Key tips for success

Realising the true potential of your property
Having the property presented in its best manner online and at open homes/inspections will go a long way to attracting the right tenants at optimum rents. Achieving optimum rent means knowing the market and having the skills to negotiate the best possible rental rate. We are constantly monitoring the market and initiating appropriate rental reviews on your behalf.

Minimise vacancy
We understand that minimising vacancy, maximises the return on your investment. Results show that our vacancy rates are statistically considerably lower than market rates.
Our many policies to achieve this excellent result include re-signing tenants to fixed leases, marketing properties prior to departure and establishing good relationships with tenants to ensure co-operation with access for Open for Inspections.

Tenant checking
Selecting the right tenant goes a long way to making sure the property is achieving its maximise return. In the same sense if a building has a strong foundation and is built correctly you don’t spend time and money fixing problems.
Our stringent tenant checking system includes a 100 point system similar to that used by banks. In addition, we check the national database of Tenant Reference Australia which has links to other credit control agencies. We also call the tenant’s previous leasing agent as well as confirm their current employment.

The correct paperwork
All too often we see investors coming to us with problems that could have been avoided if they had the correct paperwork in place from the start. Using the right leases, ingoing reports and the correct compliance paperwork has never been more important. Tenants have access to a plethora of information making it so important to have all the correct paperwork from the start.
Hill and Viteri are leading agents in embracing new technology to offer a more efficient service. Leases are electronically updated regularly to keep up with the ever changing rules and regulations. All ingoing reports are typed and combined with digital photos and signed off by the tenants. Our landlords are sent monthly statements either by email or standard mail.
Payments of levies, council rates and all other outgoings are recorded on Income and Expenditure statements to make it easy for your accountant to lodge your tax return.
Hill and Viteri also provide sound commercial advice on all aspects of your property management including issues such as Landlord Insurance.

Keep up the up-keep
At Hill and Viteri, we understand that you have invested in property for long term capital growth and to this end you require sound monitoring of the condition of your premises. We conduct three to six monthly periodical inspections and relay this information to you in a written report with photos on the quality of your tenancy, maintenance and repairs. In addition, we prepare an annual property review with an update on the value of your investment and growth.
