A better world — built one home at a time.

At HouseME we want to create a world where letting and renting isn’t so fraught with stress, risk, and unfair discrimination. So it’s our mission to transform residential renting, for every South African, by placing technology and data-centric decision making at its heart. We’re committed to be the smartest way to rent, for landlords and tenants alike, making the whole process fair and stress-free.

Simpler. Smoother. Smarter.

Our story

Like all entrepreneurial success stories, this one started in a garage. After experiencing the inefficiencies of the rental market themselves, HouseME founders Ben Shaw and Kyle Bradley figured there had to be a better way. They launched HouseME in 2016, and in a few short years, it has become an award-winning technology-based rental management company with a national footprint.

In a nutshell, HouseME is an online platform that takes the hassle, cost, and risks out of managing long-term residential rentals. It has reimagined the rental process from something inefficient and often infuriating, into a seamless and beneficial journey for landlords and tenants alike.

HouseME has been featured on CNBC, 702, and more, as well as nominated by Forbes Africa as one of the top start-ups to watch in Africa in 2019.
