About us

Futurerent is a fast-growing fintech startup based in Sydney that gives property investors their rent in advance — the simplest and fastest way to access up to $100,000.

There is A$48bn p.a. in residential rent in Australia stuck in monthly rent cycles. We’re helping the 2.2 million Australian property investors unlock their rent in advance, to finance renovations, property purchases and a range of other investments.

Futurerent is entering the scaleup stage of its journey to radically transform how property investors collect rent and access the money they need to grow their wealth. Until now, most property investors have refinanced their entire loan when they only need a small amount, which is slow, painful and expensive. The banks make borrowing $50,000 as painful as borrowing $500,000. Futurerent has created a new fit-for-purpose financing solution for property investors which unlocks the money they need, without borrowing more money from the bank.

There has been some buzz about Futurerent, we have been featured in the AFR, Domain, Australian Property Investor Magazine and Your Investment Property
