As the weather warms, you may see "Rent" signs on lawns and sidewalks leading to housing complexes. Spring usually means a major shift in the real estate climate as people prepare to move to a new job, city, or go to school.
As a house hunter, you have many options: you can consult housing associations for vacancies, hire property management services from a real estate agent or rent them directly from the owner. Each perspective brings with it different circumstances, so you may be wondering if it's better to go to a management company. You can also avail the benefits of a rental management company via rentdomain.com.au/house-rental-companies/.

If you don't know where to find leads yet, consider these options:
1) If you rent through a management company, you will get access to help. If something is wrong with the plumbing or other lighting fixtures, you can contact your agent who will send assistance. While this happens to landlords when there is an emergency, when they are out of town, or when they live out of state, the waiting time can be longer.
2) Renting through an agent can give you an advantage in terms of buying a house, or a house you rent, or any other property registered through a company.
3) You may have more opportunities to switch leases to upgrade the property with an agent compared to landowners who are more attached to the house.
Think carefully about where to rent. This is your home, at least for next year. There are benefits to all of the available options, but for an experience where issues are resolved quickly and efficiently, working with a management company may work well for you.
