Constant reviews of properties that are coming up for lease or are currently vacant is essential to securing the right tenant for your property. Key areas that should be monitored are:

  • Advertising: the use of high quality photos and correct display of features & attributes of a home
  • Marketing & Timing: all properties should be listed on multiple websites & local newspapers to ensure it reaches a wide range of people all over Australia
  • Current Pricing: regular price reviews of similar properties in the area that are available and also have been leased recently to keep in line with the current market trends
