Absolutely would be easier if your husband is citizen so he probably easily has 100 points of ID. That said, Passport is 70 straight away! 

How easy really depends on your location and budget. If you are trying to rent a mid-price apartment in Bondi just before summer theres likely to be lots of other applicants therefore someone with no rental history is going to slide down the pecking order. 

When I arrived, I found that getting to chat to the real estate agent proved a good tactic- I went to a couple of viewings with no interest in the property. 

Again, massively depends on location but if you like somewhere- its worth completing 1form which most real estate agents use, you still must view it but once you do, if you like it you have a head start on the others.
