MyHome Shared Equity Program

The Tasmanian MyHome Shared Equity Program offers eligible Tasmanians the opportunity to achieve the dream of home ownership by providing a shared equity loan from the Tasmanian Governments Homes Tasmania.

With MyHome you only need a deposit of two per cent of the purchase price.

Many people have been stretched paying higher rents and saving for a deposit to buy or build a home.

If buying your own home always seemed out of reach or if your life circumstances have changed MyHome shared equity program might be perfect for you.

With MyHome, the upfront costs of buying your home are shared which reduces the deposit you will need and mortgage repayments you make.
