This report explored constraints to homeownership for Māori in south Auckland.

This was part of a series of reports examining barriers in specific regions and while these suffer from small sample sizes, they do provide useful information about the barriers that prevent home ownership. This report consists of interviews with five homeowners and fifteen renter exploring the barriers to Māori homeownership in South Auckland. The characteristics, as described by respondents, of a family able to buy their own home consisted of a two income family with financial support from whānau and the ability to save through sharing expenses and accommodation with others. As a result, improvements in homeownership amongst Māori would require increases in employment and levels of education for changes to occur in homeownership rates amongst Māori. This is in addition to affordable accommodation.
