Start owning.

1. Move in for just 3%

Lock in your dream home for just 3% of the home price, which you can use in full later as your home loan deposit. With PublicSquare, there is no upfront bond, Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI), or stamp duty.

2. Continue building your deposit

Imagine you pay $600 in rent each week. Just add an additional 50% more ($300) as your weekly contributions. Along with your 3% Kickstarter, you'll be on your way to owning your own home.

3. Switch to home loan when ready

Once you've built up enough deposit, you can switch to a home loan and complete your purchase using  lender of your choice. You control the timing, with the option to make the transition at any point within a 4-7 year timeframe. And If you can't get approved for a home loan, our future mortgage guarantee will allow you to sell the home and recover your contributions without paying a sae commission. T&Cs apply.
