Our property management plans include the following services.
Setting the Rent
With a vast database of local and national rental rates at our fingertips, we will ensure that you are always getting the appropriate market rent. We’ll also take care of the bond obligations and procedures in accordance with legal requirements for you.
Finding and Selecting Tenants
Purchasing an investment property is one of life’s greatest expenses; renting it out to a stranger is one of life’s greatest risks.
Don’t leave your investment property to a stranger just to gain sleepless nights. With interview and screening techniques that have been perfected over the years, our experienced team endeavors to find you the best tenants for your property based on your needs and relevant tenancy laws.
Regular and Systematic Property Inspections
Every 10 weeks (or as required), we complete a written property inspection for you. This allows us to report to you on:
How the tenants have been looking after your property.
Whether there are small repairs that need attending to
Any maintenance issues that require your attention
We also carry out property inspections when a tenant enters and vacates a property. This ensures that they have completed their contractual obligations under the Tenancies Act.
These inspections that we carry out allows you as the owner to keep on top of how your property is being looked after. Whether you are an absentee owner living overseas or residing in another part of the country, our aim is to allow you to continue enjoying the things that matter in your life while we take care of your investment.
Protect Your Investment
In emergencies, it’s important to have a list of reliable tradespeople that can ensure quality work and a prompt response. Having managed properties for over 20 years, we work with a register of tradespeople who are proven to be reliable and consistently provide high quality results. This is done to ensure that your investment is protected, especially when emergencies arise.
Negotiating Rent Reviews
If you’re managing your own property, it can be a difficult and stressful process to carry out the necessary rent reviews. With your property under our management, we can help your property maintain appropriate market rents on your behalf. This gives you the ability to make the right decision without becoming too involved.
Keeping the Records Straight
When you own an investment property, one of the most important things to do is to monitor rent collection.. Our property managers will supply you with monthly statements and keep an accurate record for you and your accountant.
