Setting Your Property Up For Success When Renting

Here are a few things to chat about before the first open inspection of your property
  • Uploading your property on a Monday for an open inspection on a Wednesday
  • Frequency of communication & who I’m calling to give updates
  • Reviewing applications & turnaround time to present the “top 3” applicants to you
  • Refer all enquiries through to me; tenants avoid property managers, but there’s a reason you hired me… to get the best tenant!
  • Something may go wrong; it’s normal and can be fixed
  • Keys and access to the property
  • Ensure your property is clean, tidy and maintenance issues are resolved!
Confirmation of lease terms
  • Availibility/move in date for the tenant
  • Lease duration (12 months or 6 months)
  • Is the property furnished?
  • Tenants responsibility for water (usage & supply)
  • Pets? Negotiable or non-negotiable
Open inspections
  • Displaying of open inspection times
  • Avoiding private viewings; focus on competitive public open inspections
  • Midweek open inspections vs Saturday open inspections
  • Pre-registration for tenants to view the property
  • Post-open inspection text message with application information
Rental figure
  • Confirmation of rental figure
  • Review of comparable rental properties to ensure rental figure is accurate
  • Single figure vs rental range
What are the signs that we have not hit the mark? And what do we do about it?
  • Lack of enquiry, low attendance numbers and poor quality applicants
  • Proactivately discuss a plan to generate better quality applicants
  • Make a proactive and considered change to the price to ensure the campaign remains on-track
  • Remember; the most engaged interest for your property is likely to occur in the first 2 open inspections!
