Need new tenants? We've got you covered
The other fees we charge only apply if you need new tenants. One is a marketing fee, and other is the leasing fee. Both are fixed prices.
A flat marketing fee that includes
- Premium advertising on realestate.com.au and domain.com.au
- Professional photography
- Branded signboard
- Property ad written by our marketing team
This is comprised of:
- Premium advertising = $350 in NSW and VIC, or $250 if your property is in QLD
- Professional photography = $150 (all states)
If you already have high-quality professional photos, we can waive the $150.
A flat $500 leasing fee that includes
- A dedicated leasing agent to manage your campaign
- Rental appraisal
- Mid-week and weekend open homes

Other agents typically charge 1 or 1.5 weeks rent. But is this really fair when the work involved to lease a property that rents for $300/week is the same as one that rents for $800/week?

No catches. Ever!
We charge a flat property management fee of $100 per month inc GST.
We don’t think it’s fair for landlords to pay percentage fees. For property management, the work required to manage a property is the same regardless of the weekly rent. Some property managers will tell you otherwise. Ask yourself if that makes sense.
For finding new tenants, we charge a flat leasing fee of $500 plus a $500 marketing fee (including GST) in NSW and VIC ($400 in QLD). The leasing and marketing fee is only ever able if you need new tenants for your property.
For letting, it’s the same amount of work to sign a six month lease or a twelve month lease. Unlike many agencies, our fee includes double-sized premium plus advertising (~$250) and measurements of key rooms.
Absolutely not! To get an indication the amazing service we deliver other owners like you, you can read our unfiltered reviews here.
For traditional agencies, property management is a very profitable, recurring revenue stream.
- Property management fees make up ~50% of revenues for most agencies.
- Typical property managers earn around $60K and manage ~150 properties.
- When real estate agents sell their companies, they are valued on the basis of their rent rolls.
Because they charge such high percentage-based property management fees, they can afford to be inefficient and hire property managers cheaply.
Our goal is to provide unparalleled service, at a much lower fee. To do this, we started with a clean sheet of paper, and built a proprietary property management platform that automates a lot of the work that traditional agents need to do manually today.
Our technology works 24x7, doesn’t need to take a vacation and doesn’t demand a paycheque. It also doesn’t forget to follow up on what needs to be done.
We know that good property management is about more than technology. It needs people to make the right decisions. That’s why we hire smart people with common sense who focus their time on the problems that only people can solve. And those people own part of the company so they’re motivated to grow the business sustainably.
We are more efficient in everything we do and we pass those savings back to you.
:Different offers a fixed fee full-service property management service for owners and operates an app for tenants to easily access their information and raise maintenance issues. This blend of technology and experienced agents ensure both tenants and owners experience a seamless renting experience through both transparency and efficient communication.
