The First Homebuyer Tool

Prices Change Constantly For First Home Buyers.

With prices moving frequently it can be difficult to set savings targets or find appropriate suburbs to aim for.

We’ve looked at the lower quartile of sales results by region & applied some smarts to let you know how much you’ll need to save for a deposit. We also look at how much extra you’ll need to save based on this month’s price changes.

The Market Cools

Check out Auckland Central, Hamilton, & West Auckland to see the big changes.

Auckland central requires a deposit of $165,000, a vast decrease from its peak of $190,000 in October last year.

Wellington & Christchurch have stayed relatively flat, & Auckland’s North Shore was the only region shown that has an increase of deposit requirements.
