Rent your home
before choosing
to buy.

The idea is simple: lease your home while you save to buy. Your rent is agreed up front and your future purchase price are fixed, giving you stability while you save. All while having the freedom to leave the lease or decide not to buy.

  1. Secure five years of agreed rent, with an option to buy at the end.
  2. Your homes future purchase price is fixed so you have a set target to save towards.
  3. Begin your savings journey with our opt-in financial coaching service while we spend the next two years building.
  4. Call the removalists and make yourself at home, alongside neighbours you know, building a community together to last.
  5. Fast forward five years. Still loving it? Make the keys your own! For that original fixed price. Work, love or life taking you elsewhere? No worries, freedom to leave with nothing to lose.

Meet Fenella
and Lee

Fenella and her husband LeeFenella and her husband Lee
Fenella was so desperate to buy a house, she spent more than a month on a deserted island as a contestant in last year’s Australian Survivor reality TV show.
Fenella and her husband, Lee wanted to stay in Kensington — “It’s two stops out of the city and yet has a little country feel to it” — but real estate prices here made their dream of home ownership feel like a fantasy.
Then the couple heard about the Assemble path to home ownership and are set to move into 393 Macaulay Rd, Assemble’s first Kensington project in 2021.
“The idea of trying before you buy and knowing what we are saving up for makes everything a bit more attainable.”
