At Ray White Buderim, we head the largest rent roll in the area and understand the frustrations of trying to find and secure that new rental.
We understand that finding a suitable property to rent can be an exhausting process. Please see the below helpful hints and tips to make your search and eventual application that much easier.
Perhaps you haven’t rented in some time?
The rental market is very tight and often moves quickly. With a vacancy rate commonly under 1%, it will pay to make sure you are organised before you need to move. Before you begin to view properties, it’s important to know what is required to make a successful application.
Our team advertise all open times online, as well as sending out suitable listings via email. Once you identify a property you wish to view, make sure you email or call our office to register your interest prior to the open home and we will send you an SMS reminder of the inspection.
Contact our team direct at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07 5445 6088.
Here are some tips that may help you get in first:
- Set up rental alerts on real estate websites like www.realestate.com.au so you are first notified of any new listings
- Contact our office and request to be put on our rental database
