The RE/MAX Landlord
Property acquisitions are a popular and important component of any investment portfolio but, to work effectively, they also need to be managed skillfully. RE/MAX Property Management divisions offer professional assistance in all aspects of maintaining your investment from deciding on the right amount of rent to charge, finding a suitable tenant, looking after rent collection, and taking care of repairs and maintenance.
RE/MAX Property Managers will take the time to meet with you and personally inspect your investment property. Armed with extensive experience in local market conditions, they will then advise you on a rental return designed to attract a suitable tenant and encourage the minimum number of vacancies. In some areas seasonal demand has a large impact on rental income and your experienced property manager will advise you how to take full advantage of the busiest times of the year.
Once a property is tenanted, rent collection is one of the vital tasks performed by your RE/MAX property manager. Efficient systems are in place to ensure a hassle-free service for property owners, who receive detailed statements of all payments. Your RE/MAX Property Manager will also control any rent arrears, serving notices to tenants if necessary and keeping you informed during every step of the process.
RE/MAX Property Managers can also look after some of your regular property investment bills, including local council rates and body corporate fees, automatically making payments from rent collected.
Selecting a suitable tenant is one of the most crucial aspects of looking after any property investment. RE/MAX Property Managers perform thorough checks on all prospective tenants, taking into consideration their employment history, ability to pay rent and their personal references.
By helping select the right tenant for your property from the start, your RE/MAX Property Manager can help minimise the risks you might otherwise face with your investment. Once a tenant has been approved and all tenancy agreements completed, the rental bond will be collected and processed according to regulations.
Property entrance and exit inspections will also be carried out to ensure your investment is well maintained. Should any disputes arise during a tenancy agreement, your RE/MAX Property Manager has the expertise to handle any matters arising professionally on your behalf.
Repairs and Maintenance
Keeping an investment property means that ongoing repairs and maintenance must be considered. Regular maintenance ensures your property is kept in prime condition and remains a viable investment. Well-maintained properties encourage better tenants and ensure you receive good rental returns. While landlords are responsible for maintaining a property in good repair, RE/MAX Property Managers can organise all of the work for you. With access to an extensive list of trusted and fully-qualified tradespeople in your local area, your RE/MAX Property Manager can quickly and efficiently take care of everything from minor repairs to major emergencies.
RE/MAX Property Managers understand that quality service is paramount and they will tailor the management of your investment property to your personal requirements. By developing a mutually beneficial business relationship with clients, RE/MAX Property Managers guarantee to provide exceptional service, always looking after your best interests.
