Benefits of a Property Manager

Benefits of a Property Manager

By Shana Mawhinney on Oct 06 2017

LJ Hooker’s experienced property managers are proud to partner with their landlords to provide a reliable income stream, advice for potential capital growth, and protection of their asset.

Experience on your side:  

Your property manager(s) may see hundreds of rental applications and are experienced at screening tenants, reference checking and reviewing rental history to ensure you receive high quality tenants. You of course have the final say as to who rents your property.

Avoid unpleasant confrontations:  

We are a buffer between you and the tenant. Your property manager helps deal with an array of problems such as late payments through to damaged property.

Tenants have someone to talk to right away. If an issue happens with the property, our property managers are more accessible to address problems at all hours of the day. Our negotiating power and relationships with trusted tradespeople ensure you get the best price on all maintenance jobs.

Decrease tenant turn over:  

We know how to keep tenants happy with our great customer service and happy tenants are more likely to want to stay and renew their lease.

On time rent:

Our property managers will work to ensure your tenants pay their rent on time. Consistent rent collection is the key to receiving rent payments on time and they will enforce lease policies if payments aren’t received. 

Less stress:  

Someone else is managing your property and tenants so you don’t have to worry as they will do most of the work for you.

Strict legislative requirements:

Private owners are bound by the same legislative requirements as property managers in their dealings with tenants. This means that if you are taking the task on yourself, you will need to stay up to date with constantly-changing legal requirements. So choosing a LJ Hooker property manager to manage your investment property is a wise decision that may save you time and money over the long term.

Reduce your risk:  

By engaging a LJ Hooker property manager you reduce the chance of having a vacant property therefore lowering your risk of lost income.
