How rental property managers in Kapiti and Horowhenua can help increase your income
If you own an investment property in the Kapiti Coast, Horowhenua or surrounding areas then choosing the services of a good property management company is the most reliable way to maximise the return on your investment. A sound property management company will handle your property with minimum fuss and give you instant peace of mind.
Rental property managers are skilled at performing a number of duties that can greatly increase your rental yield, capital growth and tenant quality. All of these are essential for maximising your investment.
Marketing your property
Our experienced Kapiti Coast and Horowhenua rental property managers can market your property effectively to fill vacancies and increase cash flow. Our property management specialists can undertake property inspections to determine your property’s unique selling features to focus their marketing strategies accurately. The Kapiti Coast and Horowhenua rental property managers know how to handle all aspects of rental listings, including copy writing, internal and external photography, property viewings, street signage and where to advertise to gain maximum reach.
In addition to showing your property to prospective tenants, a property manager can conduct tenant screenings to shortlist and identify the best tenants for you. Renting to the right tenants will not only increase your chances of prompt payment, but also reduces the possibility of property damage. Thorough background and financial checks on all potential tenants are made. This means the best tenants who represent a minimal risk to your property can be selected.
Managing your tenants effectively
Once tenants have been secured, it is important to keep them happy to reduce tenant turnover. As part of their relationship with investors and tenants, property managers implement a number of strategies to encourage tenants to make a long-term commitment.
This includes accurate and clear communication; dealing with any outstanding tenant enquiries promptly; negotiating a new lease and undertaking repairs. These strategies not only keep your tenants happy, but also improve your chances of lease renewal.
Professional property managers undertake efficient collection of rental payments, in accordance with your tenancy agreement. Arrears control and prevention is also undertaken, which is critical to maximising rental returns.
The property managers at Harvey’s Rentals establish and maintain property and rental records. You are provided with regular financial statements including an annual revenue and expenditure summary – making tax time easier for you.
Rent review and adjustment
Setting the right amount of rent is essential for ensuring high rental returns and lower vacancy rates. If you increase the rent too often – or raise it to an exorbitantly high level – you may drive tenants out. This may leave you without rental income for a long period of time, which may outweigh the original increase in rent.
On the other hand, if you fail to increase rent to the right level, you’ll lose revenue and make it difficult to raise the rent to market rates at a later date. The experienced team at Harvey’s Rentals accurately assesses your property to determine the correct market rent to attract and retain tenants.
To gain maximum rental income from your rental property, you need to ensure that your property is well-maintained and attractive. A property that is cared for will yield the highest-quality tenants and obtain the best rental income. At Harvey’s Rentals there is a network of reliable contractors who conduct routine maintenance and also undertake property repairs to increase the value of your property, if required.
