Tuesday, February 28th, 2012 - Half a Home
Gold Coast startup Half a Home is keeping the dream of home ownership alive with its innovative strategy, which pairs real estate investors with people who are looking to break into the market to own and occupy their own home.

Half a Home founder Katherine Heald’s message is that the great Australian dream of home ownership is not dead.

“Even with the recent downturn in the property market, people now face issues with housing affordability and bank lending criteria,” Ms Heald says. “That means the dream of owning your own home and land is no closer than before.

“But once people are in the housing market, increasing house prices become a welcome sign of growing wealth.”

The concept of joint ownership of property is not a new concept, but the Half a Home strategy provides a smarter approach to joint property purchasing that benefits both the investor and owner occupier.

“When you own “Half a Home”, all bank deposits, debt and costs are halved,” Ms Heald explains. “Families can now have their space back. Investors can have secure tenants. Everyone can get off the rental cycle.”

Ms Heald says there are many opportunities for both savvy real estate investors and first home buyers.

“A rising tide lifts all boats, and when property prices inevitably rise, all parties will benefit. As the name suggests, it’s an opportunity for half price property investing or ownership.”
