There is a meagre offering of houses available for sale today in country Australia which suit the new Federal government's shared ownership plans.
Today we examine state by state just some of those on the market already which fit the bill.
Many hurdles will remain for keen country buyers and convincing the banks might be the biggest problem for low income earners.
The Albanese government has promised to implement its Help To Buy policy to help buyers afford to buy in the country.
The fine print
The government will help 10,000 low and middle-income homebuyers enter the housing market each year by taking an equity stake of up to 40 per cent in the house they buy.
It is only available to homebuyers with a taxable income of up to $90,000 for individuals and up to $120,000 for couples.

The government will provide up to 40pc to build a new home and up to 30pc for an existing home.
The bank has a big say as the homebuyer will need to have a deposit of 2pc and, most importantly, still qualify for a standard home loan.
Housing experts have already warned of the difficulty for low income earners being able to qualify for finance.
The homebuyer needs to live in the home as their principal place of residence.
The homebuyer will not pay rent on the portion of their house owned by the government - taxpayers will recoup their investment when the property is sold.
The incoming government has also promised to continue the existing regional First Home Buyer Support Scheme, and most states have existing schemes of their own although not as generous as Help To Buy.
Country buyers will share the Help To Buy scheme with city buyers as well under the 10,000 applicants cap.
The government has set the following price caps for country homes - NSW $600,000, Victoria $550,000, Queensland $500,000, South Australia $400,000, Western Australia $400,000, Tasmania $400,000.
