Why You Need a Professional To Manage Your Investment Property

Owning an investment property can be a rewarding experience, but if your asset isn’t managed by a knowledgeable professional, it can become stressful and even less profitable. Here are a few of the many reasons why choosing United Realty to manage your property portfolio is a no-brainer.

Maximise Your Return

Our Property Managers are trained professionals who are skilled in areas of advertising and marketing your property not only on various advertising platforms but also by making contact with our database of potential and pre-qualified tenants we have been working with. Our Property Management team perform rental history checks, income checks, etc. as well as suggest minor cosmetic alterations that can be made to your property to further increase the rental return.

The Who’s Who of Responsibility

Something we are asked all the time is ‘who is responsible for XYZ; is it the landlord or the tenant?’ We see this particularly in relation to acreage properties such as water tanks, septic systems, fencing, irrigation, stable maintenance, etc. There are a myriad of scenarios that can play out here, but if you enlist United’s Property Management services, you don’t have to worry as we’re experienced in all of these scenarios.

Knowledge of Legislation

It’s true that anyone can self-manage their investment, but are you aware of the legislative requirements to ensure the safety of the tenant?

Things like blind cord compliance, swimming pool compliance, smoke alarms, water efficiencies, etc. are all crucial elements of your investment. Our team are highly trained and complete regular training to keep updated with all new laws and policies.

Less Stress

As part of a lease agreement, emergency repairs are listed and tradespeople agreed on, so that in the case of a burst water pipe, a blocked toilet, or no hot water, your Property Manager can sort any issues out for you, decreasing your stress and keeping your tenant’s needs met.

Acreage Property Specialists

Acreage properties often feature things like septic systems, market gardens, horse stables, etc. which many agencies aren’t experienced with. Our Property Management team are highly skilled in managing both acreage and residential properties.
