About EasyRent

EasyRent is the first rental platform that focuses on connecting students and landlords. Our model was created as a solution to the struggles students and landlords were facing in the Auckland rental market. We are aware of all the issues that both parties are facing, which makes our EasyRent model the perfect fit.

Our founder, Toby, has worked in the property industry for over three years and is currently a student. Therefore, he recognises both aspects of the problem and has created a solution that equally benefits students and landlords. EasyRent was founded in 2019 once Toby had witnessed the true implications that short-term accommodation landlords were experiencing. The sudden impact of Covid-19 combined with the off-season low occupancy rates meant that landlords were stuck with empty properties and no rental income. Students are the perfect tenants to fill these properties as they can provide landlords with consistent off-season income because they only need a home during the academic year. EasyRent’s 9+3 month model was formed to provide landlords with consistent rent during the off-season (February to November) and the ability to capitalise on the peak summer rates (November to February). EasyRent maximises the landlords’ rental yield.
