Queensland, Australia (PRWEB) February 23, 2006
Authors, poets and philosophers alike have chronicled the importance of home. We make our homes where living is the best, and the decisions made when looking for that special place are never taken lightly. During the past decade, technology has made those decisions easier, and for Australian renters, there’s finally a place on the Internet to come home to.
The website RentalProperty.com.au has made its debut, bringing renters, property owners and landlords together in one convenient location. RentalProperty.com.au fills a major gap in the market by providing listings Australia-wide just for rental properties, unlike other websites that focus heavily on selling real estate.
RentalProperty.com.au was spawned by the frustration felt by creator Brock Hamilton, who recognized the need for a website that catered specifically to renters searching for Australian property.
“I was basically sick of the way I was being treated by some rental managers,” said Hamilton. “For some reason, a lot of real estate agents seem to take the view that rental management is something they just have to put up with in the pursuit of selling property. So I decided to find a house to rent directly off an investor, rather than through an agent. The problem I came across was that there are very few places to find private rental properties online. … So I decided to build a site where anyone can place an ad.”
Hamilton has taken that site and made it free for both property owners to place their ads and renters to find a place to call home. RentalProperty.com.au will rely strictly on non-obtrusive advertising, giving every advantage possible to the thousands of Australians who go online every day in their quest for rental property.
RentalProperty.com.au covers the entire country, including New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, and has the added convenience of providing listings for Aussies looking to share their current house, or for those in search of house mates.
Renters can take advantage of real-time vacancy lists, which outline all the details and can incorporate multiple photos of each location. Renters can use the exclusive forum interface and communicate directly with owners, while landlords have access to advertise their properties in a unique online format.
“Because it’s done in a forum style, prospective renters will be able to ask questions, which is another major thing that’s lacking on current property sites,” said Hamilton. “When you ask the agent something,
like, ‘Does this property have air conditioning?’ you rarely ever get a response, and if you do, it’s a week later, and the property is usually already rented.”
The idea of finding a place to live is stressful enough, especially when confronted with the impersonal service of most websites. Australians will save time and money through RentalProperty.com.au, ensuring that their search for a new rental home is convenient and hassle-free.
