A step-by-step guide to renting your property with Rent Star Property Management
Engage a specialist managing agent to maximise the return on your investment by acting fast in finding a quality tenant who will pay the best price.
Step 1. Accurate appraisal

Call us today on 07 3162 8951 or complete the online rental appraisal request form.
Step 2. Choosing your property manager
When selecting a property manager consider their expertise. Do they specialise in property management? Are they more interested in selling your property than leasing it? We focus 100% of our effort on effectively marketing and managing our client’s properties. That is why we consistently achieve better results through our comprehensive marketing campaigns, proactive leasing agents and effective database marketing.
Step 3. Is a corporate tenant right for you?
There is a high influx of corporate workers relocating to Brisbane and a shortage of quality residences for lease. If you have a premium or inner city property and it isn’t exposed to this market you may be missing out on thousands of dollars in rental income each year.
Partnering with Rent Star gives your property the edge by directly targeting the corporate market. Talk to a leasing agent today to see if your property could benefit from this service. Call us on 07 3162 8951 or complete the online rental appraisal request form.
Step 4. Presenting your property
First impressions count! That’s why the presentation of your property is critical to achieving a premium.
Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to de clutter as much as possible.
If you do not have easy access to your property Rent Star can inspect the property and inform you of any required maintenance as well as recommendations to help the leasing process. We can also arrange quotes and oversee any required works for you.
Step 5. Marketing your property
A strategic marketing campaign is needed to find your perfect tenant. We utilise the latest technology and harness the effectiveness of online marketing to ensure your property is exposed in the right places. As a minimum all our properties are marketed using
- Professional photography showcasing your property
- Comprehensive script detailing all the features of your property
- Exposure on our website which includes high res imagery
- Feature listings on realestate.com.au and other property websites
- Effective database marketing
Step 6. Accompanied viewings
Almost all agencies rush tenants through busy open homes and some simply hand keys out from the office! To achieve the best lease possible it is critical to arrange one on one inspections with prequalified tenants. Our leasing agents make sure they are available for accompanied viewings this also means we can use our expertise to help lease your property for the best price.
Step 7. Receiving an application
When an application is received we immediately review it by thoroughly checking the following.
- Tenant identification
- Rental history
- Work history
- TICA search
- Reference checks
Once fully reviewed we will then contact you to present the application and our recommendations to help you decide whether to accept the application or not.
Step 8. Offer agreed
Once you accept an application we will do the following.
- Collect the moving-in payment (Bond + initial rent payment)
- Arrange signing of lease documents
- Carry out the hand over
Step 9. Preparing property reports
Before the tenant moves in our property manager will prepare a detailed entry condition report which includes photos & video of the entire property. We understand the important of recording the condition of your property before a tenant moves in, this is why we ensure an Entry Condition Report is fully signed and dated helping protecting your investment.
Step 10. Completion
All done! You property manager will now issue you with your Rent Star Online Portal login details allowing you to access important information about your properties 24/7.
