RentBetter partners with Rapid Building Inspections to help landlords save thousands in property management fees
Self-management rental platform RentBetter has partnered with Australia’s leading building and pest inspection company Rapid Building Inspections (part of Deep Blue Company) to offer self-managing property owners an easier way to book and manage property inspections.
Traditionally, exit and entry conditions reports have been completed by agents through in-person checks or by tenants submitting reports online. Through a first-of-its-kind integration with Rapid Building Inspections, property owners can now book qualified third-party professionals exclusively available at an affordable rate via the RentBetter platform to conduct property condition inspections and manage other critical services.
As interest rates continue to rise over the coming six months, approximately one third of Australia’s two million landlords are looking to save money by managing their own rental properties. With property owners paying an average of AU$2,000 property management fees each year, the new integration will give self-managing landlords streamlined access to professional inspectors and services at a fraction of the cost.
“This new solution delivered via the RentBetter platform will allow property owners to stay in the driver’s seat of their investment portfolio,” said RentBetter Founder and CEO, Jeremy Goldschmidt. “It’s essentially a game-changer for those who own and manage their own rental property, with a new layer of security provided in knowing condition reports can be organised anywhere, at any time through the click of a button.”
“As a leading provider of building and pest inspection services across Australia, this partnership is a natural extension of our business,” said Daniel Watts, Director at Rapid Building Inspections. “The synergies between RentBetter platform and Rapid Building Inspections allows us to deliver a compelling proposition for property owners, to help them reduce costs and gain greater control over their rental properties.”
The new partnership with Rapid Building Inspections is the first step, with the opportunity to expand to Deep Blue Company’s broader service offerings. Earlier this year, RentBetter raised AUD $1.9 million to accelerate its platform growth into new market segments and establish strategic distribution partnerships.
