There's quite a few smaller ones on google, but the 2 you mention are definately the largest. Also, the agents often have their own websites - you would need to find out who is in the area you are looking in and find out their web addys. Where are you looking?

I think any other smaller sites you find would only be a scaled down version of those sites anyway - listing the same properties.

Heres a website I put together which lists a couple of different sites - but whether or not they'd show you anything new I dont know - hope so

http://www.shopsinoz.com/realestate.html

Where are you looking?

Because there's a high demand for rentals in most cities at the moment, a lot of places don't even get advertised online. I used to find the best way to find out about rentals was to phone up real estate agents on Friday and ask what was open for inspection on Saturday.

Thanks for the responses all, I am looking for somewhere in Perth. I work in the CBD and have been trying to find something fairly close but every house is either to small or to expensive. If I go very far out to somewhere like clarkson (last stop on the train line!) I can get a lovely place for a nice price

I guess I am trying to find a nice balance of cost and size within a resonable distance, feels like misson impossible at the minute !

Why not target all the real estate agents close to areas you want to live - google agents and just spend some time emailing or calling them. Give them your requirements and let them do the work?
