About UsAt Proportunity we make home ownership possible!

Buying a home used to be an important step towards a financially stable future. Open to almost everyone. Today, for those without extraordinary earning power (or access to the bank of Mum and Dad), getting on the ladder, in a decent place, is near impossible. Especially in cities like London. If you're lucky enough to be on the ladder, it's not as easy to climb it as it used to be either. The result? Renting has become the new (depressing) normal for under 35 year olds. A generation of young people are locked out of the property market, meaning they're locked out of a future of financial stability too. We don't believe it has to be this way.

Our team works to create a product that home buyers love, providing them with insights and tools that helps them buy a home with confidence. We turn data into quantifiable insights that help home buyers make smart informed decisions, while at the same time providing them with financing solutions to help them own a home they love sooner. We analyse large amounts of data from various sources in multiple formats to understand how the real estate market evolves over time, and take a peek into future growth.

We don't expect anyone to have all the answers, but we should have a plan how to get closer to answering them. We like to learn, adapt and share knowledge with the team.
