FAQs

What are Local Ads?

Local Ads is an online advertising service exclusive to rent.com.au, which gives local merchants and businesses access to our vast audience of renters.

How much do Local Ads cost?

Local Ads cost $49 per month, per suburb. You can choose to run your ad for just one month, or 'roll' the advertisement over for multiple months, for as many suburbs as you wish.

What benefits do Local Ads offer?

Advertising with Local Ads allows you to 'zero in' on locals within your suburb (who are looking for a new place to live), as well as people (potential new customers) who are planning on moving to your suburb, serving them advertisements for your business among the property listings in their suburb search.

People searching for rentals are a captive market who are highly invested and interested in the features of their new area, especially curious about what facilities and services are nearby. It's an excellent way to introduce your business to a new set of customers, every day.

How long does the Ad run for?

Each payment of $49 runs your ad for 30 days from approval.

How long does it take to approve my Local Ad?

Approval usually occurs within 1-2 business days. You'll be notified by email when your ad is live.

How do I create and purchase my Local Ad?

Local ads are easy and quick to create and commence. Simply choose an image, write a headline and a sub-text, then submit.

Simply follow the prompts above to create and pay for your Local Ad. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at looklocal@rent.com.au or call us on 1300 032 012

Can I run more than one Local Ad at the same time?

Yes. You can purchase and run as many local ads in as many suburbs as you wish, for as long as you wish. Our Local Ad landing page gives you an easy, step-by-step process which can be completed in just minutes

Where will my local ad(s) appear?

Your local ads will appear 'in line' within the search results of rental property listings for the suburb(s) you've chosen. The Ad is designed to resemble a property listing advertisement, as this style tends to encourage higher engagement.

Can I be the exclusive advertiser in my suburb?

There are a maximum of two (2) local ad placements that can be purchased per suburb. Once they are bought, those suburbs are no longer available to place a local ad in, until the existing campaigns are cancelled or expire.

For this reason, it's best to get in quickly to occupy at least one of the ad placements within your suburb before a competitor claims the spot.

Why should I advertise my business on Rent.com.au?

Rent.com.au is Australia's #1 website dedicated to rental property and is used by more than 600,000 Renters each month to search for their new home. That's thousands of people per day potentially seeing your ad. As a Rent.com.au advertiser, you exclusively target a large, unique audience, who are local to your business.
