Harcourts Property Management - Information for Landlords
- It Begins with You
No property is ever the same, as our client situations and needs are all different. At Harcourts we like to get to know you, to find out what is important to you and what you are hoping to achieve. We will listen and work in partnership with you to design a strategic plan that is applicable to the market you will be renting in and is most suitable to meet your needs. We welcome any questions you may have about who we are and what we do.
- Your Property
It is important for you to take us on a tour of your property so that we can take detailed notes in preparation for entering the market. You will know what features of the home are special, what improvements you have made and perhaps the smaller but important details of what is enjoyable about living in the home. Any permits for alterations would be of value and let us know what fixtures you intend to take with you or possible chattels that could stay with the home.
- Positioning Your Property in the Market
When your property first enters the market, this is the time it will receive the most interest and enquiry, so we need to ensure it’s priced correctly. Realistically priced properties generate more enquiry, which means higher levels of interest, increased tenancy applications & a far greater change of securing the perfect tenant.
The time spent researching market conditions is invaluable here. It also helps to avoid putting barriers in the way of potential tenants, such as price – as many potential tenants disregard properties based on price alone. You may be promised an unrealistically high rental return from some of our competitors. These promises can result in your property staying on the market for extended periods of time, costing you money.
- Finding Your Tenant
Finding the right tenant for your home requires us to leave no stone unturned.
The many websites and portals we advertise property on are far reaching, however because there are thousands of properties listed online tenants use search criteria to create a shortlist of properties to view in their preferred location and price range.
We will ensure that our listing stands out & presents your property in the best possible light to attract the maximum number of tenants as early in the campaign as possible.
