We applied for a rental yesterday but I'm not holding my breath as there was a multitude of people looking through. I was just wondering if anyone knew how they pick the tenants if they're all pretty equal with income and references etc. what does it come down to?

Comes down to the owners preference. We didnt get a property and though we have agreat rental history etc they chose somone else

It really comes down to owners preference. They are given a summary and recommendations by the real estate. In my sisters case when she was choosing for her rental. She looked at pets,kids etc but ultimately she picked Dinks everytime if she could.

it can be just up to the landlords preference. Pets, number of children, secure income, rental history, any number of things can be important to one landlord and not matter to the next landlord. Marie

I've just applied for a house yesterday.
There were 25+ groups at the inspection and most seemed quite interested.
I'm a single mum with two toddlers who doesn't qualify for social services like SPP, NRAS etc... so I'm already at a huge disadvantage.
So I offered $25 over their weekly asking price, included pay slips, a rental ledger showing I've been paying more than I've offered with no issues at all.
Fingers crossed. I have 9 days to get out of the house I'm in and there's nothing on the market.
