4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Buy An Investment Property In Your Suburb

4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Buy An Investment Property In Your Suburb

  1. Concentrated Risk – especially if you already own one property in the area
  2. Emotions – you’ve got to leave emotions out of an investment decision
  3. Your Goals – your goals must be the priority over a location you love
  4. Time – it’s easy to make a fast decision on a property in your suburb, rather than spending extra time doing research on wider suburbs

Have you been sitting at home, minding your own business, when BAM!

Have you been sitting at home, minding your own business, when BAM!

All the power points stop working?

Your toaster – not working.

Your fridge – not working.

Your kettle – not working.

Lights are still on, but NONE of the power points are working at all!

We get these phone calls all the time from our tenants, and there’s usually a simple trick to fixing it, without even needing to send an electrician to your house.

Here’s what we ask our tenants to do.

First, we get them to go out to the power box and check if one of the safety switches has flicked off.

If it has, then we ask them to unplug all their appliances from the power points.

Then, we get them to go back to the power box and turn the safety switch back on.

And finally, we get all the appliances plugged back in, one by one, to figure out which appliance caused the fault.

Mostly, it’s just the toaster or the kettle that has become faulty and is throwing the power.

And it’s time for a new kettle or toaster!

And 9 times out of 10, this fixes the problem!

Without even sending an electrician out to the property!

Easy peasy!

Have you heard about the magic photo formula?

Have you heard about the magic photo formula?

There’s a magic photo formula for advertising a rental property!

Yes, we’re serious!  There’s an actual formula!

It’s actually a “bedroom to photo” ratio.

What that means is, when it’s time to find a new tenant for your investment property, you need great photos to attract a great tenant.

So, we apply the “bedroom to photo” ratio.

This means, for every number of bedrooms your property has, we include, at least, _______ (NUMBER OF PHOTOS) in our advertising campaign.

Got a 2 bedroom unit? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

Got a 3 bedroom townhouse? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

Got a 5 bedroom mansion? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

And that’s how we do it here at ____________ (AGENCY NAME)

Want to try our magic photo formula?

What do tenants look for in an apartment?

What do tenants look for in an apartment?

You need to make sure your property is close to shopping centres, schools, public transport options and lifestyle amenities such as restaurants and cafes. These factors are essential in attracting tenants, but it’s also important when it comes time to sell your investment property.

What improvements should you make to your investment property right now?

Paintwork – Remember to look at both inside and outside the property and plan for painting as required.

Window Furnishings – Keep your property looking fresh with functional blinds and curtains.  Sometimes just a simple dry-clean can be enough to freshen them up.

Flooring – Keep your floor coverings in great condition.  Easy care floors are the way to go, if you need to replace them.

Appliances – New appliances can increase the appeal of your property, especially if you’re looking for a new tenant.

Have you ever wondered if you’ve got a leak at your place?

Have you ever wondered if you’ve got a leak at your place?

You know, you get your water bill, and it’s waaaaay bigger than you expected!

I mean, sure, water isn’t as cheap as it used to be, but there’s still a chance you could have a leak somewhere.

It’s easy to figure out for yourself though, and it takes about 5 minutes.

Here’s the 2 steps you take to figure out if you’ve got a water leak:

Step 1 – Start by turning off ALL the taps in your house – including the washing machine, the fridge (if you have it connected to water), the automatic sprinkler system, and even the tap connected to your toilet.

Step 2 – Run out to your water meter (which is probably at the front of your block) and check to see if it’s ticking over.  If it’s ticking over and the numbers are going up, that means it’s sending water into your house somewhere.  And if all your taps are definitely turned off, you might have a water leak somewhere.

So, if you discover that you might have a water leak, and you rent through us here at ____________ (AGENCY NAME), make sure you __________ (LOG A MAINTENANCE REQUEST WITH US/SEND US A REPAIR REQUEST FORM/CLICK ON THE “REPAIR” BUTTON ON OUR WEBSITE/SEND US A MESSAGE) so we can get it checked for you right away!

Oh, and one more step!

Remember to turn your toilet water back on… or you’ll be in for a surprise the next time someone uses your toilet! 😂

There are 3 things I’ve noticed about the most successful property investors we work with.

There are 3 things I’ve noticed about the most successful property investors we work with.

  1. They plan.
  2. They work with professionals.
  3. And they’re not afraid to spend money.

Let me break this down for you.

Property Investors Plan.

This means that before they buy an investment property, they do research on the area, they map out their budget, and they create long term plans for wealth creation. And quite often, their plans are 10, 20 years or even longer!

If you need help with this planning and research part of the journey, give us a shout. We’ve got a new property investor planning pack we can send you! (MODIFY THIS SENTENCE TO MATCH THE “LEAD MAGNET” YOU CAN SEND SOMEONE – IT COULD BE A CHECKLIST, A GUIDE, A PACK, A VIDEO SERIES, A WEBINAR, ANYTHING)

Property Investors work with Professionals.

The challenge with investing in property is that there are so many variables. And you can’t possibly be expected to know all the things. So the most successful property investors have a few key professionals on their team:

  •  A mortgage broker – not just for the initial purchase of the property, but someone who will review their loan every 1-2 years and make sure they’re getting the best deal available. If you’re looking for a great mortgage broker, go say hi to ___________ (@TAG LOCAL MORTGAGE BROKER) and they’ll help you out!
  •  An accountant – even before you buy an investment property, you want to make sure you’re getting the best tax advice so you’re set up for success with your investment property. Want an accountant who knows their stuff with investment properties? Check out ____________ (@TAG LOCAL ACCOUNTANT) and get your free first consultation (MODIFY THAT LAST SENTENCE DEPENDING ON THE ACCOUNTANT YOU TAG)
  • A property manager – whether you’re looking for your first investment property, or you already have a portfolio of investment properties, you need a property manager who knows how to do a few important things:
    – How to calculate your annual yield on an investment property
    – How to help you cashflow forecast expenses
    – How to minimise vacancy (especially during difficult times like we’ve been through recently)
    – How to maximise annual returns, factoring in all expenses and all vacancy.

Remember, if you need someone who can help you with these important things on your investment property, hit us up with a message and we’ll help you out!

Property Investors Spend Money

Now, I don’t mean splashing money about willy-nilly. But the most successful property investors understand that properties require a combination of pro-active AND re-active maintenance, so they plan for those expenses.

Successful property investors work with their accountant and property manager to ensure that they know exactly how much money to allocate for spending each year and how to manage their cashflow wisely.

Want help with your property investment forecasting? Send us a message and we’ll send you through our annual expenses checklist! (MODIFY THIS SENTENCE TO MATCH THE “LEAD MAGNET” YOU CAN SEND SOMEONE – IT COULD BE A CHECKLIST, A GUIDE, A PACK, A VIDEO SERIES, A WEBINAR, ANYTHING)

Do you know how to calculate monthly rent?

Do you know how to calculate monthly rent?

You might be thinking that monthly rent is just 4 weeks rent, right?

But, if your property manager tells you this, they’re short changing you as a landlord.

It’s a little more complicated than just 4 weeks rent, but it’s a figure you need to know, if you’re going to allow your tenant to pay their rent monthly.

Here’s how we calculate monthly rent here at ____________ (YOUR AGENCY NAME).

Take the weekly rent and divide it by 7 days.

Take that daily rent amount and multiply it by 365 days for the year (366 if we’re in a leap year 😉 )

Then take that big yearly amount and divide it by 12 months.

Taa daa!!!

You’ve got your monthly rent!

And it’s more than 4 weeks rent, isn’t it?

Don’t get short-changed if your tenant is going to pay their rent monthly!

Do the maths, and you’ll be glad!

You’re special, you know that?

You’re special, you know that?

If you’re a property investor, you’re part of the (approximately) 8% of Australians who own an investment property.

And if you’re planning to buy an investment property soon, you’ll get to be part of that 8% too (although, we know you’re special too 😉)

So whether you’re already a property investor…

Or you’re planning on investing in property soon…

How many photos does it take to prepare a condition report?

Here’s a clue…

Its hundreds!

You know, before a tenant moves into your investment property, we prepare a condition report to ensure that your tenant leaves the property exactly the same way they found it (with fair wear and tear, of course).

But sometimes a written report just isn’t enough.

So, before a tenant moves into your investment property, we take at least ________ (NUMBER OF PHOTOS) of the whole house (inside and outside!) to make sure your investment property is protected.

Want to see an example of our reports and photos?

Shoot us a DM and we’ll send you an example!

Seriously, you might be surprised at how detailed these reports and photos are!

But you’ll be thrilled when it protects your investment property!

3 Things You MUST Have in Your Investment Property

3 Things You MUST Have in Your Investment Property

If you own an investment property here in ___________ (city/town).

Or maybe you’re thinking of buying an investment property here in the next 12 months.

There are 3 things you’ve gotta have in your investment property that will make it sooooooo much easier for you to get a great tenant (and a great return on your investment too!)

Now, obviously, aside from the legal and safety requirements for an investment property, here are the ____________ (NUMBER OF) things you need:

**I’VE PUT A COUPLE OF IDEAS FOR YOU HERE – YOU SELECT THE ONES THAT ARE GOING TO BEST SUIT YOUR AREA/MARKET OR ADD YOUR OWN! **

Number 1 – Air Conditioning

If you want to find a great tenant and keep them over this Summer, you need to have air conditioning in your property.  In fact, we find that properties in __________ (CITY/TOWN) with air conditioning tend to rent in ________ (NUMBER OF DAYS) on average, compared to properties without air conditioning that take closer to __________ (NUMBER OF DAYS) to rent.

Number 2 – Neutral Colour Scheme

While it can be tempting to throw a feature wall in Pantone’s colour of the year… But please don’t!  Sure, the colour might be trending, but it’s actually easiest to get higher rent prices when your investment property has a neutral colour scheme.

If you really want to use some trending colours in your investment property, ask your property manager to organise virtual furniture in your marketing photos and include pops of trendy colours in there.  That way, you won’t be making permanent colour decisions in your actual décor.

Number 3 – Street Number

This might sound silly, but not every house or apartment is clearly marked with their street number!

And in a world of working from home and online shopping, it’s very important that your property is clearly labelled with your street number.  In fact, if it’s not, you might be missing out on good quality tenants!

So, check your letterbox, or your apartment building to make sure that the number is clearly visible.

Number 4 – Up to date handles

Regardless of how old your kitchen or bathroom is, doing a quick update on your cupboard handles make ALL the difference to the feel of these two rooms.

So, check the handles in your investment property and get them replaced with up to date (and affordable) alternatives to make your kitchen and bathroom look fresh and modern.

Number 5 – Outdoor lighting.

Now, this doesn’t mean you need fancy outdoor lights, or even sensor lights that switch on when someone walks past.  You just need to have some kind of lighting to help you tenants get from their car to their front door.

If you own an investment property in a modern apartment complex, you’re probably all sorted with this one. But if you own a free-standing house and your garage or carport is separate to the house, you want to have some kind of lighting to help your tenants safely get inside at night.

Number 6 – Easy-care gardens

Whether you have a huge backyard, or a tiny little courtyard, you want to make it easy for your tenants to care for the gardens.  In fact, if you have really fancy gardens, this can discourage tenants from applying for your property.  They’re just worried that they won’t be able to look after your gardens well.

So make your gardens easy to care for OR include a gardening service as part of the lease agreement!

When was the last time you checked your rental returns?

When was the last time you checked your rental returns?

There are 3 keys you need to check when you’re looking at your rental returns:

1️⃣  Rent coming in each year

You want to make sure that you’re achieving optimised gross rent each year. This means, reviewing the rent at least annually (sometimes even more often).

So when was the last time you had a rent review on your investment property?

2️⃣  Regular maintenance expenses

Sure, you’re going to have regular expenses on your investment property.

Rates

Insurance

Interest and fees from your bank

Minor repairs

Pest treatments

Smoke alarm maintenance

The usual.

Make sure you’ve got these expenses mapped out into your cashflow plan so that they don’t take you by surprise. In fact, you’re best to work with your property manager to help map these out in to your annual plan so that those bills can be covered by your gross rent.

Need help with creating this cashflow plan? Shoot us a message and we can help out.

3️⃣  Capital expenses

These are the big expenses, like:

Hot water system

Carpets

Painting

Kitchen or bathroom renovation

The truth is, if you hang onto you investment property for 7-10 years (or more), you’re probably going to have to put your hand into your pocket to cover these expenses.

So, work with your property manager to ensure that you’re not surprised by these expenses and even factor them into your cashflow plan.

And remember to depreciate these capital expenses in your tax return!

Need help with this cashflow planning?

Q. What is Property Staging?

Q. What is Property Staging?

A. Property staging is the preparation of property for sale or rent in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers or tenants, with the goal of selling or renting it as quickly as possible, and for the best price.

Just when you think it’s over…

So the lease on your investment property is coming to an end.

But what does that mean?

In fact, if you want your tenant to move out, you have to give them______ (DAYS/MONTHS) notice before their lease ends.

But what if you’ve got a great tenant and you want to keep them?

We highly recommend that, before your lease expires, you offer your tenants a new lease to sign and secure them as your tenants for another fixed period of time.  It’s a great way to offer security for you and your tenants!

Here at ___________ (AGENCY NAME) we use __________ (@TAG PHOTOGRAPHER) to do a pro photo shoot on your property so it looks as amazing as it really is!

Why do we ask for sooooooo much information on a tenancy application?

Why do we ask for sooooooo much information on a tenancy application?

The truth is, when you apply to rent a property through our office, we’re considering giving you the keys to a property, so we need to double check so many things.

Here are the things we need to check:

Your Identification – we need to ensure that we can identify you, so that when we draw up a lease agreement we list all the adults and their legal names on the agreement.

Your Income – we know this is very personal information to ask, and we are careful to keep this information very secure.  Just as a bank would check your income to make sure you can pay for a mortgage, we need to do the same thing to check that you can pay the rent.

Your History – if you’ve rented before, we’ll want to check your rental history. But don’t stress if you haven’t rented before. We can talk to you about verifying your history in other ways.

So even though it feels like so much work to apply for a rental property, we’ll do everything we can to make it as painless as possible!

When was the last time you had a rent review on your investment property?

When was the last time you had a rent review on your investment property?

The market has changed a lot in the last 12 months, so you need to check the rental returns on your property.

So, how do you complete a rent review?

It’s a 3 step process.

Step 1 – List the features of the property.

This means, how many bedrooms, bathrooms, garages, carports, off-street parking, built in wardrobes, laundry facilities, appliances and more.

Step 2 – Assess the age of the features in the property

How modern the property is has a big impact on the rent you can achieve. So assessing the age of the property and its features is very important.

Step 3 – Compare it to other similar properties in your area.

Run a report showing all the other similar properties in your area.  It’s important to compare the basic features of the property (bedrooms/bathrooms/car accommodation) as well as the additional features (like built in wardrobes, appliances, etc), and also the age of the property and its features.

You’ll also want to check how long other properties in your area took to secure a tenant as this will also help you determine the rent for your property too.

So, sure, you can do the 3 steps yourself (if you want).

Or, you can send us a DM and we’ll use our special software to do it all for you and send you back your updated rent review.

Want to see behind the scenes?

Before a tenant moves into one of our properties, we conduct a full inspection of the home.

And, while we always create a written report (that’s required by law).

We also include hundreds of photos with this report.

Now, it might seem over the top with all these photos.

But, it saves so much stress later on!

Because, if we have photos of everything inside (and outside) a property…

There’s never any doubt when the tenancy is over.

So, it’s a fair bit of work behind the scenes.

But it’s totally worth it in the end!

Why is it so complicated to apply for a rental property?

Why is it so complicated to apply for a rental property?

Why do we ask for so much information with your rental application form?

The truth is, when you apply to rent a property through our office, we’re considering giving you the keys to a property, so we need to double check so many things.

Here are the things we need to check:

Your Identification – we need to ensure that we can identify you, so that when we draw up a lease agreement we list all the adults and their legal names on the agreement.

Your Income – we know this is very personal information to ask, and we are careful to keep this information very secure.  Just as a bank would check your income to make sure you can pay for a mortgage, we need to do the same thing to check that you can pay the rent.

Your History – if you’ve rented before, we’ll want to check your rental history. But don’t stress if you haven’t rented before. We can talk to you about verifying your history in other ways.

So even though it feels like so much work to apply for a rental property, we’ll do everything we can to make it as painless as possible!

Sometimes I feel a bit like a matchmaker.

First, a landlord client comes to me. They have a great property that is sitting empty.

And that property needs the perfect person to live in it.

So, I get to work on finding the perfect match for this property.

But it’s a two-way match.

I’m not just looking for a tenant to fall in love with the property…

But I’m looking for to make sure that while the tenant loves the property, they will also care for the property like it’s their own.

Do you know the secret to getting great tenants for your rental property?

Do you know the secret to getting great tenants for your rental property?

It’s probably not what you think.

The secret is “arriving 15 minutes early”.

Arriving 15 minutes early at a rental open home is the biggest secret to getting a great tenant for your rental property.

Here’s why it’s the secret…

The best tenants are usually the most organised.

Which means, they’re usually a couple of minutes early to any rental open home.

So you know what that means?

We have to be there even earlier!

Why?

We need to have time to do a few important things:

✔️ Open the blinds and curtains

✔️ Turn on the lights

✔️ Unlock the back door

✔️ Set up application forms for all the great tenants who are coming through the property

✔️ Put out water bottles for our guest tenants

✔️ Lay out local community information for new residents of the neighbourhood

Once we’ve got everything set up, then we’re ready to welcome all the best tenants to your property and invite them to apply to live here.

And that’s the biggest secret to getting great tenants for your rental property.

But shhhh….

Don’t tell anyone 😉

Have you been sitting at home, minding your own business, when BAM!

Have you been sitting at home, minding your own business, when BAM!

All the power points stop working?

Your toaster – not working.

Your fridge – not working.

Your kettle – not working.

Lights are still on, but NONE of the power points are working at all!

We get these phone calls all the time from our tenants, and there’s usually a simple trick to fixing it, without even needing to send an electrician to your house.

Here’s what we ask our tenants to do.

First, we get them to go out to the power box and check if one of the safety switches has flicked off.

If it has, then we ask them to unplug all their appliances from the power points.

Then, we get them to go back to the power box and turn the safety switch back on.

And finally, we get all the appliances plugged back in, one by one, to figure out which appliance caused the fault.

Mostly, it’s just the toaster or the kettle that has become faulty and is throwing the power.

And it’s time for a new kettle or toaster!

And 9 times out of 10, this fixes the problem!

Without even sending an electrician out to the property!

Easy peasy!

Have you heard about the magic photo formula?

Have you heard about the magic photo formula?

There’s a magic photo formula for advertising a rental property!

Yes, we’re serious!  There’s an actual formula!

It’s actually a “bedroom to photo” ratio.

What that means is, when it’s time to find a new tenant for your investment property, you need great photos to attract a great tenant.

So, we apply the “bedroom to photo” ratio.

This means, for every number of bedrooms your property has, we include, at least, _______ (NUMBER OF PHOTOS) in our advertising campaign.

Got a 2 bedroom unit? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

Got a 3 bedroom townhouse? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

Got a 5 bedroom mansion? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

And that’s how we do it here at ____________ (AGENCY NAME)

We have a little short cut for our property investor clients.

A little cheat, if you will. 😉

You know what it’s like, when you’re coming up to tax time, and you’re trying to organise your paperwork.

And you’re going through all your monthly statements from your property manager…

And you’re trying to find all the invoices for all the repairs you paid for this year…

And it’s frustrating, and disorganised and stressful.

We have a special hack, just for our property investor clients.

And it makes life

So.

Much.

Easier.

If you’re one of our property investor clients, we give you login details to our own rental management software.

And you can GIVE those login details to your accountant.

Then, your accountant can log in, find all the paperwork they need, and take care of the whole thing for you.

And you don’t even have to think about it!

Would you like avoid this stress next year?

Shoot us a message and we can take care of everything for you for next financial year!

When was the last time you had an annual rent review on your investment property?

When was the last time you had an annual rent review on your investment property?

If you haven’t had once recently, it’s time to check your rental returns.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1 – First, we run a full report on your exact property address, to check the current market rent for your property.

Step 2 – Then, we analyse your annual expenses on your investment property.

Step 3 – Next, we check your annual rent lost on vacancy over the last 12 months, and compare that to local averages.

Step 4 – Finally, we make recommendations to you around the best ways to minimise your expenses (or at least spacing them out over time) and improving the overall annual returns for your own investment property.

Simple really!

Would you like an annual rent review on your investment property?

Send us a DM/Shoot us an email/Click this link to request your own annual rent review

And we can do it for you even if we don’t manage your property for you!

How do we find the greatest tenants for your investment property?

How do we find the greatest tenants for your investment property?

Well, there’s a secret formula we follow…

Step 1 – we get you a pro photo shoot.

You know, for just _________ ($$$$) we can get you a portfolio of gorgeous photos of your investment property AND a floorplan to go with it!

This makes it so much easier for potential tenants to check out your property and make them want to come and inspect it!

Step 2 – we hit our database.

Here at ___________ (AGENCY NAME) we have a list of over _________ (NUMBER) of tenants who are looking to rent a property in ___________ (SUBURB/SUBURBS).

So, before we even start marketing your property, we check with our pre-qualified tenants.

Now, in most cases, that’s ALL we have to do to find you a great tenant.

But sometimes, when we want to create even more buzz on your property (to get even more people interested in your property).

Step 3 – we hit “publish”.

This means we send your property live on ALL the major property portals.  That means __________ (LIST ALL THE PORTALS YOU’RE USING: REA, DOMAIN, RENT, HOMELY, ETC).

Your property will get seen by over _________ (NUMBER) of people and we’re seeing _________ (NUMBER) of rental enquiries (ON AVERAGE) on every single property we advertise.

And that’s how it’s done.

That’s how we find the greatest tenants for your property!

Want help getting a great tenant for your property before _________ (CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR/THE END OF THIS MONTH)?

How many photos does it take to prepare a condition report?

How many photos does it take to prepare a condition report?

Here’s a clue…

Its hundreds!

You know, before a tenant moves into your investment property, we prepare a condition report to ensure that your tenant leaves the property exactly the same way they found it (with fair wear and tear, of course).

But sometimes a written report just isn’t enough.

So, before a tenant moves into your investment property, we take at least ________ (NUMBER OF PHOTOS) of the whole house (inside and outside!) to make sure your investment property is protected.

Want to see an example of our reports and photos?

Shoot us a DM and we’ll send you an example!

Seriously, you might be surprised at how detailed these reports and photos are!

But you’ll be thrilled when it protects your investment property!

** Tell a story about leasing a property quickly.  You could follow a formula like this:  AFTER SITTING EMPTY FOR 3 WEEKS, THE OWNER OF THIS PROPERTY CALLED US TO HELP THEM SECURE A NEW TENANT.

WE WORKED OUR MAGIC AND DID A COUPLE OF THINGS:

✅ WE ORGANISED NEW PHOTOS OF THE PROPERTY – THE OLD PHOTOS JUST DIDN’T DO THE HOUSE JUSTICE!

✅ WE ADDED SOME VIRTUAL FURNITURE TO THE IMAGES – IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR TENANTS TO IMAGINE WHAT THEIR OWN FURNITURE WOULD LOOK LIKE WHEN WE DO THIS.

✅ WE CREATED A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE PROPERTY – AND WE ACTUALLY HAD 154 VIEWS OF THE VIRTUAL TOUR WITHIN THE FIRST WEEK! 😱 **

True or False?

True or False?

You HAVE to allow pets in your rental property.

If you own an investment property here in ________________ (STATE) it’s ____________ (TRUE/FALSE)!

You ___________ (DO/DO NOT) have to allow pets in your investment property.

**EXPLAIN YOUR STATE/TERRITORY’S LAWS ON KEEPING PETS AT RENTAL PROPERTIES, AND EXPLAIN WHAT THE OBLIGATION OF THE TENANT IS IF THEY DO HAVE PETS AT THE PROPERTY**

But here’s the great news!

We know that pets are part of the family, so when we take a rental application, we also take a pet application form too!

That way, we always know exactly who is living in your investment property (including the furry family members!)

So, did you guess right?

Did you guess true or false?

When was the last time you checked your rental returns?

When was the last time you checked your rental returns?

There are 3 keys you need to check when you’re looking at your rental returns:

1️⃣  Rent coming in each year

You want to make sure that you’re achieving optimised gross rent each year. This means, reviewing the rent at least annually (sometimes even more often).

So when was the last time you had a rent review on your investment property?

2️⃣  Regular maintenance expenses

Sure, you’re going to have regular expenses on your investment property.

Rates

Insurance

Interest and fees from your bank

Minor repairs

Pest treatments

Smoke alarm maintenance

The usual.

Make sure you’ve got these expenses mapped out into your cashflow plan so that they don’t take you by surprise. In fact, you’re best to work with your property manager to help map these out in to your annual plan so that those bills can be covered by your gross rent.

Need help with creating this cashflow plan? Shoot us a message and we can help out.

3️⃣  Capital expenses

These are the big expenses, like:

Hot water system

Carpets

Painting

Kitchen or bathroom renovation

The truth is, if you hang onto you investment property for 7-10 years (or more), you’re probably going to have to put your hand into your pocket to cover these expenses.

So, work with your property manager to ensure that you’re not surprised by these expenses and even factor them into your cashflow plan.

And remember to depreciate these capital expenses in your tax return!

Why do you get out of bed in the morning?

Why do you get out of bed in the morning?

For ____________ (@TAG TEAM MEMBER) it’s the smell of coffee that his/her _________ (HUSBAND/WIFE/PARTNER/HOUSEMATE/CHILD) is brewing at 6am and the excitement of showing great tenants through our awesome properties.

We love helping families find an awesome home to live in…

And we love helping property investors find great tenants to look after their investment.

And it really does make us leap out of bed in the mornings.

Okay, so maybe we don’t actually leap out of bed.

But it does put a spring in our step and make us excited

What are you afraid of?

What are you afraid of?

Maybe it’s spiders, or snakes, or maybe it’s heights?

Heck, I can’t stand getting up on the top rung of a ladder!

Anyone else relate? 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️

But that’s not my only fear.

I also worry about setting myself up for the future.

And I want the people I love to have a secure future too.

So that’s why I love property investment so much.

I’ve always felt like property is the investment that I can understand the most and feels tangible and secure.

And many of the wealthiest people in the world swear by property as an investment.

So that’s why I’m passionate about helping people in their property investing journey.

What are you passionate about?

What are your 3 top tools for work?

What are your 3 top tools for work?

Here are mine:

1️⃣ – My Phone

Let’s face it, you can’t get by without it.

But my phone is more than just a way for the kids to call me, or my mum to text me…

It’s really a Property Manager’s office.

I can take you for a virtual tour through a property, using my phone.

I can show a leaking tap to a plumber, thanks to my phone.

And I can check on all our tenants rent payments, right there on my trusty phone.

2️⃣ – A Microfibre Cloth

When you’re a property manager, you’re in and out of empty houses all the time.

And you want the houses looking their sparkly best.

So a damp microfibre cloth is like a magic wand.

A quick wipe over the window sills and kitchen bench before an open home, and that helps us attract the best tenants around.

3️⃣ My _________ (@TAG BRAND) Reusable Coffee Cup

Since I’m always out and about, I’ve gotta keep that coffee hot, and my __________ (@TAG BRAND) coffee cup works a treat!

Do you have a reusable coffee cup too?  What brand do you love?

  2. It’s time to get your air conditioner serviced!

4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Buy An Investment Property In Your Suburb

4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Buy An Investment Property In Your Suburb

  1. Concentrated Risk – especially if you already own one property in the area
  2. Emotions – you’ve got to leave emotions out of an investment decision
  3. Your Goals – your goals must be the priority over a location you love
  4. Time – it’s easy to make a fast decision on a property in your suburb, rather than spending extra time doing research on wider suburbs

Have you been sitting at home, minding your own business, when BAM!

Have you been sitting at home, minding your own business, when BAM!

All the power points stop working?

Your toaster – not working.

Your fridge – not working.

Your kettle – not working.

Lights are still on, but NONE of the power points are working at all!

We get these phone calls all the time from our tenants, and there’s usually a simple trick to fixing it, without even needing to send an electrician to your house.

Here’s what we ask our tenants to do.

First, we get them to go out to the power box and check if one of the safety switches has flicked off.

If it has, then we ask them to unplug all their appliances from the power points.

Then, we get them to go back to the power box and turn the safety switch back on.

And finally, we get all the appliances plugged back in, one by one, to figure out which appliance caused the fault.

Mostly, it’s just the toaster or the kettle that has become faulty and is throwing the power.

And it’s time for a new kettle or toaster!

And 9 times out of 10, this fixes the problem!

Without even sending an electrician out to the property!

Easy peasy!

Have you heard about the magic photo formula?

Have you heard about the magic photo formula?

There’s a magic photo formula for advertising a rental property!

Yes, we’re serious!  There’s an actual formula!

It’s actually a “bedroom to photo” ratio.

What that means is, when it’s time to find a new tenant for your investment property, you need great photos to attract a great tenant.

So, we apply the “bedroom to photo” ratio.

This means, for every number of bedrooms your property has, we include, at least, _______ (NUMBER OF PHOTOS) in our advertising campaign.

Got a 2 bedroom unit? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

Got a 3 bedroom townhouse? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

Got a 5 bedroom mansion? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

And that’s how we do it here at ____________ (AGENCY NAME)

Want to try our magic photo formula?

Send us a DM and we’ll show you how it’s done!

What do tenants look for in an apartment?

What do tenants look for in an apartment?

You need to make sure your property is close to shopping centres, schools, public transport options and lifestyle amenities such as restaurants and cafes. These factors are essential in attracting tenants, but it’s also important when it comes time to sell your investment property.

What improvements should you make to your investment property right now?

Paintwork – Remember to look at both inside and outside the property and plan for painting as required.

Window Furnishings – Keep your property looking fresh with functional blinds and curtains.  Sometimes just a simple dry-clean can be enough to freshen them up.

Flooring – Keep your floor coverings in great condition.  Easy care floors are the way to go, if you need to replace them.

Appliances – New appliances can increase the appeal of your property, especially if you’re looking for a new tenant.

4 Things to Organise BEFORE Tax Time Arrives

4 Things to Organise BEFORE Tax Time Arrives

  1. Check your Insurances to make sure you’re getting the best cover
  2. Review your credit cards to make sure you’re getting competitive rates and loyalty programs
  3. Check your rental prices to make sure you’re pricing is fair and in line with the market. This will help you keep great tenants.
  4. Review your loan interest rates and payment options

Thinking of buying an investment property sometime soon?

Thinking of buying an investment property sometime soon?

So, what do you need to consider when you’re buying your first (or next) investment property?

Here are 3 things to consider:

  1.   Your long-term financial plans. If you haven’t spent time with your accountant and financial planner yet, now is the time. Get clear on your financial goals and get some great advice from those professionals. Need an awesome accountant? Go see __________ (@TAG YOUR FAVOURITE ACCOUNTANT).  And if you need an amazing financial planner, book some time in with __________ (@TAG YOUR FAVOURITE FINANCIAL PLANNER).
  2.   The rental market.  Get to know a great property manager in the area you’re looking to purchase and get advice on the local rental market from that property manager.  Need someone awesome? Send us a message – we got you covered! 😉
  3.   Your borrowing capacity.  It’s time to find out what you can borrow. Book an appointment with _____________ (@TAG YOUR FAVOURITE MORTGAGE BROKER) and discover what you can borrow.

Getting yourself sorted right now will set you up to be ready to purchase your first (or your next) investment property and set yourself up for the future.

How is Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) calculated?

LMI is calculated in different ways, depending on the insurer. Your premiums will vary based on your loan amount, deposit amount, loan type and your employment status.

The amazing team at _____________ (TAG YOUR FAVOURITE MORTGAGE BROKER) can help you calculate yours!

Have you ever wondered if you’ve got a leak at your place?

Have you ever wondered if you’ve got a leak at your place?

You know, you get your water bill, and it’s waaaaay bigger than you expected!

I mean, sure, water isn’t as cheap as it used to be, but there’s still a chance you could have a leak somewhere.

It’s easy to figure out for yourself though, and it takes about 5 minutes.

Here’s the 2 steps you take to figure out if you’ve got a water leak:

Step 1 – Start by turning off ALL the taps in your house – including the washing machine, the fridge (if you have it connected to water), the automatic sprinkler system, and even the tap connected to your toilet.

Step 2 – Run out to your water meter (which is probably at the front of your block) and check to see if it’s ticking over.  If it’s ticking over and the numbers are going up, that means it’s sending water into your house somewhere.  And if all your taps are definitely turned off, you might have a water leak somewhere.

So, if you discover that you might have a water leak, and you rent through us here at ____________ (AGENCY NAME), make sure you __________ (LOG A MAINTENANCE REQUEST WITH US/SEND US A REPAIR REQUEST FORM/CLICK ON THE “REPAIR” BUTTON ON OUR WEBSITE/SEND US A MESSAGE) so we can get it checked for you right away!

Oh, and one more step!

Remember to turn your toilet water back on… or you’ll be in for a surprise the next time someone uses your toilet! 😂

There are 3 things I’ve noticed about the most successful property investors we work with.

There are 3 things I’ve noticed about the most successful property investors we work with.

  1. They plan.
  2. They work with professionals.
  3. And they’re not afraid to spend money.

Let me break this down for you.

Property Investors Plan.

This means that before they buy an investment property, they do research on the area, they map out their budget, and they create long term plans for wealth creation. And quite often, their plans are 10, 20 years or even longer!

If you need help with this planning and research part of the journey, give us a shout. We’ve got a new property investor planning pack we can send you! (MODIFY THIS SENTENCE TO MATCH THE “LEAD MAGNET” YOU CAN SEND SOMEONE – IT COULD BE A CHECKLIST, A GUIDE, A PACK, A VIDEO SERIES, A WEBINAR, ANYTHING)

Property Investors work with Professionals.

The challenge with investing in property is that there are so many variables. And you can’t possibly be expected to know all the things. So the most successful property investors have a few key professionals on their team:

  •  A mortgage broker – not just for the initial purchase of the property, but someone who will review their loan every 1-2 years and make sure they’re getting the best deal available. If you’re looking for a great mortgage broker, go say hi to ___________ (@TAG LOCAL MORTGAGE BROKER) and they’ll help you out!
  •  An accountant – even before you buy an investment property, you want to make sure you’re getting the best tax advice so you’re set up for success with your investment property. Want an accountant who knows their stuff with investment properties? Check out ____________ (@TAG LOCAL ACCOUNTANT) and get your free first consultation (MODIFY THAT LAST SENTENCE DEPENDING ON THE ACCOUNTANT YOU TAG)
  • A property manager – whether you’re looking for your first investment property, or you already have a portfolio of investment properties, you need a property manager who knows how to do a few important things:
    – How to calculate your annual yield on an investment property
    – How to help you cashflow forecast expenses
    – How to minimise vacancy (especially during difficult times like we’ve been through recently)
    – How to maximise annual returns, factoring in all expenses and all vacancy.

Remember, if you need someone who can help you with these important things on your investment property, hit us up with a message and we’ll help you out!

Property Investors Spend Money

Now, I don’t mean splashing money about willy-nilly. But the most successful property investors understand that properties require a combination of pro-active AND re-active maintenance, so they plan for those expenses.

Successful property investors work with their accountant and property manager to ensure that they know exactly how much money to allocate for spending each year and how to manage their cashflow wisely.

Want help with your property investment forecasting? Send us a message and we’ll send you through our annual expenses checklist! (MODIFY THIS SENTENCE TO MATCH THE “LEAD MAGNET” YOU CAN SEND SOMEONE – IT COULD BE A CHECKLIST, A GUIDE, A PACK, A VIDEO SERIES, A WEBINAR, ANYTHING)

Do you know how to calculate monthly rent?

Do you know how to calculate monthly rent?

You might be thinking that monthly rent is just 4 weeks rent, right?

But, if your property manager tells you this, they’re short changing you as a landlord.

It’s a little more complicated than just 4 weeks rent, but it’s a figure you need to know, if you’re going to allow your tenant to pay their rent monthly.

Here’s how we calculate monthly rent here at ____________ (YOUR AGENCY NAME).

Take the weekly rent and divide it by 7 days.

Take that daily rent amount and multiply it by 365 days for the year (366 if we’re in a leap year 😉 )

Then take that big yearly amount and divide it by 12 months.

Taa daa!!!

You’ve got your monthly rent!

And it’s more than 4 weeks rent, isn’t it?

Don’t get short-changed if your tenant is going to pay their rent monthly!

Do the maths, and you’ll be glad!

You’re special, you know that?

You’re special, you know that?

If you’re a property investor, you’re part of the (approximately) 8% of Australians who own an investment property.

And if you’re planning to buy an investment property soon, you’ll get to be part of that 8% too (although, we know you’re special too 😉)

So whether you’re already a property investor…

Or you’re planning on investing in property soon…

How many photos does it take to prepare a condition report?

Here’s a clue…

Its hundreds!

You know, before a tenant moves into your investment property, we prepare a condition report to ensure that your tenant leaves the property exactly the same way they found it (with fair wear and tear, of course).

But sometimes a written report just isn’t enough.

So, before a tenant moves into your investment property, we take at least ________ (NUMBER OF PHOTOS) of the whole house (inside and outside!) to make sure your investment property is protected.

Want to see an example of our reports and photos?

Shoot us a DM and we’ll send you an example!

Seriously, you might be surprised at how detailed these reports and photos are!

But you’ll be thrilled when it protects your investment property!

3 Things You MUST Have in Your Investment Property

3 Things You MUST Have in Your Investment Property

If you own an investment property here in ___________ (city/town).

Or maybe you’re thinking of buying an investment property here in the next 12 months.

There are 3 things you’ve gotta have in your investment property that will make it sooooooo much easier for you to get a great tenant (and a great return on your investment too!)

Now, obviously, aside from the legal and safety requirements for an investment property, here are the ____________ (NUMBER OF) things you need:

**I’VE PUT A COUPLE OF IDEAS FOR YOU HERE – YOU SELECT THE ONES THAT ARE GOING TO BEST SUIT YOUR AREA/MARKET OR ADD YOUR OWN! **

Number 1 – Air Conditioning

If you want to find a great tenant and keep them over this Summer, you need to have air conditioning in your property.  In fact, we find that properties in __________ (CITY/TOWN) with air conditioning tend to rent in ________ (NUMBER OF DAYS) on average, compared to properties without air conditioning that take closer to __________ (NUMBER OF DAYS) to rent.

Number 2 – Neutral Colour Scheme

While it can be tempting to throw a feature wall in Pantone’s colour of the year… But please don’t!  Sure, the colour might be trending, but it’s actually easiest to get higher rent prices when your investment property has a neutral colour scheme.

If you really want to use some trending colours in your investment property, ask your property manager to organise virtual furniture in your marketing photos and include pops of trendy colours in there.  That way, you won’t be making permanent colour decisions in your actual décor.

Number 3 – Street Number

This might sound silly, but not every house or apartment is clearly marked with their street number!

And in a world of working from home and online shopping, it’s very important that your property is clearly labelled with your street number.  In fact, if it’s not, you might be missing out on good quality tenants!

So, check your letterbox, or your apartment building to make sure that the number is clearly visible.

Number 4 – Up to date handles

Regardless of how old your kitchen or bathroom is, doing a quick update on your cupboard handles make ALL the difference to the feel of these two rooms.

So, check the handles in your investment property and get them replaced with up to date (and affordable) alternatives to make your kitchen and bathroom look fresh and modern.

Number 5 – Outdoor lighting.

Now, this doesn’t mean you need fancy outdoor lights, or even sensor lights that switch on when someone walks past.  You just need to have some kind of lighting to help you tenants get from their car to their front door.

If you own an investment property in a modern apartment complex, you’re probably all sorted with this one. But if you own a free-standing house and your garage or carport is separate to the house, you want to have some kind of lighting to help your tenants safely get inside at night.

Number 6 – Easy-care gardens

Whether you have a huge backyard, or a tiny little courtyard, you want to make it easy for your tenants to care for the gardens.  In fact, if you have really fancy gardens, this can discourage tenants from applying for your property.  They’re just worried that they won’t be able to look after your gardens well.

So make your gardens easy to care for OR include a gardening service as part of the lease agreement!

When was the last time you checked your rental returns?

When was the last time you checked your rental returns?

There are 3 keys you need to check when you’re looking at your rental returns:

1️⃣  Rent coming in each year

You want to make sure that you’re achieving optimised gross rent each year. This means, reviewing the rent at least annually (sometimes even more often).

So when was the last time you had a rent review on your investment property?

2️⃣  Regular maintenance expenses

Sure, you’re going to have regular expenses on your investment property.

Rates

Insurance

Interest and fees from your bank

Minor repairs

Pest treatments

Smoke alarm maintenance

The usual.

Make sure you’ve got these expenses mapped out into your cashflow plan so that they don’t take you by surprise. In fact, you’re best to work with your property manager to help map these out in to your annual plan so that those bills can be covered by your gross rent.

Need help with creating this cashflow plan? Shoot us a message and we can help out.

3️⃣  Capital expenses

These are the big expenses, like:

Hot water system

Carpets

Painting

Kitchen or bathroom renovation

The truth is, if you hang onto you investment property for 7-10 years (or more), you’re probably going to have to put your hand into your pocket to cover these expenses.

So, work with your property manager to ensure that you’re not surprised by these expenses and even factor them into your cashflow plan.

And remember to depreciate these capital expenses in your tax return!

Need help with this cashflow planning?

Why did you invest in property?

Was it because you bought another family home and rented out your first home?

Q. What is Property Staging?

Q. What is Property Staging?

A. Property staging is the preparation of property for sale or rent in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers or tenants, with the goal of selling or renting it as quickly as possible, and for the best price.

Just when you think it’s over…

Just when you think it’s over…

Maybe it isn’t just yet…

So the lease on your investment property is coming to an end.

But what does that mean?

Does it mean that your tenant automatically has to move out on that day?

Or can they stay in your property?

You might not know that in __________ (LIST YOUR STATE) when a lease expires______________ EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR OFFICE WHEN A LEASE EXPIRES. OUTLINE HOW MUCH NOTICE YOU NEED TO GIVE IF YOU WANT YOUR TENANT TO LEAVE OR WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR TENANT.  HERE’S AN EXAMPLE:

In fact, if you want your tenant to move out, you have to give them______ (DAYS/MONTHS) notice before their lease ends.

But what if you’ve got a great tenant and you want to keep them?

We highly recommend that, before your lease expires, you offer your tenants a new lease to sign and secure them as your tenants for another fixed period of time.  It’s a great way to offer security for you and your tenants!

Do you have a lease expiring soon?

Send us a DM here and we can help you negotiate your lease ending or renewing!

Before and after

Before and after

Have you seen this?

Have you ever looked at a property ad online and thought “oh dear… that place looks awful”

Well, it’s probably not an awful property, its probably just awful photos!

Truth is, there’s an simple way to make a property look great, but most PMs don’t do it!

Here at ___________ (AGENCY NAME) we use __________ (@TAG PHOTOGRAPHER) to do a pro photo shoot on your property so it looks as amazing as it really is!

And great photos mean you’ll attract great tenants!

When was the last time you had a photo shoot at your investment property?

What happens when your tenant moves out?

What happens when your tenant moves out?

If you’ve got a property and your tenant is moving out soon, you probably need to be prepared for what happens once they move out.

Here’s what happens when our tenants move out:

EXPLAIN THE PROCESS OF A TENANT MOVING OUT AND WHAT YOUR OFFICE DOES TO ENSURE THAT THE PROPERTY IS LEFT IN THE SAME CONDITION.

So, if your property is about to become vacant, and you want help making sure that your tenants leave your property in the same condition they found it (subject to wear and tear of course!), send us a DM and we can help you!

Why do we ask for sooooooo much information on a tenancy application?

Why do we ask for sooooooo much information on a tenancy application?

The truth is, when you apply to rent a property through our office, we’re considering giving you the keys to a property, so we need to double check so many things.

Here are the things we need to check:

Your Identification – we need to ensure that we can identify you, so that when we draw up a lease agreement we list all the adults and their legal names on the agreement.

Your Income – we know this is very personal information to ask, and we are careful to keep this information very secure.  Just as a bank would check your income to make sure you can pay for a mortgage, we need to do the same thing to check that you can pay the rent.

Your History – if you’ve rented before, we’ll want to check your rental history. But don’t stress if you haven’t rented before. We can talk to you about verifying your history in other ways.

So even though it feels like so much work to apply for a rental property, we’ll do everything we can to make it as painless as possible!

Have you got any questions about applying for a rental property?

When was the last time you had a rent review on your investment property?

When was the last time you had a rent review on your investment property?

The market has changed a lot in the last 12 months, so you need to check the rental returns on your property.

So, how do you complete a rent review?

It’s a 3 step process.

Step 1 – List the features of the property.

This means, how many bedrooms, bathrooms, garages, carports, off-street parking, built in wardrobes, laundry facilities, appliances and more.

Step 2 – Assess the age of the features in the property

How modern the property is has a big impact on the rent you can achieve. So assessing the age of the property and its features is very important.

Step 3 – Compare it to other similar properties in your area.

Run a report showing all the other similar properties in your area.  It’s important to compare the basic features of the property (bedrooms/bathrooms/car accommodation) as well as the additional features (like built in wardrobes, appliances, etc), and also the age of the property and its features.

You’ll also want to check how long other properties in your area took to secure a tenant as this will also help you determine the rent for your property too.

So, sure, you can do the 3 steps yourself (if you want).

Or, you can send us a DM and we’ll use our special software to do it all for you and send you back your updated rent review.

Want to see behind the scenes?

Want to see behind the scenes?

Before a tenant moves into one of our properties, we conduct a full inspection of the home.

And, while we always create a written report (that’s required by law).

We also include hundreds of photos with this report.

Now, it might seem over the top with all these photos.

But, it saves so much stress later on!

Because, if we have photos of everything inside (and outside) a property…

There’s never any doubt when the tenancy is over.

So, it’s a fair bit of work behind the scenes.

But it’s totally worth it in the end!

Why is it so complicated to apply for a rental property?

Why is it so complicated to apply for a rental property?

Why do we ask for so much information with your rental application form?

The truth is, when you apply to rent a property through our office, we’re considering giving you the keys to a property, so we need to double check so many things.

Here are the things we need to check:

Your Identification – we need to ensure that we can identify you, so that when we draw up a lease agreement we list all the adults and their legal names on the agreement.

Your Income – we know this is very personal information to ask, and we are careful to keep this information very secure.  Just as a bank would check your income to make sure you can pay for a mortgage, we need to do the same thing to check that you can pay the rent.

Your History – if you’ve rented before, we’ll want to check your rental history. But don’t stress if you haven’t rented before. We can talk to you about verifying your history in other ways.

So even though it feels like so much work to apply for a rental property, we’ll do everything we can to make it as painless as possible!

Check out this story from _____________ (name of client):

______________ (ABC Realty) gave us this simple 5 point checklist for getting better rental returns, so we followed that checklist, made a couple of improvements, only costing us $_________ and then we were able to get a brilliant tenant at $_____ a week more rent!

That little $__________ investment that ________(ABC Realty) suggested resulted in a $_____________ improvement in our annual rental returns!”

Sometimes I feel a bit like a matchmaker.

Sometimes I feel a bit like a matchmaker.

First, a landlord client comes to me. They have a great property that is sitting empty.

And that property needs the perfect person to live in it.

So, I get to work on finding the perfect match for this property.

But it’s a two-way match.

I’m not just looking for a tenant to fall in love with the property…

But I’m looking for to make sure that while the tenant loves the property, they will also care for the property like it’s their own.

Do you know the secret to getting great tenants for your rental property?

Do you know the secret to getting great tenants for your rental property?

It’s probably not what you think.

The secret is “arriving 15 minutes early”.

Arriving 15 minutes early at a rental open home is the biggest secret to getting a great tenant for your rental property.

Here’s why it’s the secret…

The best tenants are usually the most organised.

Which means, they’re usually a couple of minutes early to any rental open home.

So you know what that means?

We have to be there even earlier!

Why?

We need to have time to do a few important things:

✔️ Open the blinds and curtains

✔️ Turn on the lights

✔️ Unlock the back door

✔️ Set up application forms for all the great tenants who are coming through the property

✔️ Put out water bottles for our guest tenants

✔️ Lay out local community information for new residents of the neighbourhood

Once we’ve got everything set up, then we’re ready to welcome all the best tenants to your property and invite them to apply to live here.

And that’s the biggest secret to getting great tenants for your rental property.

But shhhh….

Don’t tell anyone 😉

Have you been sitting at home, minding your own business, when BAM!

Have you been sitting at home, minding your own business, when BAM!

All the power points stop working?

Your toaster – not working.

Your fridge – not working.

Your kettle – not working.

Lights are still on, but NONE of the power points are working at all!

We get these phone calls all the time from our tenants, and there’s usually a simple trick to fixing it, without even needing to send an electrician to your house.

Here’s what we ask our tenants to do.

First, we get them to go out to the power box and check if one of the safety switches has flicked off.

If it has, then we ask them to unplug all their appliances from the power points.

Then, we get them to go back to the power box and turn the safety switch back on.

And finally, we get all the appliances plugged back in, one by one, to figure out which appliance caused the fault.

Mostly, it’s just the toaster or the kettle that has become faulty and is throwing the power.

And it’s time for a new kettle or toaster!

And 9 times out of 10, this fixes the problem!

Without even sending an electrician out to the property!

Easy peasy!

Have you heard about the magic photo formula?

Have you heard about the magic photo formula?

There’s a magic photo formula for advertising a rental property!

Yes, we’re serious!  There’s an actual formula!

It’s actually a “bedroom to photo” ratio.

What that means is, when it’s time to find a new tenant for your investment property, you need great photos to attract a great tenant.

So, we apply the “bedroom to photo” ratio.

This means, for every number of bedrooms your property has, we include, at least, _______ (NUMBER OF PHOTOS) in our advertising campaign.

Got a 2 bedroom unit? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

Got a 3 bedroom townhouse? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

Got a 5 bedroom mansion? That’s (at least) ________ (NUMBER OF) photos.

We have a little short cut for our property investor clients.

A little cheat, if you will. 😉

You know what it’s like, when you’re coming up to tax time, and you’re trying to organise your paperwork.

And you’re going through all your monthly statements from your property manager…

And you’re trying to find all the invoices for all the repairs you paid for this year…

And it’s frustrating, and disorganised and stressful.

We have a special hack, just for our property investor clients.

And it makes life

So.

Much.

Easier.

If you’re one of our property investor clients, we give you login details to our own rental management software.

And you can GIVE those login details to your accountant.

When was the last time you had an annual rent review on your investment property?

When was the last time you had an annual rent review on your investment property?

If you haven’t had once recently, it’s time to check your rental returns.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1 – First, we run a full report on your exact property address, to check the current market rent for your property.

Step 2 – Then, we analyse your annual expenses on your investment property.

Step 3 – Next, we check your annual rent lost on vacancy over the last 12 months, and compare that to local averages.

Step 4 – Finally, we make recommendations to you around the best ways to minimise your expenses (or at least spacing them out over time) and improving the overall annual returns for your own investment property.

Simple really!
