New pricing updates

In case you missed it, we launched our new digital renting interface today! So what’s new?

Your online dashboard got a brand new look

Already a pioneer in using tech to speed up applications and assess the best rental price, we’ve now focused on taking on board your feedback as a community to further enhance our user experience.


The performance and stability of our system have improved, we have a new look, and our mobile version is now easier and faster to use.

We’ve also updated our pricing

Still miles below traditional agency fees, the new prices allow us to continue offering our best-in-class services such as tenant vetting, guaranteed rent, and a network of maintenance providers with top service.

Here is a short summary of what the changes mean for you:



  • Our base fee is now 3.5% of the total lease price for new properties listed by our existing or new landlords.
  • However, after the first lease, the fee on that property drops to 2.5% of the lease value.
  • Our minimum landlord fee is now R2,500 on new properties, and R2,000 for renewals.
  • Our Rental Guarantee, Eviction Coverage, PlaceME tool®, and Assist package fees remain unchanged.


  • Our lease administration fee, charged to tenants, remains at the industry-beating fee of R350 and will now also be charged for renewals. 
  • Our DepositFREE™ and DepositFLEX™ fees remain unchanged.

Have a look at our updated pricing here and don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions.
