You start a business thinking this is the idea. This is what we can do for people. Then you look back two years later and realise how much it has evolved!
We had an idea
We had an idea to start a business which would provide inclusive real estate advertising. Developed for everyone, we provide cost-effective and quality online real estate advertising for rental properties, commercial properties and residential homes throughout Australia. Therefore, whether you are selling or managing your property privately or with an agent/property manager, everyone is welcome to advertise their real estate using Open4rent’s online advertising portals.
We take full responsibility for the control of the technology, developing our platforms internally. Open4rent Pty Ltd is profit-based and also focused on contributing to charities which support people in need.
Finding a purpose
Volunteering for Orange Sky Australia in 2018 changed everything!
Homelessness in Australia is growing. Open4rent Pty Ltd was started with the dream of connecting more people with homes. This grew to include a social focus of building affordable housing. It was after Lynda started volunteering with Orange Sky Australia and went to a Change the World Conference in Brisbane, that she found the information and connections to start turning Open4rent’s purpose into a reality.
Doing laundry for friends who live with homelessness made Lynda realise how important it was for Open4rent to do more. People living in their cars, sleeping rough or in temporary accommodation deserve to have homes. Too many times Lynda was hearing the same story about choices.
Integrating a social focus
Homeless friends would tell Lynda do I rent a home I can’t afford and not have a car or means to work; or do I live in my car and have money for petrol and food, and work?
Lynda realised Open4rent had to have a social focus embedded it is vision and mission. We needed to find a way to support people in need, with the dream to one day build affordable housing.
Profits from Open4rent will be used to contribute to supporting people in need, through our own campaigns and eventually affordable housing. Realising to do this we needed to think bigger, Open4rent expanded from focusing on rental properties to including commercial properties and sales of residential properties. The Open4rent Real Estate advertising portal was established to provide three portals for advertising and accessing real estate properties.
Open4rent found its heart!
