How much does it cost for housing providers to list a property?

The Housing Hub is currently free of charge for Housing Providers – it doesn’t cost anything to list vacancies. Listings are sponsored by state governments in 2018.From 1 March 2019:

  • All new listings will cost $120 (ex GST). This applies to all properties that have never been published on The Housing Hub before, including those that have remained in draft mode.
  • All reactivated listings will cost $50 (ex. GST). This applies to properties being relet.
  • NB: The listing fee is for one address, regardless of how many tenants reside at the address. Multiple addresses within the same complex demand it’s own listing fee (for example: 1/1 Dream St, Melbourne and 2/1 Dream St, Melbourne).

The payment process is very simple. When you wish to publish a listing, you will be prompted to complete a checkout process. You will be asked to enter your billing address. You will not be asked to enter any payment information until 1 March 2019. You will be sent a receipt via email to the registered email address. Your listing will not be published until you complete the checkout process.
