Some investors opt to self manage their investment property and benefit by appointing a professional property management company to handle the marketing and letting process. This is often referred to as a “Let Only” service. Once the tenants are approved by you, we execute the lease documentation and you are free to manage the property.
Ray White MetroWest also offers a menu of other ancillary services to private landlords which make being a private landlord easier.
OPTIONAL EXTRAS FOR SELF MANAGED PROPERTY OWNERS
PROPERTY MARKETING & ADVERTISING
Ray White MetroWest rental properties are marketed in a similar manner to properties we market to sell. Professional scripting, high quality or professional photos, and a sense of urgency to encourage more applications and give you, the investor owner, more choices.
High quality photography is recommended as we find it is extremely effective in attracting enquiry and the maximum return on investment. A professional script will also be written highlighting and “selling” the features and benefits your property offers.
Personalized inspections are arranged to meet the demand – not restricted to once a week but scheduled in groups to show greater interest and create urgency around applicants needing to apply for your property as soon as possible.
The property will be advertised on numerous websites which have been selected to maximise exposure.
