OwnHome’s mission is to turn renters into homeowners. The company believes all Australians deserve the opportunity to build a life and family in the security of their own home, especially the 4.5m young Australians who don’t own the home they live in. With OwnHome, customers choose their dream home, OwnHome purchases it for them and they move in. Customers make simple monthly payments and anytime from 3-7 years they have the option to purchase the home at a pre-agreed price. Aspiring homeowners gain two immense benefits compared to the traditional path of renting and saving: 1) they move into their home immediately (as opposed to many years from now, if at all); and 2) they benefit from capital gains of the property.
