Rent.com.au’s Renter Resume feature has surged in popularity – more than 150,000 Australians are now on board, with over 500 new resumes created each day.
Since its launch in October 2016, renters have taken to Rent.com.au’s Renter Resume in a bid to improve their chance of tenancy application success.
Designed with a one-time creation approach, prospective tenants can use their Renter Resume to apply for a property while they’re inspecting it – just with the click of a button.
Rent.com.au Chief Executive Officer, Greg Bader said the team was very happy with the take up to date.
“We always knew we would get to 150,000 pretty quickly, but to do it in less than 10 months is absolutely fantastic,” he said.
“As a product, I really think it hits that magic spot where it clearly adds value for everyone. Our customers love it for its simplicity and efficiency, and for our agent / landlord partners it offers both time and cost savings.”
Positive renter feedback
Bader said the feedback points to Renter Resume leading the industry in terms of ease of use.
“A customer can be inspecting a property they love, and with the click of a button, their pre-filled application is submitted with not only all the customer’s details, but also those of the agent and the property – no more dodgy photocopies or illegible handwriting,” he said.
Amie, 22 is a renter in Dubbo, New South Wales and said the Renter Resume and Pet Resume features were key to her success in applying for her most recent property.
“My partner and I had been applying for properties to no avail on other websites for a week or two and had no response from agents. Then I found rent.com.au – I created a Renter Resume and made two Pet Resumes. Within 24 hours of submitting my property application on Rent.com.au, I had a call from the agent approving us and our dogs into the property,” she said.
“I’m convinced it was because of going the extra step to make a Pet Resume and show we were serious about our application.”
Strong agent support
RentWest Solutions agent Michelle said their office processes hundreds of applications every week, and they’ve found Renter Resume to be a “really useful” tool.
“Renter Resume helps us quickly assess an applicant and make an informed recommendation to property owners,” she said.
“The extra features – such as the biography, photos, and supporting documentation – really allow an applicant to stand out. And the Pet Resume is a great tool because it very succinctly helps us get to know the other, furry, applicants and decide if they’re a good match for the property. Overall, Renter Resume streamlines the process for renters and is a great help for our property managers.”
