HousingFirst believes there’s no reason why community housing shouldn’t be beautiful as well as functional.

HousingFirst always has the resident in mind when developing its cutting edge design, creating liveable homes with natural light, private and generous sized open spaces and environmentally sustainable design features to minimise future running costs.

Our property portfolio of nearly 1200 homes includes 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, family townhouses ranging from 2 to 4 bedrooms, and rooming houses with single rooms and self-contained studios. Homes are available to people on low to moderate incomes including singles, couples, families and older people.

We are dedicated to providing housing that is:

  • Appropriate - homes are an appropriate size, well located, and are adaptable to meet the specific needs of the household
  • Secure - safe, long-term homes are provided to our residents
  • Affordable - rent setting is based on affordability principles, either a percentage of income or a discounted market rent
  • Attractive - homes are designed to be smart, environmentally sound, low-maintenance and integrated alongside private housing within the community
