We have a simple mission

To help anyone achieve their homeownership goal QUICKER using technology.

Our Story

The RenterBuyer story was born out of a personal need.

Nothing sucks like being stuck renting when you really want to own. We know first-hand how exceptionally hard it is if you belong to the ‘underserved middle’ with good income to comfortably afford rent payments but still can’t get a mortgage due to being unable to build the right deposit, credit score or being self employed.

Our goal is to reduce the time to own, and make homeownership more accessible and affordable for the many, not just the few using technology. We match you to helpful suggestions and product offers so you don’t have to do it yourself. Everything you need to own quicker, all in one place. For FREE.
