“I’m applying for a property. How can I show the landlord / agent that I can meet weekly rent payments?”
We asked the Managing Director / Licensee at Investors Edge Real Estate, Jarrad Mahon, for his advice.
“The easiest way is to give them a copy of your payslips,” Jarrad said.
“The rule of thumb that most agents look for is that your rent is less than one-third of your household income.”
Jarrad said showing agents your savings will also give them more confidence about your ability to pay the rent.
