Looking for a new rental can be a nightmare.
Especially when you live interstate or overseas.
You’ve spent entire days travelling so you can attend inspections, wasting time and money looking at homes that are nothing like their online descriptions.
And since you don’t live in Melbourne or Sydney, you don't know the suburbs or the local rental market. Should you look for an apartment close to work? Or rent a house further out, closer to schools?
You're competing with dozens of people for each property. You’ve submitted so many applications, but you get no responses. You’re beginning to wonder whether the agents give preference to anyone with a local rental history.
You've got a deadline for your relocation: a new job, a place at uni, family commitments.
The stress, the cost, all that wasted time - it might be worth it if you'd found your perfect rental.
But you're getting nowhere.
We can help you.
We're Ausrental, and we're rental advocates.

Leave the stress of finding your new rental to Ausrental.
After my initial excitement of receiving a job offer to move from Canberra to Melbourne the panic set in. I knew it was going to be difficult to find a place in January but I couldn’t imagine how hard it would really be.
When I made a trip down to inspect houses and realised I was just one of many, many people looking for the same thing, I became very nervous about whether I’d be able to make the move in time.
With Ausrental I secured a property within a few days.
Codie even met me at the property out of hours and welcomed me to Melbourne and my brand new apartment.

Director, Ausrental Melbourne
Working in real estate rentals, I saw how often people who lived interstate and overseas weren't approved, only because they had no one who could inspect a rental property on their behalf.
What they needed was a rental advocate with local knowledge and connections who could make the process stress-free. Someone who offered an affordable alternative to wasting time and money on inspections that led nowhere.
The idea of Ausrental was born.
Director, Ausrental Sydney
When my partner and I decided to move back to Sydney, we dreaded looking for a rental interstate. We're lucky, we have family there, but imagine flying to a city you don’t know, with no one to help you. Where do you even start?
You're wasting so much time and money on travel, always hoping you’ll secure a rental while you’re there. If you don’t, you’re back to square one.
I'm thrilled that I can now help you find your new rental home in Sydney.
