Looking to buy a transportable home but wondering how to finance it?

Well Westpac might soon have the answer! 

The bank is changing the way it funds prefab housing and is launching a new pilot programme where it will be easier for builders of prefab houses to get finance.

"This is a major step towards improving home affordability, especially for first home buyers," said Westpac NZ chief executive David McLean.

"It will move prefab housing from sitting in the too-hard basket to being a viable choice for lots of Kiwis."

McLean hoped the bank's pilot would make borrowing for a prefab house "streamlined, simplified and stress free" for builders and buyers.

Now that’s what we like to hear!
