About Aera

We're building an accelerated savings and home ownership product to level the playing field for first time home buyers. Our end goal is to get Kiwis who would have had no problem getting into a house 30 years ago into their first house.

Feeling disenchanted with the housing market? We're with you. We'll be working with a core group of early members who will have access to our Accelerated Home Ownership products and help shape Aera. You can apply for membership here.

Proudly based in Aotearoa New Zealand

We're proud to be based in Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland, and prouder still to be building solutions for Kiwis for whom the old system doesn’t work.

As part of our work, we're also looking to tell the stories of individuals and families in Tāmaki/Auckland with good incomes looking to purchase their first home, but finding the deposit or financing hurdle overwhelming. If that sounds like you, please fill out this form and we'll be in touch.

We're not a bank

We’re going beyond what banks offer, to help kiwis that the banking system doesn’t work so well for.
