Getting rich off property a long-standing Kiwi traditionShare your stories, photos and videos.
Home sweet home is out of reach for many Kiwi families.
From a shortage of supply through to soaring prices locking out first-time buyers (the average house price in Auckland has hit $1 million), and all the way to increased homelessness and a shortage of social and emergency homes, the Government has struggled to get on top of the issues.
We don't have enough houses and many of the ones we do have are too expensive for most people.
So, how can we get more Kiwis into their own homes?
What do you think the solution is? Building more houses, keeping interest rates down, government subsidies?
What did you do to get on the property ladder? Do you have advice for those struggling to buy their own home?
