I want to rent a bach for the school holidays. Should I rent through a real estate agent?

Some holiday home owners rent their holiday homes out themselves.  Others rent their holiday homes out via agents.  As a renter, your interests and personal details are better protected when you rent your holiday home through a licensed real estate agent.  You also benefit from more choice of homes, because the real estate agents have exclusive listings that are not available through any other channel.

Whether you rent a bach or holiday home directly from the property owner or through a licensed agent, it's advisable to search for online reviews of the property. Make sure that the photos shown are legitimate and represent the current property conditions. If you are able to, you should physically inspect the property and ask as many questions as possible before signing any holiday home Rental Agreement.

All details concerning the holiday home rental should be put in writing.
