Property management – including fees

Did you know that many agencies take on all properties regardless of their condition?

We don’t.  Why?  Because it just doesn’t make good business sense.

Our view – Properties that are in good condition and well maintained are better placed to attract quality long term tenants.

Result:  Lower fees and stress free for you and us.

If you’re with an agency that takes on ANY property – the probable outcome:

Overworked and stressed property managers, which usually means higher staff turnover.  So you’re constantly talking with some one new, who doesn’t know you or your property

Questionable/quick tenant selection processes, which could result in tenants who don’t look after your investment or worse cause significant damage

Abandonment of property

Poor communication with tenants and landlords

Higher level of properties in rent arrears

Poor quality entry condition reports

Irregular routine inspections

Repairs and maintenance issues left unattended which could result in higher costs to rectify

What does that potentially mean for you and your investment:

Stress and worry

Rent arrears – no money to pay the mortgage

Unforeseen costs

Potential impact on current value and capital appreciation

We take managing your property seriously.  We’re extremely proud of our overall record.

Low vacancy rates

Day to day involvement by Owner/Principal

We don’t spend any money on repairs and mainatenance (no matter the cost) unless we have your authority to do so.

Low to nil rent arrears

And so much more
