Tips for renters

Rent in Sydney

Finding the right home to rent in Sydney is an overwhelming and stressful process.  Many contact us because they are either astounded at how competitive the Sydney rental market is, they don't have enough time to commit to daily searches and inspections, are confused with the processes or don't know where to begin because they don't know Sydney and its suburbs well. Utilising our service can overcome all of these issues. Sydney Rental Search has steadily grown over the years due to our reputation and recommendations of the reliable, no-gimmick service we offer at the most reasonable prices available in Sydney.  Since we feel passionate about helping people to rent a home in Sydney, - we would like to share some very important tips to assist you.

Renting in Sydney is Different

  • Sydney's shortage of good rental properties can prompt people to bid higher for a property

  • Unlike other global cities, your choices of suburbs to live can be mostly guided by your rental budget

  • There are even fewer furnished properties so renting furniture separately can increase your options

  • 50% of applicants feel pressured to accept a property even if it doesn't match their criteria

  • The closer a property is to the city, beaches, transport, or restaurants - the higher the rent will be

  • Some properties 18kms from the city's centre can be a faster commute into the city than one 8kms away

  • Many homes in Sydney experience mould issues that you may not be aware of at the time of  inspection

  • Several of Sydney's suburbs experience loud aircraft noise which is not always apparent at the inspection

Property Inspections

  • Applications won't be processed unless you, or a representative such as us has inspected a property

  • If a property is currently occupied the tenant can control when they want inspections to take place

  • Department of Fair Trading states inspections should occur no more than 14 days before end of lease

  • It is not unusual to see up to 40 people at rental property inspections, even when they are mid-week

  • When a property is in high demand, it will often be shown only once at the agent's scheduled inspection

  • Good properties can appear on the web one day, shown, applied for and taken the very next

  • The professional photos on web listings make properties appear much better than they actually are

It's a Very Competitive and Fast Moving Market

  • Tenants only need to provide 3 weeks' notice when terminating a lease which is why agents act quickly

  • Agents upload new listings onto the web within hours of being given notice that a tenant is leaving

  • In this automated world, off-market rental listings are rare as it doesn't benefit the landlord or agent

  • Presenting your application in the best possible way will save you disappointment in being rejected

  • When you rent in Sydney beware of fake rental listings that appear even on the most reputable websites

  • Most properties are advertised when they are available either 'now' or within 2 weeks' time

  • Agents give preference to those who can start their lease as soon as the property becomes vacant
