Two Australian companies have joined forces to provide a fast and efficient rental property search solution.

Zango, Canberra’s largest and locally-owned property portal, has announced a partnership with the property rental booking platform Snug.

The portal’s Chief Executive Officer Darryn McRae explained that speed matters most in Canberra’s highly competitive property rental market.

McRae said: “As a modern, vibrant property portal with an unwavering focus on user experience and customer service, Zango is delighted to partner with Snug to expand on our platform’s digital agility to reliably and conveniently connect people with places.”

The partnership will automate property inspections, allowing for better management of attendees in a COVID-safe way, and saving time in the process by removing manual operations.

Potential property renters are able to book homes and request appointments.

Snug was established in 2017 and now boasts hundreds of real estate agents as active clients. It helps property managers lease and rent faster by guiding consumers through the application process.

It collects more than 100 items of data, including rental references and employment checks. Its patent-pending Snug Match score helps guide property managers towards their best rental prospects.

Snug’s Chief Executive Officer Justin Butterworth said: “Zango is an exciting portal with a strong presence in the Australian Capital Territory, so we’re enthusiastic to deepen the integration and enhance the experience for rental agents and their customers.”

Zango claims to be shaking up the property listings market with a locally-owned and run platform that delivers hot new listings, better value and relevant local insights.

Established in 2017 Snug is on a mission to make renting easier, with what it claims are better quality rental applications and processing and communication tools.

This latest collaboration is similar to the September 2021 announcement that New Zealand-based classifieds giant Trade Me partnered with local PropTech firm Renti.

The Australian property rental market appears to be a buoyant one. Last week, Australia’s market-leading property rental listings marketplace, reported revenue growth of 26% in its latest financial report.
