Property Management Specialists in Melbourne
Investing in a rental property can be one of the biggest financial commitments one makes, so it is therefore very important to locate a diligent and competent Property Manager, who will take care of your property as though it were their own.
The Property Management team at Stockdale & Leggo Caulfield have come up with the below qualities to look for when deciding which Property Manager should manage your property portfolio.
Ask for referrals from friends or family who have been happy with Property Managers or property management companies who have been managing their property. Deep dive into why they were satisfied and what qualities the Property Manager demonstrated which set them apart.
Do your own property management research in the way of an online google search. Pay particular attention to reviews on Yelp and Facebook as it’s likely, if a landlord hasn’t been happy with their property management service, they will have posted an online review.
Interview a shortlist of Property Managers whose property management service you’re impressed with. Make a time to show them your property and ask them some questions. These can include:
a. How long have you worked in property management in the Caulfield North, Caulfield South, Glen Huntly, Glen Iris, Malvern, Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Ormond and Bentleigh area?
b. What rental price do you think I can achieve in the current market?
c. How many properties do you currently manage in the Caulfield North, Caulfield South, Glen Huntly, Glen Iris, Malvern, Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Ormond and Bentleigh areas and do you have tenants who might be interested in my property?
d. How robust is your tenant selection process?
Review the Management Authority agreement with a fine tooth comb to ensure their property management responsibilities are clearly outlined so you have a solid understanding of what you can expect from them as your Property Manager. Pay particular attention to the information on services provided, extra fees charged, responsibilities of the Landlord, compliance with fair housing laws and cancellation terms.
