Our story

How a personal quest to find
“home” became our vision

Our vision

From happy renters
to future homeowners

navCover

Home is where you find the freedom - and stability - to be you.

Free to launch your career, to find love, to create and explore your dreams, to expand and grow.

navCover

More than a crash pad. It's a launch pad.

Where you kick back and recharge. Where you dream big and jump into the unknown. At Lighthouse, we see your next move, your next apartment as the clear way to new opportunities - to a happy life.

navCover

See what we see. You in a home of your own.

Happy renters as future homeowners. Community builder. Wealth creators. We believe it starts with cash back on rent. But that's only the beginning.

Our values

How we live by our work –
and our word

Cash Flow Matters

Cash matters. Gift cards and promotions aren’t effective. Renters have bills and need real cash more than anything. Cash can go towards actual expenses or directly into wealth-building.

Renters Are Struggling to Build Wealth

Wages have trailed behind rent increases for almost two decades. The cost of living is more than just headline rental prices, as fees and other necessities have also creeped up.

Homeownership Is Vital

Homes provide a valuable source of wealth, stability, and security. For a large portion of the population, homes are not even accessible, and has been a driver of inequality.

Future Enterprises Need to Be For Good

For too long, companies extracted every last dollar out of their customers without giving anything back. 21st-Century corporations need to be held to a higher standard— everyone should be better off.
