This report outlines the shared equity models available in both the USA and UK, and explores
the comparative roles of government, philanthropy and private finance to support the
provision of schemes in these markets. The market response to both housing development and
housing finance are also considered along with an understanding of the home buyer’s

suite of recommendations has been proposed to support shared equity as a mainstream
solution to housing affordability for Australian households. A coordinated approach by
