PEO­PLE look­ing for im­par­tial in­for­ma­tion about rent­ing or buy­ing a home have a new tool at their fin­ger­tips.

Af­ford­able­Hous­ing. wa.gov.au was last week launched by the State Gov­ern­ment as a one-stop shop for po­ten­tial renters or home buy­ers.

It al­lows site vis­i­tors to en­ter ba­sic de­tails about their sit­u­a­tion to re­ceive spe­cific in­for­ma­tion about the gov­ern­ment as­sis­tance avail­able to get started in a place of their own.

There is also in­for­ma­tion on qual­i­fy­ing for gov­ern­ment loans, con­sumer ad­vice for renters and op­tions for se­niors.

The ad­vice and prac­ti­cal tips cover peo­ple in a range of sit­u­a­tions, not just those in hard­ship.

The site is man­aged by the Hous­ing Depart­ment as part of the State Gov­ern­ment’s com­mit­ment to pro­vide an on­line por­tal for af­ford­able hous­ing.
