Empower others to buy their own home with one tap

Support someone's mortgage dream by investing in mortgages with bunq. Mortgage investments make it easier for people to apply for and buy a home.

May 11, 2022

It has become increasingly challenging to win approval for a home mortgage from traditional banks. All over the world, first time homebuyers are finding it tougher than before to secure funding from a lender. Instead, they’re continuing to rent, adding to the investment portfolios of others instead of enjoying the opportunity to grow their own wealth and live in their very own home. bunq wants to change that, making it easier for homebuyers to secure a fair loan with reasonable terms.

Buying a House: the Challenges

Why is it becoming more difficult to buy a house? Home prices are rising, and not only that; they’re increasing but many salaries aren’t increasing at a similar rate. Stagnant earnings and higher housing prices make it difficult and, in many cases, impossible for people to secure a traditional bank mortgage.

Higher interest rates, heftier down payments, and steep mortgage payments lend little more than discouragement to people who simply want to live with their own roof above their heads. The status quo has many people scratching their heads, and trying to devise solutions to make it easier for everyone to secure affordable homes and mortgages.
