Rent.com.au (ASX: RNT) is Australia’s number 1 website dedicated to rental property, providing a single marketplace for renters, property agents and non-agent landlords.
Rent.com.au was established in 2007 and since then the team has focussed on developing the necessary technology, product alliances and critical mass of content to fully commercialise the platform. In order to access the capitalrequired to commence commercialising the technology platform, Rent.com.au was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in June 2015.
Rent.com.au currently has a comparable proportion of the property agent rental listings market across Australia relative to other leading property websites and is seeking to create a dominant market position by adding listings from the large non-agent landlords sector in order to provide renters with the greatest choice of properties in one online location.
Non-agent landlords traditionally have advertised in print media and other offline sources to attract renters and have therefore had limited services and resources available to them.
In addition rent.com.au has developed a range of value added products that can be utilised by renters, non-agent landlords and property agents to make the frustrating process of renting easier. These products include RentBond, RentConnect, RentCheck and RentReport.
