Affordable Housing Models

To deliver on our mission to facilitate affordable housing outcomes, we apply contemporary commercial business practices that deliver affordable rental housing and home-ownership.

We have an intimate understanding of the housing market, community needs and government policy, further strengthened through our knowledge partnerships to drive research and development, and contribute to evidence-based policy and innovation in delivery. When creating opportunities to improve housing outcomes for the Australian community, our business development team works to align with the right industry, financiers and government departments in partnerships that deliver on our vision and mission. Our success is founded on our ability to facilitate effective partnerships, ensure viable business models, deliver agreed outcomes and execute delivery with reliability.

Over the past decade, we have partnered with many of Australia’s iconic development companies, including Frasers, Lendlease, Mirvac and AV Jennings along with many other large and mid-range developers and builders.

Investment into affordable housing has flowed via three of Australia’s big 4 banks and via specialised credit unions and non-bank lenders. Currently we are working with a number of Superfunds and Institutional investment partners to provide scaled up opportunities into the future.

Governments have supported our efforts through a mix of Commonwealth & State Tax Incentives, Government subsidy and land allocation.

The National Affordable Housing Group consists of 6 specialised companies and 1 Joint Venture SPV. The Group has a reputation for innovation, commercial expertise and strong networking

Above all NAH is a reliable and ethical partner with an excellent track record of delivering agreed outcomes on time and on price.

A well regulated-low risk partner

National Affordable Housing is a Tier 1 provider under the National Regulatory System for Community Housing.

We are regulated through the Australian Charities and Not For Profit Commission as well as ASIC.

Our Shared Equity Company, BuyAssist Australia operates under an Australian Credit Licence.

We have all the required Corporate Real Estate Licences.

Our mission is to provide practical solutions for those in need across the housing continuum with particular focus on affordable rental and affordable home ownership models.

We are committed to utilising and creating housing products which provide pathways and stepping stones that bridge the gap between social and market housing. We are actively engaged in creating new models and partnerships to provide affordable rental housing, below are some examples:

Affordable Rentals Victoria

Towards the end of 2019 we contracted the final 19 apartments from a 100 home acquisition for social and affordable housing in Melbourne alongside our Joint Venture partners Common Equity Housing Ltd (CEHL). Affordable Rentals Victoria (ARV) is an innovative special purpose vehicle (SPV) that provides a model for the future, but on a grander scale.

BuyAssist Australia

Our fully owned Shared Equity Home Ownership vehicle, BuyAssist Australia, has only 12 pending sales to deliver to complete a 100 home shared equity pilot with the Victorian Treasury. Operating under an Australian Credit Licence and with approved lenders ready to scale up, BuyAssist is now a proven platform that can be utilised by developers, community and government to help more Australians buy a new home.

We have acquired an additional property management portfolio and now provide over 430 affordable rental homes in Victoria from our office in Moonee Ponds. This has increased from just 70 only two years ago.

BuyAssist is also working on a number of developments in Queensland and aims to expand into NSW and South Australia in 2020.

We are shortlisted for a number of government land projects and we expect further opportunities to partner with developers and investors around government land releases.
