A granny flat in Sydney's western suburbs has been ridiculed online as renters continue to battle Australia's surging rental market.
While a "quiet and clean" one-bedroom property that's "fully furnished" sounds like a dream for some, this particular place failed to hit the mark for many.
Photos of the property were shared in an eastern suburbs Facebook group on Friday morning in search of a suitable renter, but within hours, the post appears to have been taken down following immense backlash.
According to the post seen by Yahoo News Australia, the property would suit a "full-time worker and students" and has an asking price of $250 a week. According to NSW Tenant Union's rent tracker tool, similar properties in the area range between $200-$290 weekly.
But for that price, many expected more bang for their buck, with some taking aim at the space. Photos show an open space with a single bed and mini bar fridge which appears to be the "bedroom". While the tiny kitchen is equipped with little more than a sink and a microwave.
"Surely this is a joke?" one person commented on the post. "You're not ashamed of renting this to someone?" another asked.
Granny flat 'looks like a slum'
Many pointed out the space is in desperate need of a clean with visible markings covering the doors, walls and floors. Some took aim at the limited furniture available, claiming it hardly classifies as a "fully furnished" property.
"Just do decent renovation, furnish the place properly before putting it on the market. Common sense," one wrote.
"Fully furnished lol. An old bed and a mini fridge and you're expecting someone to pay that much?" another said, adding "the place looks like a slum".
Post deleted following backlash
It appears as though the poster was hoping to rent the property privately, rather than through a real estate agent. Yahoo News Australia contacted her for comment after the post was removed.
While the listing on the popular Bondi Facebook page is gone, the exact same listing still appears in another Facebook group but has so far failed to spark interest.
