Listing Website A First For Landlords And Tenants

News Release 28 July 2008

Property Listing Website A First For Landlords And Tenants

A new website specialising in listings for commercial lease premises and residential rental properties is making it easier for landlords and tenants to do business.

Get Leased ( was created by Christchurch businessman Terry Kearns, who saw the need for an independent on-line marketplace serving all parties in the property leasing and rental sector.

“It is the first website dedicated to providing a listing resource for private landlords, investors, property managers and real estate agencies looking for tenants,” Kearns said.

“Because it opens up the residential and commercial markets to full view, it makes it easier and faster for prospective tenants to find their ideal residence or business premises.

He said unless would-be tenants contacted every leasing agency or property manager in a preferred area, it was impossible to see the total offering.

In settling for a compromise they could find out later that a better proposition, unknown to them at the time, was just around the corner.

“Get Leased gives them an opportunity to view the whole rental market, with user-friendly browsing features providing up-to-date information.

“With a single listing priced from $30 and bulk listing packs at $100 a month, our fee levels should have strong appeal.”

He said the new site also allowed property managers to display and manage all their rental listings without the high cost of producing and promoting their own multi-functional website.

“As a dedicated marketing tool for landlords and a shop window for tenants, we anticipate demand from across the entire property rental sector.”
