Rent price change

    Recommended Posts

    We are looking at a rental property tomorrow . Already sent in our application online and taken ID to the local office as it seems you need to move fast here.  Just looked online at the property again tonight and the rent has increased.  Is that common practice here? Does it mean they've got a few applicants already?

    I've never known it to happen in Tasmania.  Can't speak for other states.  I'm very surprised if it has happened up your way.  There is a huge rental demand down here in Hobart at the moment but I didn't think the same situation existed on the north west coast.

    Only ever rented in Sydney which is very competitive. Would see queues of people outside the nicer properties prior to the viewing . For very popular properties common to offer more than the advertised rent but not seen the on line price go up. Maybe the agent made a mistake and listed it originally at the wrong price.

    If it is an open viewing you will get a good indication of level of interest by how many people turn up.

    It's funny because I've been watching the rental market for months before we got here and houses seemed to be on for quitea while before it rented out. Last week we rang up about newly advertised ones and they'd already gone!

    There's probably a reason for some of them to be advertised for a while.  You really have to see for yourself by walking into a place just what you are getting for your money.

    Are you still looking in the Port Sorell area or further afield as well?  I wonder if there's a "reverse snowbird" phenomenon happening up there?  Retired people spending the summer down here, then going back to the Mainland in winter?  (Happens in reverse in our winter months).

    Well god.only knows what the price increase was for....it was absolutely appalling!  I wouldn't have lived there if they'd paid me the rent!! In an awful state and really strong urine smell in one bedroom! ! Back to the drawing board.

    Disgusting!  How they have the nerve to rent out a place in that condition is beyond me and to increase the rent - what a joke!  You would think the real estate agent would have a word with the landlords.
