You need to pay rent in advance, otherwise your house will lock and be unusable. You can unlock it later by paying a penalty fee. The slider bar allows you to pay your rent far ahead of time -- you can see how far you will advance the date and how much it will cost before you confirm payment.

Sadly, housing chests are now more expensive than bank storage for an equal amount of space.
