Synergy is partnering with Mirvac and Keystart to address the challenge of building a home that is not only affordable to buy, but affordable to live in.

A family will be chosen to live in a Mirvac built home, using it’s rent-to-buy* initiative, for 12 months while their energy, water and lifestyle is monitored. Throughout the project, experts in energy efficiency and financial management will work with the family to help them manage expenses and save money.

Applications now open

We are searching for a family to participate in the Mirvac Affordability Experiment.

Families who qualify for a Keystart home loan can now apply to the Mirvac Affordability Experiment. The successful family will move into the home in April 2020, when the 12-month study will commence.
