Make the most of your retirement with less stress, and a whole lot of fun with SBS Unwind, a Reverse Equity Mortgage loan. The idea is simple – homeowners aged over 60 stay in their house but free up some money from the property to live their life.
Use the money however you like, while the flexible loan means regular payments aren’t required and you can repay all or some of the loan at any time.
For more details visit our sbsbank.co.nz/, contact your local SBS branch or call 0800 727 2265.

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.

Watergate, Corngate, and now – Gategate?
Police have been investigating the mysterious theft of eight wrought iron gates from around Dunedin in recent weeks.
While the case was not closed, police confirmed half of the gates – which may have been targeted to sell as scrap – had been recovered.
Acting Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond said some gates were recovered and returned to '’their very thankful and appreciative owners'' on Thursday.
