For landlords who do not like real estate agents, a new service -- Rent My Estate -- allows landlords to list on real-estate.com.au. It provides a good interface for landlords to create and manage online advertisements.
Where the rent is about $650 a week, an agent will typically charge more than $4,000 a year for property management services. Most agents, in my opinion, do a poor job on the rental side. So if you have the time and skills, and live near your rental property, you can save a substantial amount and get a better result using Rent My Estate.
