Rent-to-buy in Sydney 🌞🚢

The record-breaking house prices in Sydney are pricing so many aspiring homeowners out of the market. Paying rent for eternity is a reality for many young professionals and families as it’s almost impossible to save the 10-20% deposit that so many lending institutions ask for. And with house prices continually rising, that 10-20% amount is increasing too, pushing the dream of owning a home further and further away. For those that want to get ahead and get a foot on the property ladder, there is a solution that offers a new path to homeownership. That solution is rent to buy property in Sydney. PublicSquare was formed to bridge the gap between renting and homeownership based on our innovative rent-to-own home product. Read More
