Rental Update

Posted on 19 Sep 2013, 5:25 p.m. in Abercromby's, News, Property Management

Its spring in the city, with the warmer weather bringing out the crowds!

We have seen increased numbers at our inspections which is translating into properties leasing quickly. There is currently still a shortage of larger family homes with some clients having budgets of up to $3000per week to spend. We expect this demand to continue as we head towards the end of the year.

Whilst the market continues to be strong, landlords need to consider the following point’s in today rental market:

• Be willing to negotiate rentals with tenants and meet the market. If you have been lucky enough to achieve a higher rental previously, understand the rental may not always go up with the next tenant
• Have a buffer account for renovations. Remember rental properties deteriorate over time and it’s important to freshen up your investment between tenancies.
• Hold on to good tenants by keeping rental increase to a minimum.
