Frequently asked questions

How do we find the right tenant?

All landlords want the perfect tenant, someone who pays their rent on time and takes care of your property as if it was their own.

It is important to consider the type of tenant that you would like to attract and market the property's features accordingly. Don't forget to take into account factors such as the time of year the property is advertised for rent, the properties presentation and advertised price.

Remember when it comes to applications, quality is always better than quantity. It is imperative that the suitable tenant is thoroughly screened. The screening process should include a full rental history, tenancy database checks, references, rent payment history and condition of their previous rental properties during inspections.

A good property manager will be able to guide you to the best tenant.

How long will it take to rent my property?

A vacant rental property is money out of a landlord's pocket. To minimise vacancy periods a few factors must be considered, including pricing comparative to similar properties, how it is marketed and presented to prospective tenants and assessing the markets demand for properties equivalent to yours.

Your property manager should be able to advise of the current 'days on market' figures for similar properties to yours and discuss the best strategy to pricing and marketing to secure the best tenant in a suitable timeframe.

Whatever you do, don't rush into a tenancy agreement as it may result in a landlord's worst nightmare. A good property manager should be able attract high quality tenants and ensure minimum vacancy periods.

How much will my property rent for?

It's our number one question from property investors and rightly so.

A quick search on sites like or will give you an idea of what similar properties are being advertised for. However, use this only as a guide as there can be substantial differences between the original advertised price and what the property was eventually leased for.

Your property manager should have access to expert property data software to produce a Comparative Rental Analysis (CRA) to show you exactly what similar properties rented for and how long they took to rent.

It is key to look at the actual rental price and the time the property was vacant to determine the best rental price for your property.

Remember all property management fees are tax deductable.
