FAQs - PRIVATE LANDLORDS
If you are a private landlord you’ve probably thought at times about whether to place your properties under professional management.
Whether your rental investment is a planned strategy, or you’ve somehow ended up with an extra home, there can be a lot to consider when weighing up how to choose a property management company.
If you’ve invested in rentals for a while, and managed these yourself, then you’ll have a good idea of what aspects you enjoy and what you find troublesome.
Maybe you’ve bought a new family home, or work and family commitments require you to move elsewhere. For many owners this is an opportunity to start a rental portfolio, however between choosing quality tenants, ensuring you are meeting all the regulatory requirements for rental property, and being available for viewings, inspections, maintenance and general tenancy queries, it’s not as simple as putting an ad online then collecting the rent.
We hear many common questions from private landlords, and are happy to give you as much detail as you need to ensure your peace of mind.
Did you know that in many cases we can rent your home more quickly and for more than you are able to privately?
If you self-manage your rentals there isn’t any tax benefit, however any fees paid for property management is tax deductible, immediately saving you at least 33%.
Whether you are working in paid employment or have your own business, your hourly rate will greatly exceed the small daily cost of having your home managed. For as little as a few dollars per day we can take away the stress of owning a rental home.
One of the first questions we ask you is who are your ideal tenants, and we work to your requirements (as long as these don’t breach any anti-discrimination laws)
