Property management is a complex and varied task that’s best not left to an amateur. In fact, it’s not one task but a whole host of demanding tasks that need to be done properly and at the right time. Failure to do so can result in a property that underperforms and also causes plenty of unforeseen problems.
How Property Management Companies Help You Maximise Your Investment
Legislation is changing constantly, and regulations are becoming ever more demanding. Unless you have a large property portfolio and a full-time property management department to look after it, you’ll find it impossible to keep up with the changes and ensure you comply. So, to do things properly and get the most from your property, you need a professional and committed company.
Getting the Most from Your Property
Our aims are pretty straightforward and consistent — to help you maximise the potential of your assets. That means having buildings that work properly, increase their capital value and generate the maximum amount of rental income.
To ensure a building works properly and effectively, we can help you plan an efficient layout to achieve optimum occupancy levels and can organise refurbishments and fit-outs that keep the premises in first class condition. We can provide reactive maintenance should problems occur and can also supply regular servicing to keep those problems to the minimum.
Whether you need commercial or residential property management, we aim to make the whole process of property ownership as stress-free as possible. We deal with all tenant relationships, maintenance issues and legislative requirements, so you don’t have to. We’ll take responsibility for the health and safety of everyone who uses a building and ensure compliance with all the relevant regulations. The outcome is that you have no worries because you can be assured the properties are in good hands.
Tenant Satisfaction Equals Maximum Returns
As a property investor, the overriding reason for owning a building is to make money from it. We’ll ensure that happens throughout a property’s full life-cycle by helping to acquire the right building, achieving maximum rental income from it and maintaining the property in first class condition, so it has the highest possible capital value on disposal.
The biggest source of revenue from a property is the on-going rental income, and we ensure that’s as high as possible by:
- thoroughly vetting prospective tenants to ensure only suitable and reliable ones rent the property
- minimising vacancies by identifying future terminations and securing new tenants as soon as possible
- collecting rents and service charges when due and paying amounts over promptly to you
- avoiding rent arrears by constantly liaising with tenants so that potential problems are recognised early and overcome where possible
- ensuring tenants are happy with their property and the service they have provided.
Contented tenants are a sign that a building is operating as it should do in all respects, leading to maximum returns and a satisfied client. We, therefore, do our very best for all parties and aim for a smooth process for all aspects of property management. No matter what the size or type of property, we provide the same professional and friendly service to everyone involved.
Buying and Selling Real Estate in Brisbane, Australia
As with nearly every other product and service, real estate companies in Brisbane and elsewhere have increasingly taken advantage of the internet to market properties. This does offer certain benefits to both buyers and sellers because they can easily compare properties, prices, areas and companies. It at least enables an initial shortlist to be made without even having to leave home and can make the whole process of buying and selling much quicker.
Bear in mind, however, that the choice of agents and properties shouldn’t simply be based on the slickness of the website and the ease of finding suitable properties. That’s only part of the process, and its success or failure will largely depend on the quality of the agent and the services that are provided.
Finding the Right Agent if you have Real Estate for Sale in Brisbane
Selling property can sometimes be difficult, especially if it’s not something that’s particularly in demand or if the market is flat. In all cases, your chances of selling quickly and at a good price are improved if you select a first class agent. The best and most professional will achieve first class results and serve you well, so choose carefully.
Good agents will offer a wide range of properties that turn over quickly. However, make sure that such an agent isn’t too busy to deal with your property in a thorough manner; the way you’re treated when you first make contact will give some indication.
Check how soon they expect to have your property on the market, how quickly they anticipate a sale and whether their valuation seems realistic compared to similar properties. Ask about their marketing methods, their experience with similar properties in your area and, if possible, contact previous clients to assess their experience.
At Image Property, we aim to put properties on the market quickly and give them our full attention to achieve a fast sale. We have long experience of Brisbane homes for sale and use our knowledge to achieve the best outcome. Our service is personal and professional, and we take pride in what we do, so your real estate is in dependable hands.
Benefits and Issues with Real Estate Investing
Real estate is an increasingly popular type of investment since it can provide a regular income and an asset that increases in value. There are plenty of opportunities for significant profit but, since buying and owning real estate is a complex business, you can also run into problems and incur losses.
Investment in real estate isn’t simply a matter of buying a property and renting it to a tenant. You, as the landlord, are responsible for that property and must pay for it, often through a mortgage, as well as maintaining it, arranging insurance and paying any associated taxes and other costs. You also have to choose and deal with tenants, who may cause problems and damage the property, collect rents and overcome issues. Rent needs to be set at a level that will at least cover the mortgage and other costs, and there are many other aspects to consider.
If you want to avoid the hassle of being a landlord, we can also offer full property management services and look after your property for you. With our help, your real estate investment will be stress-free and profitable.
