Your house balance is the number we show you on your house dashboard, representing whether you currently owe money or are owed money.
If your house balance is positive, it means that the total amount of all the costs you’ve bought on behalf of other people, and the money you’ve paid to other people is more than the costs people have bought for you, and the money people have paid to you.
If your balance is negative, it means the opposite!
See this page for an interactive example of how your balances change.
To see the history of anyone’s house balance, and what has made it go up or down over time, you can just tap on their profile picture on the dashboard in the app.
