Advice on Renting a House in Pretoria


Whether you are new to the renting sector or simply rethinking your current living needs, the process of searching for and securing a house to rent in Pretoria can be time consuming and stressful. Regardless of what your budget is, you will find bargains and you will find duds. Millions of people in South Africa depend on rental accommodation, and it is a huge sector.


Oftentimes, tenants feel as though rental agencies value property owners more than them. The truth is that any good rental agency knows that a tenant is just as an important factor in their business as a landlord. You can’t have the sector without either of the two. So partner with Huurkor when looking to rent a house in Pretoria, where we value both our tenants and landlords in equal measure.


At Huurkor, we go out of our way to ensure a satisfying rental experience to both the landlord and tenant. We value both our clients and go beyond the call of duty to ensure that both feel that they are receiving value for money. We bring years of experience to the property rentals sector and make our expertise available to your benefit. So let us help you rent a house in Pretoria that will be a safe and happy home for your family.


Steps to Finding a House to Rent in Pretoria


The first step in finding the right home to rent is to determine what you can pay. Don’t make the rookie mistake of searching for a home that maxes out your budget. Keep in mind that you still need to have money for utilities and perhaps even gardening services for the property. Don’t overextend yourself and be realistic about your budget and what you can really afford.


Next, brainstorm the features that you seek from the property. This goes beyond finding a home with two bathrooms to accommodate all the people in the household. Look beyond the home itself to the external features, such as amenities in the area and the proximity to your work. Oftentimes, young couples or starter families prefer to rent a house in Pretoria that is close to the highway and some distance away from schools, in order to gain easy access to the freeway, without being subjected to suburban traffic.


Families with school-aged children might want the opposite, and rent a house in Pretoria in a good school district. So consider everything that you need from your new home and its area, before making a decision. The property professionals at Huurkor are experienced in helping our clients to assess their needs, and make a wise and informed decision regarding the new home for their family.
