Whether you are a first-time renter or someone who is relocating to another suburb or state, the process of renting a property can be challenging.

Just the mere thought of putting together an application that is appealing to a real estate agent can be daunting. But that’s why more Australians are choosing to rent with property management apps like Instarent.

Instarent has digitised and automated the key processes of property management, all in an easy-to-use mobile app.

It allows the tenant to have clear communication with their landlord, as the tenant can easily call, text or email from the app directly to their landlord, cutting out the middleman and saving time and money.

As we are steadily heading towards total digitisation of our lives, online banking, emails, and the cloud means you no longer need to use paper at all for many common tasks – not only good for the environment, but also just super handy, for both the landlord and the tenant to go completely paperless.


As for backup and recovery of data, at Instarent everything is simplified. Having everything automatically stored online means you can not only access critical information anywhere in the world, but it is also backed up and stored safely for future use.

A tenant is also able to set up automatic payments and get notices when an inspection is requested by the landlord. They are also able to schedule repairs using the property platform.

We spoke to one of Instarent’s tenants to find out how he’s found the user experience of our property platform app.

One Instarent’s tenants, Nick said that deciding to go with Instarent was the best idea he’s had.

From moving straight out of his parent’s home, he wasn’t sure where to start with he rental process and had zero rental history.

But Instarent was able to make the process easy for him and streamline the process, find him a property, help him get approved and simplify the entire process.


Q: How long have you been with Instarent?

A: It’s been three months now.

Q: What was the process like signing up to become a tenant on Instarent? Was the app user-friendly?

A: It was incredibly easy. Yes, the app is so easy to use because of its clear design and functions. It’s very self-intuitive so I wouldn’t think anyone would have any issues navigating their way around it, even someone more senior.

Q: What made you choose Instarent?

A: Instarent was the first place I went to when I decided to move out from living with my parents. I used to see first-hand my parents having to deal with difficult agents and landlords. With Instarent, the process is fast, easy and simplifies the moving out process. I have had clear communication with my landlord using the Instarent app, via mostly just calls and texts. It’s all logged on the app, so I don’t have to search and scroll through hundreds of emails to find the information or details I am looking for. It really does take the stress out of renting.

Q: How does this compare to going through real estate agents?

A: My friends who go through agents find that it’s more time consuming to get an answer when they attempt to get a hold of their landlord to repair things in their property. I think being able to have an app where there’s clear communication between yourself and the landlord, it just makes the process so much easier. I would highly recommend.
