Buy or Build an affordable home

Information on buying or building an affordable house in Canberra:

Access to safe, secure and affordable accommodation is one of the most basic of human needs, and the dream of owning a home is one shared by most Canberrans.  Changes in the housing market over the past five years, particularly the sharp increases in demand, have made this dream more elusive for many Canberrans.

The Affordable Housing Action Plan aims to help Canberrans at all points on the accommodation spectrum, including home-buyers and people who would like to build their own home.

The ACT Government has developed new initiatives to make house and land packages more affordable in the ACT.  Financial concessions and home buyer assistance are also available to help low to moderate income earners who are seeking to build or buy their own home.
