How Rental Property Managers in Kapiti and Horowhenua Can Help Increase Your Income
If you own an investment property in Kapiti Coast, Horowhenua or surrounding areas, then you need to know this: choosing the services of a good property management company is the most reliable way to maximise the return on your investment with minimum fuss and more peace of mind.
Rental property managers skilled at performing a number of duties that can greatly increase your rental yield, capital growth, tenant quality and demand – all of which are essential for maximising your rent. These include:
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 comprehend your property’s unique proposition/ selling point so they can focus their marketing strategies to promote, and ultimately secure the best rental arrangement for your property. They know how to handle all aspects of rental listings, including copy writing, internal and external photography, open house inspections and street signage, as well as the best place to put your ad.
In addition to showing your property to prospective tenants, a property manager can conduct tenant screening processes to shortlist and identify the best tenants. Renting to the right tenants will not only increase your chances of on-time payment, but also reduces the possibility of property damage. And because property managers know how to perform background and financial checks on potential tenants, they can pick the best tenants who represent a minimal risk to your investment property and revenue streams.
Managing Your Tenants Effectively
Once you've secured tenants, it’s 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 keep tenants happy and encourage them to make a long commitment.
These include, but not limited to, timely and accurate communication of information to build and maintain their relationships with existing tenants, dealing with any outstanding tenant enquiries promptly, including favourable terms when negotiating a new lease, and undertaking the necessary improvements. 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, and pay attention to arrears control and prevention, which is critical to maximising rental returns.
Our property managers establish and maintain property and rental records, ensure rent arrives on time, every time, and provide you with regular financial statements and an annual revenue and expenditure summary for easy tax returns submission. Undertaking these duties by yourself can be demanding and time consuming, and you may not have the skills required to perform them effectively.
Rent Review, Evaluation, and Adjustment
Setting the right rent level is essential for ensuring high rental returns and lower vacancy rates. If you increase the rent, often, to the maximum possible or 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 rent to market rates at a later date. Our experienced team knows how the local the market rent rates work and they can assess your property and set the right rent level to attract tenants.
To get maximum rental income from your rental property, you need to ensure that your property is well-maintained and attractive. An attractive property will yield the highest-quality tenants, thus allow you to obtain the highest possible rental income. At Harveys Rentals we have a network of reliable contractors who can conduct both routine maintenance and property repairs to improve your property’s desirability and its ability to attract top quality tenant and achieve the highest possible rental returns.
