How to strengthen your rental application

When a rental market has few properties but great demand it can be hard to secure a rental property.

I have compiled a few tips on how to ensure putting yourself in the best position possible to secure a home.

  • Write a cover letter introducing yourself, family & any pets you may have.
  • Request an application prior to the inspection
  • Present yourself well at the inspection
  • Have the application & 100 points of ID for each adult applying ready to go
  • List any previous real estate agency references
  • Have all funds ready to go – 4 weeks for the bond & 2 weeks advance rent
  • Be ready to move in within two weeks from date of availability
  • Let your current agency know that you are applying for properties and they may be contacted for a reference.

Happy house hunting!
