Mortgage Mates is passionate about sharing because of the long term, positive impacts it can have for our Mates in terms of financial rewards, social connection and housing affordability. In particular we are championing the ability to own your own home because of the additional benefits it brings, but we know for some people buying a house isn’t possible right now.
We are here to say to say that’s OK! Mortgage Mates isn’t about everybody having to own the own home, it is about providing everybody the ability to do so.
That’s why we have added some additional information to the website, and updated the searching options to our algorithm, to let people sign up as ‘maybe mates’ to begin with.
Maybe Mates are people who are looking to enter the rental market in a shared environment, interested in co-live with someone else before hopefully going on to own a home in the future.
Maybe Mates allows our users to match based on the same houseMate preferences (are you a dog or a cat person) and housing needs (such as the location and type of property you want) but to rent instead of owning!
