  2. 2. #1 Always personally inspect the property. Do not rely on photos or video walkthroughs, they can be good to narrow down your choices, but always have a look at the property yourself.James Limnios 2012 “Top Ten Tips For Renters”
  3. 3. #2 Contact an agent in the area you want to live in. Your agent should know the area well, so make sure you speak to an agent who specialises in the area you are interested in.James Limnios 2012 “Top Ten Tips For Renters”
  4. 4. #3 Research rental prices in the area. Have a look at realestate.com.au or reiwa.com.au or similar, to gauge the prices in your chosen suburbs.James Limnios 2012 “Top Ten Tips For Renters”
  5. 5. #4 If you are a first time renter, or the market is competitive; prepare a renters resume. Stand out from the crowd by showing up fully prepared to be judged, save your landlord some time and show that you mean business.James Limnios 2012 “Top Ten Tips For Renters”
  6. 6. #5 Ask your agent or landlord pertinent questions. Ask whose responsibility the gardening is, what payment types they offer for rent payments, how likely lease renewal will be.James Limnios 2012 “Top Ten Tips For Renters”
