Applying for rental properties without references

What happens if you need to secure a rental property but haven’t rented before? Or have only rented privately?.

Here are some tips on how to strengthen your application.

Home owners – Use a current or previous selling agent as a reference. As they conduct open homes, they will be able to let any real estate know the way in which you were maintaining your home.

First time renters – Open a savings account and deposit the rent amount into there for as long as possible, a 3 month period preferred. This will act as a payment ledger of sorts and show any potential Property Manager that you can afford the payments.
