Advertising your property

Advertising your property is easy and can be completed through myRent in just few minutes.

For $50 your property will be advertised on, OneRoof, Facebook, Trovit and, and it will be listed on Trade Me and for an additional $140. This is cheaper than advertising on Trade Me as a private advertiser (usually $99-$179) and with an added bonus of the Premium Listing upgrade (normally only available to agents). Moreover, individuals cannot even access and OneRoof. Your advert will remain on all sites until your property is rented - there are no renewal fees. You will also have a range of options to promote or feature your advert on either Trade Me or site. These options provided directly by Trade Me and

To advertise through myRent, you will need the following details:

  • Basic property details (address, number of beds and baths, weekly rental etc)
  • 5 Photos of the property
  • Headline and description
  • Card to make payment


Enquires from prospective tenants will be automatically sent to your email. You can then arrange open homes or viewings to show potential tenants around your property.

There are significant advantages in performing the viewings yourself because you can determine the suitability of tenants and start your vetting process. No one cares about your property as much as you, so being in control will ensure you get the best possible tenant.


Move your rental process along quicker by using myRent online applications. Tenants apply to rent your property directly from your listing and create an extensive, secure application. We make it easy to view, decline and accept application straight from myRent dashboard. Due to competition in the rental market, some tenants choose to submit a formal application before viewing a property. Although landlords can't ask tenants to complete applications to simply secure a viewing.

Tenant checks

Found your potential renter? Get a complete picture by using myRent thorough tenant checks. Our checks include Identification check, Credit Check, Court Judgements, Insolvency Check, and Tribunal Orders Checks, Employment Check, Previous Landlord Check and personal Check. We collect and present all the information, you make all the decisions.

Do I have to do my own viewings?

Whenever we talk to landlords, they tell us that doing their own viewings is a big advantage of self-managing given the small amount of effort it takes every few years ensures you get the best quality tenant.

Within the constraints of our current service myRent is not currently able to provide a property viewing service. As our service expands, however, we will offer options to landlords who are unable or unwilling to complete viewings themselves. Currently, the best option for you as a landlord (if you are unable to conduct a viewing yourself) is to get a friend, family member, or tradesman to help out. Alternatively, you could hire an agent simply for the purpose of finding a tenant, but then use myRent's $17 property management service to manage the tenancy.
