Homes are at their most affordable in six years - apart from in Auckland, where the average weekly mortgage is now more than $570 a week.

The Roost Home Loan Affordability report, issued today, shows Aucklanders need an average 10.4 years to save the 20 per cent deposit needed to buy a home - double the time for someone in Invercargill.

The report shows the average weekly mortgage payment on an Auckland house has risen to $572.47.
