Join a Niche to Tell us What you Want

After joining a niche, users select from a menu of specific choices and preferences.

Citiniche empowers you to be involved in the design process of your new dwelling and provides the tools to express your needs and preferences in a way that our development partners can use to propose projects that are right for you.

In addition to identifying your basic housing requirements such as number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, suburb, price range, etc. you can also let us know about the specific features and attributes you are looking for in your new home.

To do this, users pick from a menu of choices that range across four categories: location, the services that are important for you to be near; internal spaces, the features you want to see in your dwelling; design features, the specific features that will make your building unique; and, shared features and services, those you will share with others.

When you join a niche, you are given 100 points that can be used to prioritise the things you want most.  With each choice, you allocate either 5, 10 or 25 points depending on how important that option is to you.

Unfortunately, Citniche can’t give everyone everything they want, so this process allows us to see what is most important to people.  It helps us balance the aspirations of the niche members with the realities of delivering viable housing projects.

The more users that sign up to a niche, the better chance we have of helping to create the housing people want, so join a niche today to tell us your ideas and preferences.
