OSQO is a marketplace for mortgage deposit bonds, the smartest way to fund home deposits

Bond Buyers get the upside without buying property

Investment in high growth residential real estate markets is accelerating around the world. OSQO gives bond buyers easy, low cost exposure to these markets without the need to buy a property

Homebuyers get the home they can afford now

Homebuyers in high growth markets are falling further behind the longer they wait to save for a deposit. OSQO gets them onto the property ladder without paying lender's mortgage insurance

Banks lend more responsibly to qualified homebuyers

One in five homebuyers don’t have a 20% deposit available to qualify for a regular mortgage. OSQO helps banks by making home-buying more accessible and keeping loan-to-value ratios at 80%

How OSQO works

1
2
3
1
Homebuyers register their campaign and invite friends and family to invest
2
Investors can find properties that match their investment criteria and take a stake in them
3
OSQO formalises the debt arrangement between the Homebuyer and Investors in the form of an OSQO BOND

Homebuyers pay Bond Holders interest quarterly at their mortgage rate and both share in the capital growth over 5-7 years
