Bank app to simplify house hunting

A new app designed by a non-major bank aims to reduce the amount of time and money consumers spend searching for a home.

The new UrHome app by UBank is free to use and offers a “one-stop shop” service for users looking to buy property.

The launch of UrHome comes as research by UBank revealed that it takes the average Australian over six months to find a home, racking up $580 in associated expenses before an offer is even made.

The research also found that three in four Australians believe house hunting to be a major cause of disagreements with their partners and family.

“The UrHome app was created with our customers and their needs in mind,” UBank chief executive Lee Hatton said.
