How Rent + Equity works
find your Place
Sign a lease with an apartment offering Rent + Equity. We pre-screen each apartment to ensure it’s an amazing place to live.
Meet your Neighbors
Join us at one of our monthly hangouts. These light hangouts are a mix of fun, connection, and lifelong learning. Kind of like the best parts of college.
We match your rent
We put about 10% of your rent in your equity account monthly, which is possible because we’re helping landlords save money by keeping their units full with the best renters like you.
You watch your Equity grow
Your equity account grows each month. Real estate is a long-term game, and we help you do that without the extra debt. Even better, it doesn’t take 3 years to “break even”, that happens in the first month.
Why it works
Good for Landlords
We save landlords money by keeping their units full of awesome, connected renters. This lowers their costs in marketing, maintenance, vacancy, and turnover. Those expenses often raise rent by about 20%. We help pass much of the savings on to renters each month.
Good for Renters
We help renters build their nest egg and community ties without needing a mortgage. We make sure their rent is the same price from any other site, as there are no hidden fees or extra costs.
Good for Neighbors
Our model only works because we provide real value to our renters and landlords. We help landlords improve their units and we reinvest in the quality of life of our neighborhoods, which goes a long way in growing our model to future neighborhoods.
