Saving in HouseShares™ vs Savings Account

Disclaimer:

Owning property carries greater risk than saving with a bank. Past performance is not an indicator of future returns.

Savings account performance is calculated as a monthly compounding gain, without deducting any tax, based on the 6 months term deposit rate published by the Reserved Bank. The initial savings is $500.

The performance of HouseShares™ are calculated as a monthly compounding gain, without deducting any tax, based on the monthly QV House Price Index for the 'Auckland Area' region. Rental income is excluded in the calculation. The initial value is $475 as this is what $500 would be able to purchase after deducting the Application Transaction Fee (4.5%) and GST.

The last 3, 5, 7 and 10 years are the periods between April 2014 to March 2017, April 2012 to March 2017, April 2010 to March 2017, and April 2007 to March 2017 respectively.

It's easy & hassle free.


It's free to open an account.

HouseShare™ offers are published regularly, so you can keep saving in houses.

You can easily track your house savings on-line.

Owning HouseShares is about saving and not about tenants, renting or maintenance. That is all taken care of by our property partner, so while you're concentrating on climbing the property ladder, we'll concentrate on keeping things in order.
