The Government's announced changes to the First Home Loan and Grant, boosting the price cap for eligible property.
So what can you get for your money around the country?
In Auckland, under the cap for existing properties at $625,000, there's a one-bedroom apartment in a central city block — but it's small, only 51 square metres.
Conversely, there's a three-bedroom house in Wellsford. However in traffic, that could be more than an hour-and-a-half commute to the CBD.
Wellington's not a lot better.
A two-bedroom, 80 square metre apartment in the central city is under the cap, but its buyer will pay more than $15,000 a year in body corporate fees.
Or you could get a house in Upper Hutt which, like Wellsford, could take up to an hour and a half in traffic to get to the city, or more than an hour by train.
In Tauranga, there's a one-bedroom apartment; a compact 43 square metres, it's on the market for just shy of $400,000.
Further south, there's a two-bedroom unit in Dunedin below the city's cap of $425,000. It's 60 square metres and comes with a courtyard.
In Queenstown, a price tag of $535,000 keeps an apartment under the city cap of $600,000 - two bedrooms, and it even comes fully furnished.
Meanwhile, in other regions you can't even find a place to rent, and there's only a handful of homes for sale.
