I am looking for some advice regarding a property I am purchasing to rent out in the near future. I am a first home buyer, so I am looking about 6-12 months down the track. I have no experience and have a couple of questions for people who know more about it than me. Pros and Cons of renting the property out yourself vs going through an agent? What would you recommend? How much does it cost to go through an agent and what is the normal % of weekly rent that the agent takes? Any other advice would be appreciated.
