Subscribe for updates

By subscribing to our newsletter, you’ll be the first to know about exclusive opportunities to purchase South Australia’s new developments before they’re released to the market.

Affordable homes

Affordable Homes offers homes for sale to eligible households for a limited period before they’re offered for sale to other buyers.

If you subscribe, we can email you when there are new opportunities to buy in new developments under this program.

Properties include newly built houses, house-and-land packages, and former public housing properties.

All Affordable Homes Program properties are less than $381,800 and are listed on realestate.com.au and domain.com.au. Simply click the links and scroll down to see these properties.

Quick eligibility test

To be eligible, everyone who’ll be listed on the certificate of title for the home must be able to answer ‘yes’ to all the following questions*:

  1. I don’t currently own a property.
  2. I plan to live in my own home.
  3. I am a current resident of South Australia.
  4. My income is within the allowed limits: less than $75,000 (singles) or $95,000 (couples or families with up to three children), more for larger families.
  5. My assets are valued under the allowed limits: $348,500 (singles) or $433,000 (couples), higher for people aged over 55.

Further information on income and asset limits is available on sa.gov.au.

*Ineligible buyers can apply for consideration of exceptional circumstances by emailing affordablehousing@sa.gov.au

Easy process to home ownership

  1. Check your eligibility.
  2. Get financial approval — your lender will tell you how much you can afford and will give you an “in-principle” finance pre-approval letter.
  3. Search for your new home on domain.com.au or realestate.com.au and contact real estate agents to arrange inspections.
  4. When you’ve found your new home, the real estate agent will ask to see your finance pre-approval letter and register your interest to buy. The agent will give you an Eligibility Declaration form to complete and return within five working days.
  5. Sign the sales contract. Confirm finance with your lender, wait for settlement, and then the agent will give you the keys to your new home.
