ADVANTAGES OF USING A PROPERTY MANAGER?
It can be extremely daunting to have to handle the management of your property, using a Property Manager will ensure that you do not need to worry about complying with tenancy acts and regulations. Rent is collected, properties inspected, all repairs attended to and we can manage tenancy disputes.
We can offer extensive exposure of your property within Australia and New Zealand, this enables us to source that A1 tenant. We have access to tenancy databases that you do not have. With strict checks and communication, we will find you the right tenant.
Lessors can be covered by full comprehensive landlord insurance policy if they use a property manager through a licensed real estate agency.
As with all other expenses concerning your investment, your property management fees are also a tax deduction – please talk to your accountant.
WHO IS THE LANDLORD?
With using a property manager you can remain as anonymous to your tenant as you choose. Your personal details are kept in strict confidence.

e) Do they have the correct qualifications and licensed?
f) Are their assistants also qualified and licensed?

j) Will your property get the best exposure, and do you have to pay for that exposure?
k) What level of service will your property manager provide? Are they too busy, loaded down with too many properties, or trying to maintain their business as well as care for your investment?
