For Landlords and Investors, finding the right location and property is usually the biggest part of the investment decision. One thing that is often overlooked is who will manage your investment long term?

Having the right Property Manager for your investment makes all the difference for your investment long term. Unless you’re happy to throw your money away, you should always make sure that the agency you choose is the right fit for you and your property.

Finding the right Property Manager:

When looking for prospective new Property Managers there are just as many things to consider as there is when you first purchase your investment:

  • How long has the agency been operating?
  • Do they have a beneficial unique selling point that isn’t a gimmick?
  • How long has your Property Manager worked in their field?
  • Is their Leasing Agent separate to the Property Manager?
  • What are their fees?
  • Does the Agent possess effective communication and organisation skills?
  • How do they effectively manage their arrears?
  • Do they have a history of VCAT attendances?

How will you know if the Agent is a fit?

Like with any meeting or conversation, you’re bound to walk away with the information that you need to make your decision, but as in most cases, you will know within 5 minutes of talking with the right Agent if they will be able to fulfil your requirements.
