New Zealanders love real estate and property investment is a proven path to financial security.
However, as a landlord, property investor, and asset owner, how do you best manage your property?
Do you look after it yourself and try to…
- Save money on management fees?
- Deal with your tenants’ calls, whether they are late at night or on weekends?
- Invest your spare time arranging maintenance and solving problems?
- Learn about legislation, laws, landlord rights and responsibilities?
- Work out what you can claim with your tax?
- Keep your asset maintained and up to date?
Or, do you consider engaging a property management expert?
The wise choice is to engage a qualified and professionally trained Property Manager to save you time and money by managing your asset through all stages of the marketing, letting and ongoing management process.
