How to Get That Rental Property

If you are looking to rent a place, but you keep missing out to others, perhaps you need some tips from the experts. I came across a pretty good article in which the property professor gave some tips that renters should heed when trying to get that elusive rental property. Here are some of the tips from Peter Koulizos

1. BE PREPARED – You should have your application pack ready so that you can give it to the property manager at the inspection (if you like the property). Your application pack will include the real estate agency’s application form (which you can obtain and complete prior to the inspection) and your portfolio. Your portfolio should contain documents such as:
•Copy of photo ID e.g. driver’s license, passport, student ID card
•Copy of Medicare card
•References from employer/teacher/lecturer (not your mum and dad!)
•Pay slip (if you have a part time job)
•Copy of a bank account, phone account (this is evidence that you have some income and can pay some bills).
2. BE PROMPT – You should be outside the property waiting for the property manager. This shows that you are keen.
3. BE PRO-ACTIVE – Contact the property manager the following day to ask how the application process is coming along. Don’t sound too desperate on the phone but this indicates that you are keen and serious.
