Please see the below helpful hints and tips to make your search and eventual application that much easier as we understand that this can be an exhausting process.
Finding the Right Property
The rental market is very tight and often moves quickly. With a vacancy rate of commonly under 2%, it will pay to make sure you are organised well before a) you need to move and b) before you view a property, you are aware of what is required to make a successful application.
Our Property Manager will conduct open for inspections on all our available rental properties per week. We commonly advertise these open times online as well as sending a reminder SMS all interested parties. Once you identify a property you wish to view, make sure you email our office to register your interest so we can add you to our enquiries register.
Contact our Property Manager directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07 5477 7600
