How do I get offered a home?

Text Size:

You will receive an offer of a property when your turn has been reached on the waiting list. The time you wait for an offer of a property depends on:

  • The area you need to live in
  • The number of properties in the area and how often they become vacant
  • The type of property you need
  • The number of bedrooms you need

You may receive an offer of a property owned or managed by either Housing NSW or a community housing organisation such as Housing Plus.

When a suitable property becomes available, the Housing Plus will contact you to make an offer. Generally you will have two days from receiving the offer to inspect the property, decide whether the property suits your needs and advise the Housing Plus whether you will accept or reject the property. If you do not respond within two days, the provider will assume you are not interested in the property and it will be offered to another applicant.
