Rent offset

Mix things up with your rental options! Choose a traditional rental model or offset the rent by asking for some additional
help around the place. Just add the weekly rent (with or without utilities), how many hours of help you need, and the rate
you think is fair. Our calculator will work out the rent you'll pocket and the hours of Rent & utilities help you'll receive.

What our households are saying

The Room Xchange is a great way to use your spare room that is unoccupied for most of the year. My house mate Li helped me with my daughter so I can go back to work and get some personal space back.
House sharing with Li has really changed my life.

We are so grateful for the support and guidance provided by The Room Xchange Concierge team. They helped us navigate through the process and ensure that our house-sharing arrangement would work seamlessly. Two years later and we're happy to say it has. Our story has even been featured on SBS Insights!

Cate and Hansraj

Author and Engineer

Our kids have grown and left home. Having someone sharing our house has filled the empty void. It also feels good knowing that the space is being used and the rent for the room helps as well.

Lou and Harry

Professional couple

Using The Room Xchange to find our housemate Sheryl-anne was simple and the benefits over the last 18 months have been huge! It's a much easier process than trying to find occasional outside help. I had more time for myself and got to spend more quality time with my son.

Angela Webster


I didn't want to go to a nursing home. I wanted to stay in my own home with my wonderful friends and neighbours in my local area.

Sharing my house with Lyndsay gave me company on a daily basis. It also gave my family peace of mind knowing someone was here with me.


Elderly retiree

I'm a busy professional, working long hours and always coming home to an empty apartment.
It's great having someone here who I can enjoy meaningful conversations with at the end of the day.
It's also good to make better use of my spare bedroom.

It’s been so refreshing dealing with the team at The Room Xchange. Their business model, genuine care factor and super friendly vibe were awesome - I highly recommend them.
