Why pay for your bond now, when you can pay it off over time?

Our research also reveals a key insight: The biggest struggle renters have in the moving process is coming up with the rental bond.

Paying a few weeks in advance, combined with the burden of hefty moving costs can be a stretch on many budgets, especially when the bond hasn’t yet been returned from a previous rental.

Expanding the family or moving to a more expensive suburb can induce stress when combined with unwanted financial frustrations like paying the rental bond. Many renters simply prefer to save their money for other things in the moving process.

Queensland renter Donna Sooalo was in the process of moving home when she came across rent.com.au’s product RentBond. Looking for immediate financial assistance, RentBond, an easy and innovative way to have the bond paid upfront with three to six months to pay it off, fit the bill.

“It was great timing,” Donna said. “RentBond was easy to apply for and saved me an enormous amount of hassle financially while I moved from one place to the next. I’d recommend RentBond to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation going forward.”
