Gumtree partners with HouseME to offer hassle-free rental service

Online classifieds platform, Gumtree has partnered with property technology company HouseME to offer improved house rental services.

As a result of this collaboration, Gumtree is able to verify prospective tenants through a rigorous vetting process and reduce the risk for property owners.

Head of Operations at Gumtree SA Barrie Swart says HouseMe offers the rental service at an affordable rate of 2.5% of the lease.

He says the property owner pays nothing until a suitable tenant has been found.

For an extra 1 percent on top of the 2 and half, there's also an option to have a rental guarantee. If you find yourself in a situation where a tenant is not paying, that rental guarantee will cover you to make sure you are not out of pocket at that time.
