Many of us have dreamt of investing or living in Rural and remote W.A., or continuing to do so.  Well, did you know that the State Government, through its Country Housing Authority gives small business operators, self-employed people and primary producers much needed access to affordable housing finance?

Many rural residents experience difficulty in accessing readily available finance in rural and remote areas.  The Country Housing authority was established in 1998 and has helped many country people with housing finance to achieve their goals. 

The main programme offered by the CHA is the Housing Finance Access Programme, which provides loans to businesses to build or buy homes for themselves, their families and their employees.  Farmers can also improve and modernise their existing homes if they wish.

The loans are structured as a standard variable rate housing loan and can be taken over 20 years.  You can make repayments monthly, quarterly or twice yearly, depending on your cash flow.
   
The Country Housing Authority is committed to collaborating with all levels of government and works closely with its customers to develop a loan package that will suit their business and personal requirements. 

It’s good to know what if you’re a primary producer or businessperson in rural Western Australia that The Country Housing Authority can give you access to a program that can make just that little bit easier.  Give them a call on 1800 158 200 to find out more.
