Renting // 15.1.19

Benefits of using an agency to handle your investment

When embarking on an investment property, you’ll soon find out it’s not all as easy as just buy, rent out, enjoy positive gearing...

But, it doesn’t need to be as stressful as horror stories will suggest (terrible tenants, damage to property and time taken up checking in, inspecting and chasing rent payment). If you have a good, reputable and professional agency taking care of your property, from end-to-end, this process can be simplified, streamlined and ultimately, stress-free. Here are the benefits of an agency taking care of your investment. 

Ongoing care of your property

We aren’t just available for segmented support when it comes to the purchasing and management of an investment property. We are as invested as you in terms of wanting a successful experience renting out your property and contributing to your property portfolio. From the beginning, we help navigate you to a property that suits your needs and budget, then go through a vigorous tenant applicant vetting system before finding reputable renters. We then continue to ensure everything is working for both you and your tenants with an open line of communication, quick and efficient actioning of queries and requirements, and regular inspections. We also manage rent scheduling on your behalf and chase any late payments so you don’t have to. 

The benefit of having a reputable and trusted agent taking care of your property is that you can rest easy knowing everything is being taken care of, even when you’re not around to oversee.

Local knowledge

Our team of agents are all very familiar with the local market and area as a whole. Our reputation is built on trustworthiness and transparency, so when it comes to the right renters looking for a suitable home, they know to come to us. This means that, through the hard ground work we do in our community, you will benefit from the great tenants we attract and be assured of a strong, healthy tenant/agency/landlord relationship.  

Assurance to distance investors 

Whether you’re interstate or simply closer to the city for work, there is a growing appeal to investing in more inland areas with less dense property options that are more reasonably priced. However, the one downside can be that you are less able to personally check in on your property and so arise fears of taking this investment option. The benefit of having a reputable and trusted agent taking care of your property is that you can rest easy knowing everything is being taken care of, even when you’re not around to oversee. We keep a strong line of communication, navigated by your personal preferences, and can assist immediately with any concerns you have regarding your investment property. 

Local investors do not need to ‘helicopter’ their properties

Local investors do not need to pick up any management slack just because they happen to be in closer proximity to their property. It is remains our priority to ensure the ongoing experience of an investment property is smooth and stress-free. There is no need to feel pressure to always check on your property or your tenants. It’s up to us to make sure all management of the property is handled, and our doors are always open for any questions and queries you have on your investment. 

We help landlords manage maintenance, upgrades and repairs of ceilings, walls, roller doors, balconies and lights, as well as any plumbing and electrical issues that may arise.
