Achieving higher rental returns and securing the best tenants faster, is a step closer via rent.com.au’s via RentCheck, RentQuotes and RentReport services.

Rent.com.au, Australia’s Number 1 website dedicated to rental property, has crafted a suite of dedicated tailored service solutions for renters, private landlords and agents across the country, as it moves to creating a total rental marketplace and becoming the Home for Renting in Australia.

Consistently achieving record site visitor numbers including more than 700,000 unique visitors to the website in May, along with a continuing rapid increase in landlord listings, Rent.com.au allows landlords to list their rental property for free, access background  checks on prospective tenants and gain instant data reports, to assist with the competitive pricing of a property in the market.

According to Rent.com.au Founder and CEO, Mark Woschnak, appropriate due diligence and a more proactive approach to managing a rental investment property can significantly enhance rental returns and reduce time, financial loss and stress for all parties:

“Maximising rental property investment returns and securing quality tenants who are going to value-add to your property, can be vastly improved by being more proactive about the process, taking the time to conduct appropriate reference checks and obtain the data intelligence required for long-term success and sustainable outcomes.


“Upfront strategic planning. due diligence, strong communications and taking the time to understand the marketplace will make all the difference.”

“We are seeing an increasing number of private landlords registering on our site to access our suite of tailored product solutions such as RentCheck, RentQuotes and RentReports.

“Having comprehensive and reliable reference checking, property data and quotes prior to signing an agreement, will significantly improve a property investor’s chance to achieve higher rental returns and quality outcomes.

“The importance of background research, comprehensive national reference checking and effective communications between landlords and tenants is critical for decision making and I urge all private landlords in this country to utilise our one-stop-shop service solutions.”

Key Steps to Maximise Rental Returns:

  1. Free Landlord Listings – More Choice

In an effort to support Landlords seeking the best tenants Rent.com.au is offering landlords the chance to list their rental property on Rent.com.au for free, for a limited time.  If their property is not yet vacant, they are still able to register and put in an indicative future date and have the free listing offer extended to allow them to experience the benefits at a future date.

  1. RentReport: Know your Competitive Price

Savvy and intelligent prospective tenants are very much in tune with what the fair market rental amount should be.  Landlords who have any doubts about how much rent they should charge, or whether their property is correctly priced within the market, can access RentReport to help them price their property competitively against others in the market.

  1. RentCheck: Obtain Background Reference

A fast, affordable and comprehensive national tenancy reference service that removes the 'what ifs' from decision making. RentCheck is backed by Australia's largest credit reference agency, Veda, the whole process costs only $20 and takes only three minutes to complete.

RentCheck is essential to confirm tenants are not listed on a defaulting tenant database, or had negative court judgements made against them. This step is extremely important in helping landlords make the best decision and choose the tenant that best suits their requirements.

  1. RentQuotes – Immediate Property Management Quotes

This is a free online service for landlords who are looking to appoint a property manager. It allows landlords to obtain immediate and multiple property management quotes from local agents serving their area. 


Landlords can list their properties for free and obtain RentCheck, RentQuote and RentReports at rent.com.au.




A return refers to the change in the price of an asset or investment, usually represented in price change or percentage change.
