What people say

The Room Xchange deals with the age-old problem of finding the right housemates, but with the application of modern personality and lifestyle matching as well as the option to receive rent for a room or offset the rent with household help. Its appeal is universal.

Ray Ellis

CEO - First National Real Estate

Home ownership is increasingly unaffordable. We need more options for people to live in decent quality accommodation co-operatively as co-renters and housemates. This is important for the economic security of all Australians. Platforms like The Room Xchange enable this using smart technology.

Jennifer Harrison

Vice President - Proptech Association Australia

I love seeing innovative solutions to complex challenges around the globe. The unique approach that The Room Xchange is taking to help households rent their spare rooms in Australia is a great example.

I've been in real estate for 15 plus years and I love that The Room Xchange adds value, solves a problem and helps renters save money. The system is new, innovative and something every landlord should consider. It adds value to their home and attracts high quality tenants who will treat their investment as their own.

Chris Bellesini

Director - Undercover Agent

The rental market has evolved so much over the years that it’s almost unrecognisable. The Room Xchange is making it easier to access millions of spare bedrooms in homes across Australia. It's such a great concept and I can't wait for it to come to Europe! We certainly need it here.

Renting is hard enough let alone renting with pets. The Room Xchange is offering a great resource to help people rent better by understanding rental laws, tenants rights and how to negotiate aspects like renting with your pets.

Lara Shannon

Host of Channel 10's 'Pooches at Play'

It's great to see a house sharing and rental platform that considers the mental health of their users as an important factor in their overall wellbeing. Working from home and sharing space with housemates can be a challenge. It was great to come on the podcast show and talk about how we can house share and work in the same space.

Dr Frank Chow

Psychiatrist - 2OP Health

The house-sharing and rental demographic is shifting across Australia. There's a new kind of renter and they're looking for more than just a temporary place to stay. They're looking for a home with people they're compatible with.

Dr Diaswati Mardiasmo

Chief Economist - PRD Real Estate

I was recently a guest on The Room Xchange Podcast where I first announced the launch of Grounded, a NFP advocacy for the development of Community Land Trusts in Australia. What Ludwina Dautovic is doing to support homeowners renting out their spare rooms, via The Room Xchange, is important work. As someone who has studied the impact of vacant land and housing over the last 15 years, it's an approach that will help ease the rental crisis in Australia, particularly in regional areas.

Karl Fitzgerald

Director - Grounded.org.au

The Room Xchange is filling a very important housing accommodation gap and has the strong potential to quickly and easily solve Australia’s growing rental crisis if it is given the level of support required from all levels of government and the private sector to increase awareness and engagement. As Australia’s most popular property shows, NovaFM’s Property Hub flagships of Realty Talk and Get Invested are happy to provide ongoing support to The Room Xchange to increase awareness of this much needed housing solution.
