RentBetter, a self-management rental platform, has announced a partnership with Rapid Building Inspections, a leading building and pest inspection company in Australia, to offer property owners an easier way to manage property inspections. In the past, agents would perform in-person checks, or tenants would submit reports online for exit and entry conditions reports. With this new integration, property owners can 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. This unique partnership provides self-managing landlords streamlined access to professional inspectors and services at a fraction of the cost, especially as interest rates continue to rise over the coming months. Approximately one third of Australia’s two million landlords are looking to save money by managing their own rental properties, as property owners typically pay an average of AU$2,000 in property management fees each year.
According to Jeremy Goldschmidt, RentBetter’s Founder and CEO, the platform’s latest solution will empower property owners to retain control over their investment portfolios. Goldschmidt referred to the new solution as a game-changer for rental property owners who manage their properties independently. The solution provides an additional layer of security by allowing condition reports to be generated from anywhere, at any time, with just a click of a button.
Daniel Watts, Director at Rapid Building Inspections, a leading building and pest inspection services provider in Australia, stated that the partnership between Rapid Building Inspections and RentBetter is a natural extension of their respective businesses. He added that the synergy between both companies enables them to offer property owners a compelling proposition that reduces costs and increases control over their rental properties.
The collaboration with Rapid Building Inspections marks the first stage of RentBetter’s partnership with Deep Blue Company, with the potential to expand into their wider range of services. Earlier this year, RentBetter secured AUD $1.9 million to accelerate the platform’s growth into new market segments and establish strategic distribution partnerships.
