With professional property management services that you can rely on and that wont send you bill after bill.
Securing the investment is the first stage, but making it perform is another thing all together. Knowing what your property is worth in the rental market is very important otherwise you could be cutting yourself short!
While it might sound like a few dollars a week isn't a lot, it definitely adds up over time as some serious lost revenue. The same is true in reverse; there's no point waiting months to get an extra couple of dollars for your weekly rental if you're going to lose that upfront in months of a vacant property. The trick is to know the market and move quickly to get a tenant that is going to treat your property with respect.
In addition, it is vital that you have an agent that is going to treat your investment seriously and act quickly with tenants that breach the terms of their agreement. Understanding the process of rectifying these breaches is a highly important quality that you should look for in an agent, so don't be afraid to ask a perspective agent questions with respect to this to ensure you have chosen well.
