The experience

Say hello to a new way of renting

At Realm, we are creating a new way to live. All of our homes give you the freedom to live where you want to live, for however long you choose, on flexible terms. Plus, Realm offers you a whole lot of extras to help you get the most out of every day– from dry-cleaning services to exclusive events.

A better experience
all round

Here are just a few things that make Realm a very different rental experience.

Secure, flexible leases

With an institutional building owner, Realm gives you greater flexibility when signing and extending your lease. Say goodbye to rental insecurity – once you move in, you can stay as long as you like.

Your very own onsite manager

Your dedicated Resident Experience team will be onsite 7 days a week to help you with anything related to your home – from arranging maintenance to organising a pet-sitter for your furry friend, and even organising building events!

Appliances come as part of the package

Can’t be bothered to move the fridge again? At Realm you don’t have to! All homes come kitted out with a fridge/freezer, washing machine, dryer and full-size dishwasher.

Move in when it suits you, not us

Who has time to move home during a work week? Our team are on-site 7 days so there’s no need to take time off work. Move in Saturday or Sunday at your leisure!


Our places are pet friendly

Pets are part of the family, so they’re more than welcome at Realm! Check out our Pet Policy for the nitty gritty.

A handy-human that replies

Whether it’s a routine paint job or an emergency repair, the Realm maintenance team has you covered. They know how important it is to be responsive, and keep you updated the way you prefer be it a call, text or email.

All the furniture you need

As well as the appliances that come standard with all our homes, a selection of Realm properties come fully furnished for your convenience, complete with TV and microwave.

A neighbourhood like no other

We love the sense of community that Realm creates, and we host a range of events and get-togethers to give you time to catch up with your neighbours.

Make it feel like home

Any questions?

We’ve answered some of the questions you might have below

What does ‘Build-to-Rent’ mean and how does it apply to Realm?

At a fundamental level, ‘Build-to-Rent’ is an industry term that means the entire building is owned by one institutional owner, with the sole focus on renting the apartments. Living in a Realm home gives you peace of mind that you can stay long-term and build a community without the uncertainty that renting in Australia currently provides.

Along with the ownership structure, Realm properties benefit from exclusive facilities and amenities, along with dedicated maintenance teams and a Resident Experience team focused on delivering a community experience. Realm aims to revolutionise the renting experience with a commitment to personalised responsive service, world-class locations and quality design. Be one of the first to try this new lifestyle and let our team show you what renting can be.

How long can I live in this property?

Our team believes in a renter’s ability to choose a long-term home and we are pleased to offer this option. After your initial tenancy term, you will be offered the option to extend. We encourage our residents to put their roots down and grow with us.

What sort of lease duration can I be offered?

We appreciate the need for flexibility in this changing world therefore we have created a variety of lease options to cater for the various needs of our residents. Our leases range between 6-36 months, however we welcome and encourage you to extend your stay with us when your lease expires and will be happy to discuss your options with you when the time comes.

Can I have a pet?

Yes! We understand that our furry friends are part of the family. At Realm we welcome pets and have created a pet-friendly space with plenty of helpful services to help you care for your pet. To ensure each resident’s safety and comfort, we do ask that all pets are pre-approved through a free-of-charge pet application process and abide by our Pet Policy (available upon request).
