Investing in your investment

Investing in your investment
We strongly believe that “you get what you pay for” and this is especially true for Property Management. There are plenty of offers promising discounted fees, but what are you really getting for your money? All too often, discounted fees mean discounted service. Not only that, but a better quality service will actually save you money in the long run.
Property Management is an essential service, not just another expense. Your property is one of your most important assets and it deserves to be managed in the best way possible.
 
That means working with the best in the business, not the cheapest. It’s widely acknowledged in business circles that relying on discounts to attract customers means you can’t match your competitors in terms of quality, service or innovation. It is not worth risking your investment with a second rate service, just to save a few dollars a week. If you needed an operation, would you seek out the best doctor, or would you settle for a doctor that has to offer discounts to attract patients?
 

The benefit of premium service in a constantly changing market.

Due to low interest rates and the large number of units released in the past 18 months, more and more people are buying investment properties. The increase in supply means tenants now have a lot more options when choosing a rental property.
You can’t avoid market fluctuations like this, but you can work with a proactive Property Manager who adapts to changes quickly and effectively.
 
We allow tenants to arrange inspections at times that suit them and apply for properties online. By making things easy for tenants, we are achieving a vacancy rate of much lower than market average. Our staff make a career out of Property Management. They are in for the long haul. Our low turnover rate means that we retain our knowledge and experience, it also means you can look forward to a long relationship a Property Manager who knows your needs and the needs of your property.
 
Our Property Managers individually look after smaller portfolios than the industry average, which gives them more time to dedicate to your property. That is how we achieve less than 1% rental arrears.

It’s easy to see how innovation and better service an save you time, money and a lot of worry.
 

Don’t get caught out by hidden costs and extra fees.

Discounted offers often include hidden fees and costs which quickly add up, making them much more expensive than you anticipated. On the other hand, our fees are transparent and competitive, so you always know exactly what you are paying for. The difference in cost can be as little as the price of a cup of coffee* a week. In fact, the total difference in cost for our service over 12 months will rarely be higher than 1% and in the long term we will be much more valuable

Switching Property Managers is easy.

Getting better Property Management service isn’t hard. It’s as easy as picking up the phone and calling your local Peter Blackshaw Real Estate office.
