Where to start? What to ask? We've put together some top questions to ask your property manager.
+ Do you offer a service guarantee?
+ Are you passionate about property management or is property management a side line to your sales business?
+ Can you offer me comprehensive landlord insurance at a great price and arrange payments of the premiums on my behalf?
+ To give added protection against problem tenants when leasing my property, do you subscribe to a tenancy database that provides information about defaulting tenants?
+ Are you a member of Real Estate Institute of NSW (REINSW)?
+ Do you have subscriptions to major property websites to ensure your property is advertised to millions of viewers a month?
+ Are you available by phone and email 24/7?
+ Do your property managers keep up to date with changes in legislation and actively participate in ongoing professional training?
+ Can you show me references from current clients?
+ Is your signage and branding brightly coloured and easily recognisable to give my property credibility in today's competitive market?
+ Do you have a comprehensive website full of information for landlords?
+ Do you have a team of licensed and insured tradespeople who you work closely with and with whom you have carefully developed great working relationships?
