The best property managers work closely with property owners. No one knows your investment property better than you so learning more about your property is an important part of PRD Whitsunday's appraisal process. An in-depth knowledge allows your property manager to effectively communicate with potential tenants to increase the interest in your property.
On the one hand you have on-the-ground property managers with extensive local knowledge. On the other you have PRD's research analysts, whose job it is to understand the market inside out – where it’s coming from, where it’s moving to, and, most importantly, where your property sits in the mix. Your property manager can help you understand rental price structures, the role of rate fluctuations in the market and the potential tax depreciation on your investment property.
Your property manager will craft a campaign that resonates more effectively with your preferred tenants. The marketing tools that can be used can include:
- Rental proposition development
- Professional photography and copywriting
- Online listings on key real estate portals
- Targeted direct marketing and print advertising
- Social media
Selecting a tenant
PRD property managers are confident in connecting the right tenant with your property. Meticulous preparation of tailored marketing campaigns, advice on presenting your property and open communication lines keep landlords informed during the rental process. Being part of a franchise network ensures that PRD’s property management teams have the unwavering support of an efficient and well-resourced brand that is committed to ensuring landlords receive the best service available.
Applicants are fully screened with references checked including work references, previous tenancy and personal references. Once this has been completed you are contacted and given details of the applicants available. You confirm final approval based on information supplied.
Your property will be handled by a PRD office that has local knowledge and skilled professionals on staff who are eager to assist you with all management services. At the beginning of each tenancy a Property Condition Report is completed to ensure a thorough record of the details of your property is on file. The tenant is given the opportunity to make comments on the report. This is followed up by periodic inspections, with a report forwarded to you on each occasion. These inspections help to mitigate any future risk by providing the tenant with the opportunity to highlight any areas of maintenance that may require attention. It also allows the property manager to check on the condition in which the property is being maintained.
If you feel unsure about the management services we provide at any time, you are encouraged to ask questions so you can be confident that you are dealing with a property manager who has the expertise and experience to manage your property the smarter way.
