Gumtree -v- Major Real Estate Sites.
Gumtree is a great site, one that most of us have used at some time to buy or sell. The question is, “Is it the site to seek a property for rent?”. We hear, over and over again, from Private Landlords that the quality of the tenant applicants is poor from Gumtree. When tenants seek to find a new rental property, they look on the major real estate sites. They are aware that these sites have 99% of the available properties. They are aware these sites are where the agents advertise. They are also aware that all Agents will conduct a search of the National Tenancy Database, with every application. Could this be the reason that some tenants are looking on Gumtree ? – to avoid a Tenancy check.
The Major Real Estate sites for Rental Properties.
Realestate.com.au is Australia’s #1 site, visited by thousands of potential tenants every day.
However, to access the site, you need to have a Real Estate Licence and pay a subscription. They do not permit Private Landlords direct access to their site. Private Landlords, need a third party site, such as ReDIY, to advertise their Private Rental Property on Realestate.com.au.
Domain.com.au is also a much visited site, mainly in the Southern States. They do permit access for Private Landlords, but at a higher cost. This is paid in 30 day increments and is only for the domain site. ReDIY charges less and gives access to 10 sites, for Private Landlords and the advertisement remains on all sites until the property is leased.
Rent.com.au and rentfind.com.au are dedicated rental property sites and do also attract tenant enquiries. ReDIY gives Private Landlords access to these sites, as well, to advertise their Private Rental Property, without and Agent.
ReDIY has the alternative for Private Landlords to lease property privately, minus the Agent.
Renting property privately is the Landlords Choice. They have made the conscious decision to be a DIY Landlord, no Agent, no Let fees, no ongoing management fees. They have a vested interest in selecting the best possible tenant. One that will pay the rent on time and look after the property. By Leasing privately, the Private Landlord meets the potential tenants at the inspection, giving them a chance to assess them. The private Landlords also conducts their own periodic inspections so they can see the property themselves. They are not reliant on information supplied by a Property Manager.
In order to make the self-management of the property a stress free one, the Private Landlord needs to select a tenant wisely. By advertising on the Major Real Estate Sites, the Landlord will have choice. The choice of selecting the best possible tenant, in the shortest amount of time.
ReDIY has extra features for the Private Landlord.
As well as access to advertise their Private Rental Property on the major Real Estate Sites, the Private Landlord can receive Tenancy Applications from Potential Tenants, through the property dashboard on the ReDIY site. This is an efficient and easy process. To get Reference checks back from previous Rental Agents/Landlords and employees has been made automated with ReDIY. This makes the Application process very easy for our Private Landlords.
ReDIY has the optional extra for a Private Landlord to conduct a TICA check on their chosen Applicant. This will check that the Applicant has not been black listed for previous delinquent rental history.
Therefore, the alternative to Gumtree is ReDIY, for Private Landlords to advertise on the major sites, attract lots of enquiry, select the best possible tenant, manage the rental property privately, without an Agent and save hundreds of dollars with no let fees and no ongoing management fees.
