With almost 60% of Australian renters impacted by COVID-19, many are looking for ways to ensure they present their rental application in a positive light.
More than 800,000 renters have now created a Renter Resume – one of Australia’s most comprehensive renter profile applications.
“Renter Resume serves as a key indicator in terms of what’s happening in the renter community,” said rent.com.au chief executive officer, Greg Bader.
“More and more renters realise that by having a well-rounded online profile that showcases their good tenancy status, they have an opportunity to get on the front foot and get into a rental of their choice.”
Streamline your rental property search and rental applications with Renter Resume
Your Renter Resume is a tool to bring your rental application to life. It helps prospective property managers find out more about you and why you’d make a great tenant.
Once you’ve created your resume, you can send enquiries or a pre-filled application form with the click of a button. Your info is securely stored, so it’s ready when you need it.
Suburb Reviews now exceeds 1 million data points
Australian renters are also placing greater emphasis on reviews and other data to get the most out of their move. Mr Bader said rent.com.au’s suburb review database had seen further growth, amassing over 1 million data points across just about every suburb in the country.
“Along with other unique data on individual properties, as well as the suburb as a whole, our suburb reviews let us present a good collective view of what a suburb is like, so a prospective renter can make a better-informed decision about where to live,” Mr Bader said.
“We built this data into our unique search filters, such as allowing renters to choose whether they prefer to prioritise lifestyle features for a property, or to use the traditional suburb/address-style search.”
