While there are loads of tips and free advice we share with our clients, you can check out some do’s and don’ts that we think investors and landlords should be aware of below:
Hire Yourself a Professional Property Manager
There is no if’s or but’s here on this one. A professional property management team is your one stop shop for your rental investment, and should not be overlooked.
(We talk more below on the downfalls of DIY property management.)
Understand The Tenancy Laws & Acts
Knowing where you stand legally is a good practice in any aspect of business. And as renting out investment properties is essentially your business. One would want to make sure they are covered.
Lease Out To Blue Chip Companies
The benefit here is minimal vacancy rates, as Blue Chip companies are known to agree on fixed leases of up to and over 60 month terms.
Blue Chip companies will rent out your property generally for their executive staff and families.
Keep Your Investment Clean & Updated
Always keeping your investment property clean and looking modern, is a sure way to get a higher yield on your return.
Tenants that lead professional & busy lifestyles, appreciate a fresh and modern home to come back to after a hard day’s work. And they are most likely to stay longer due to the appeal.
Don’t Lease To Family & Friends
DO NOT Lease out to family and friends even if you are using an agent. Unfortunately family members and close friends tend to push the envelope to far at times. And your agent will be like do you want to kick out your brother and his family etc…
Don’t Do DIY Property Management
Doing property management DIY is not encouraged. Unless you are thinking of doing it as a full time job. Only to get stuck with all the headaches and challenges.
Firstly you have to do administrative and business tasks such as setting up your own policies and business hours.
Secondly you must be highly organised and be able to respond to tenant emergencies.
And not only will you have to do all the accounting and finances, you will have to interview and screen tenants and outsource maintenance repairs.
These point are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to trying to do property management DIY.
That is why it is best to select a property management agency that can provide you with a stress free environment and manage your investment property needs.
