Discover the home your rent could’ve bought you

Too often renting is unaffordable. Week after week, month after month, rent is emptying your wallet of money that could’ve gone towards a home of your own.

Help us speak out about renting!

But how much have you spent? And how far could it’ve gone towards a first-time home? Use our Rent Calculator to find out.




Enter your details to find out how much of an average first home in your area, your rent could’ve gone towards.
