Buy back your home
Buy your home for a guaranteed, pre-set purchase price when the time is right. OwnHome is for between 2 and 7 years, but if there's a change of plans, you can also move out anytime and it won’t impact your credit score.
How does
With OwnHome, pricing is simple and straight forward.
At move-in
Initial Payment
To purchase the home, you make a one-time, upfront payment of 3% of your home’s value. 1% of your home’s value goes directly to your security deposit, which you can use to buy back your home at the pre-set price.
For a $1,000,000 home, you’d pay just $30K upfront.
Each fortnight
Rent and Security Deposit
It’s simple to build up your security deposit because it’s built into your payments, meaning it’ll grow overtime. About 35% of your fortnightly payments go towards your security deposit.
For a $1,000,000 home, that’s about $500 per week in contributions to your security deposit.
