Did you know?

Fewer than 1% of private rentals are affordable for people on low incomes in greater Sydney.* Our tenants are people like Jo Anne and her family who were struggling to sustain a tenancy in the private rental market.

Our role

As housing affordability continues to decline, HomeGround Real Estate Sydney is committed to providing homes for people who have been priced out of the market and are at risk of or are experiencing homelessness.

We believe that homelessness can be ended through innovation, partnerships and engagement with the wider community. HomeGround Real Estate Sydney profits are invested back into the community to help alleviate homelessness and support rental affordability for low income earners.

Listen to a philanthropic landlord.

Our story

HomeGround Real Estate Sydney is part of the emerging HomeGround network created by Launch Housing in Melbourne in 2014. HomeGround Real Estate Sydney is the second HomeGround branded agency. We operate under a HomeGround licence but are not a franchise – we are an independent social enterprise of Bridge Housing tailored for the Sydney market.
