Our Leasing Agent's Main Task is Dedicated to Finding You the Right Tenant
Sourcing a good tenant requires skill and dedication. In fact, finding a new tenant for a vacant property requires a sales-type personality and is the reason why we have a dedicated Leasing Agent. Providing a total focus and increased number of inspections our Leasing Agent ensures we don't compromise the management of your property. Property Managers are often stretched for time and giving priority to leasing as well as managing properties effectively can be difficult.Our Leasing Agent accompanies prospective tenants to every inspection to ensure we promote all the features of your property.
Some of the other ways we try to minimise your vacancy include:
Minimising tenants moving - obtaining the best rental price is just one component of ensuring your investment achieves the best returns. Having a constant revenue stream is vital to ensuring the financial success of your investment, and in this market, if it's possible to entice the current tenants to remain by reducing the rent, this is financially more beneficial.
Online prescence - the first place today's prospective tenant starts their search for a rental property is online. This can be via a search engine, through a property website or even a facebook group. Statistics show that rental properties with good, clean photography lease quicker especially in helping create interest online through social media. Prospective tenants will be more inclined to click, inquire, and view so that ultimately, the more people that come through the door, the higher chances are that they will apply.
Digital Marketing - along with our own website, we promote rental properties on a range of property portals to ensure maximum exposure as well as social media. We also have our own database with prospective tenants and their specific requirements ready to rent a property that suits their needs. All our available properties are emailed directly to them with a follow up from our Leasing Officer.
Lease Terms - not a new concept, but certainly a tactic that we are pushing harder this year is to avoid new leases and lease extensions expiring in quieter times. You may find we suggest an 8 or 15 month lease to have the renewal come around in a busier period.
Our Leasing Agent is available full time to follow up all rental inquiries and book viewings. Unlike some agents who advertise a property and then pray for some inquiry, we actively pursue all tenant inquiries and try to accommodate their availability for viewings whenever possible. We also utilise our prospective tenant database to the best of our advantage and propose each inquiring tenant consider all our other listings if they one they inquired on doesn't suit. This seems like common sense but when actively pursued, we are converting interest from one property onto others regularly.In fact we often receive comments from prospective tenants that they only want to rent with our Agency because of how easy we are to communicate with.
