MurrayM:  I guess we're the ideal tenants (professional couple, no kids, never missed a rent payment, etc).


That was our experience in Wellington, we have a cat and they didn't care. We had the agents/property managers ringing us to ask if we wanted places we had seen about an hour before. 

Yup, we viewed a place in the late afternoon and by that evening we had the landlord offering it to us.  And yet everyone tells me the market is very tight at the moment...


I think it is tight also in the sense that 'ideal tenants' are few and far between.




Didn't anybody tell you I was a hacker?

We've just found a property, young professionals, cats and no kids. Really couldn't find many that would take cats, and had one where the owners changed their mind after listing an ad as OK for cats - after initially being told we were ideal for the place.

Eventually found one, managed by the owner rather than a property manager.

Not sure about the Homeads letting fees - all they seem to do is auto-reply with a phone number and leave the rest for the owner/tenant to sort out. Whereas other places charging letting fees actually are providing a service by facilitating communcation and managing the property.
