia’s first-home ownership is at a historic low and declining. Real estate values are increasing at a greater rate than household incomes. Making saving for a deposit increasingly more difficult. The first-home buyer market is now in crisis! Thus putting at risk the great Australian dream of owning a home, impacting on our social-fabric and our economy. Home ownership is more than four walls, it represents; the great Australian dream:
- Family safety/stability
- Break free from renting
- Build wealth
- Funds retirements, and
- Overall less financial burden on our social systems.
The AffordAssist program is designed to be sympathetic to first-home buyers.
“It is the perfect collaboration. Impact Homes, know the industry has changed and corporations must do more to help first-homer buyers. We see duty-of-care different, in that, it extends to the entire community. And, in keeping with; ‘more than a roof over your head’ philosophy we continue to expand into new services hence our support for the AffordAssist first-home buyer program.
First-home buyers will benefit from our solid reputation and reliability which draws upon over 20 years of experience and success. We have surpassed the milestones of building over 3,500 quality homes.” Said Mr Harder.
He continues, “AffordAssist is a fair program offering a number of consumer protections, including: Fair Pricing Model; Independent Property Review (IPR); and Serviceability Assurance. With these key controls, Impact homes can help first-home buyers .”
