The answer to this question is simple and it can be done, quite easily. However, there are many facets to renting out a property. It all starts with attracting enquiries.
The most important consideration, is where to advertise it.
Realestate.com.au is Australia's number one property site. It attracts millions of property seekers each month. This is. without doubt, the site to have your property advertised. However, Realestate.com.au was strictly for Licensed Real Estate Agents. That was their policy.
They now permit private landlords direct access or you need a third party advertising site, such as ReDIY, to advertise on their site. We have a contracted subscription so you can use our site to advertise on Realestate.com.au We are not acting as Real Estate Agents, but we are acting as facilitators for you to advertise. We assist Do It Yourself Landlords and Sellers. We are not interested in Managing your property. ReDIY, for a low one-off fee, will advertise your rental on Australia's #1 site, Realestate.com.au.
Rent.com.au is a dedicated Real Estate Rental site, because of this, does attract tenant enquiry. Domain.com.au is also tenant attractor, especially in some southern states. ReDIY will advertise your rental on Realestate.com.au, Domain.com.au, Rent.com.au, Rentfind.com.au, Allhomes.com.au as well as other minor sites, all for just the one low fee. Free sites, such as Gumtree, are not the best place to advertise to find a good, quality tenant in the shortest amount of time.
Once it is advertised on all the major Real Estate Sites, the quality inquiry will start to come in. It is then up to you to conduct the viewings, whether by private appointment or by Open for Inspection. You will then have a choice, to select the best possible, available tenant. Apart from conducting the normal rental and employment checks on your chosen applicant, it is wise to run a TICA check on them. This is a search of the National Tenancy Database where tenants can be blacklisted if they have a previous delinquent rental history. You can do a TICA check, with ReDIY.
Accessing ReDIY to advertise a rental property.
You simply visit www.rediy.com.au , sign up and create a username and password. This will access your own dashboard, on our site, where you enter the property description, advertising text and upload the photos. When you are satisfied, pay the low one-off fee and press Upload. The property automatically feeds to all the sites. Our site has been built with an XML feed, as an approved bulk uploader. That is how it is fed directly to all the sites, almost immediately. Your dashboard, on our site, gives you access 24/7 to make an unlimited amount of changes to your advertisement, at any time, from any device. This is particularly handy for updating Open Times.
This will assure you of renting out your property, in the shortest amount of time, to a good quality tenant. This will make the ongoing management of the property a lot easier for you. Renting it out yourself, without an Agent is an easy process, if you have the same sites available to you, as a Real Estate Agent does.
