HomeGround Real Estate is a not-for-profit real estate agency providing a professional property management service to landlords and tenants while reinvesting any profits back into the community.

The agency operates under highly regarded Real Estate principal Philippe Batters who has extensive experience in the real estate industry. In addition, Launch Housing has experience managing properties for 15 years. Prior to establishing HomeGround Real Estate we managed a range of private rental properties. We own and manage a number of properties around Melbourne and we manage over 300 properties owned by the Director of Housing.

As housing affordability continues to decline, HomeGround Real Estate is committed to providing opportunities for people who are at risk of homelessness due to being priced out of the market, or who are currently experiencing homelessness. We believe that through innovation, partnerships and engagement with the wider community, homelessness can be ended.
