What's On

If you have an investment property that you plan on renting out to short-term tenants, you may be considering hiring a Property Manager. After all, owning an investment property and being up to the immense tasks of managing it and looking after your guests are very different things.

Here, we take a look at some of the benefits that come along with hiring a Property Manager and how this can benefit you as a holiday rental owner.

What does a Property Manager bring to the table?

Professional Industry Knowledge and Experience

Perhaps most importantly, Property Managers understand the ins and outs of the market conditions and are across current pricing rates and trends. They can set reasonable rates that will maximise occupancy and income. They are well connected in the business and have trusted contacts who are just a phone call away in all areas, including trades, housekeeping, transportation, entertainment, etc.

Marketing and Advertising

You’ll want your property listed on multiple channels and advertised for maximum reach. An experienced Property Manager will know which platforms to choose, and how to get you properly set up on them.

A good Property Manager will also be active on social media, where your property will feature in posts and ads, as well as on their website and blog. Look for a Property Manager with a professional marketing team who posts regularly on all channels.

A stand out Property Manager will arrange for professional photos of your property, and staging if necessary. Good quality photos are a worthwhile investment that will sell the property to prospective tenants in a way nothing else can.

They Are the Go-To Person

A Property Manager is the face of the business. They are the person the tenants will deal with from before check-in to after check-out. The Property Manager will do everything from making sure they have the keys on arrival, to arranging groceries, or dealing with any unforeseen issues that may arise, such as a broken appliance or power outage (sometimes in the middle of the night!), and finally, returning the bond after the property has been inspected following check-out.

Property owners can rest easy knowing every single detail of their tenants’ stay has been looked after.

Legal Matters

Your Property Manager will be aware of key legislative matters and updates, and conduct and provide inspection reports when required. They will make sure your holiday rental is up to all the current standards, and should the need arise, they are able to represent you at the tribunal.

The ‘It’ Factor

It takes a special type of person to be a Property Manager. If you know one, you’ll know that they have seen it all and done it all, and probably with a smile on their face. It’s hard work, often at odd hours and requires a calm, professional demeanour to not only deal with the business handlings but to make people feel welcome and at home during their stay. 

They are the person who will make sure there is Champagne on ice for a guest’s arrival, but also make sure there are no wild parties happening in your property. The job walks a fine line between expert customer service and strict rule enforcer, and most property owners simply aren’t up for it.
