Shared home ownership. Perfect if you don't like sharing

The Housing Authority have a range of homes available under the scheme and Keystart provides the SharedStart shared equity home loan to qualified applicants. Depending on your income and household size, the Housing Authority will co-own up to 30% of a property with you. So you will be paying up to 70% of the property, but the home is 100% yours!
Under the shared ownership scheme, available properties are listed on the Opening Doors website and include newly-built homes and off-the-plan properties in a variety of areas around Western Australia .
