What a wild ride this year has been.
We have all ridden the wave of COVID-19 uncertainty, disruption, frustration and sadness.
Some of the challenges we have shared together as a community, while others have been unique to individuals and families.
What. A. Year.
We will probably all be surrounded with "the year we'd rather forget" type images over the next few weeks.
As a welcome change, just as we have done in 2018 and 2019 we've compiled a few of the more positive images captured from our cameras throughout the year.
We hope you enjoy, and we wish you the best for a healthy and stable 2021! 🥂
As many of our long term investors and tenants would be aware, we made the decision to change property management software platforms in mid-2020. The change was made primarily to improve the "back of office" operations in our business, along with some improvements for our investors and tenants also.
While the new system was bedded in and our documented systems and processes were refined, we were holding off turning on one major feature - access to owner and tenant portals.
We all know 2020 has been a wild ride. We're all looking forward to a well deserved break with family and friends over the Christmas period to take stock of what has truly been an extraordinary year.
If you're thinking of listing your property for rent some time in the near future, now is the right time to start a conversation with a property manager to make sure you list sooner rather than later.
Here are our top 5 reasons to list your rental property before Christmas.
We've written before about the findings of the 2018 Voice of Australian Property Management Report, which found that most property managers are inexperienced, many are not happy in their role and want to leave their job, and that staff retention is often a low priority for real estate agency owners. Yikes!
We know from experience that investors can feel it's a case of "better the devil you know", staying with a less than satisfactory real estate agency simply because that has become the expected level of service.
Not happy with that, we've taken a look at our own data to determine how we "stack up" in terms of client satisfaction. We're pleased with the results!
