15 minute Listen


Affordable housing, both affordable rent and ownership – What is it? Who qualifies for it? And what are the different products being delivered?

In this episode of Talking Property, industry-leading experts Tamba Carleton and Natasha Sarkar sit down to define what constitutes affordable housings, both in ownership and rental models, and discuss the different means of delivery in New Zealand and Australia, and further afield. As well as talking about the importance of affordable housing as part of a well-functioning housing continuum, we also touch on what needs to be done to activate this sector further.
