Leased in 9 days after sitting vacant for 3 months with another agency

Leased in 9 days after sitting vacant for 3 months with another agency

Toowong has always been a popular area for tenants looking for properties, so it’s surprising to see that a number of homes have been sitting vacant for long periods of time. A property we were recently engaged to manage had sat unnecessarily vacant for three months with another agency, before our team assumed the management.

The pet friendly townhouse, which offered three bedrooms, spacious living and a north facing courtyard, had all the attributes needed to entice applications early on. Yet despite this, the property on Miskin Street failed to secure a suitable tenant with the previous agent.

Once our team was engaged to manage the property, we arranged a complete relaunch of the home. The property was refreshed with a professional clean, enhanced with captivating photography and given a digital boost using our online premiere package.

Within the first week of our advertising campaign, 14 groups inspected Miskin Street. There was an overwhelming amount of enquiry with 1,477 online views, 25 emails and numerous phone calls from prospective tenants eager to view the townhouse.

Following such a considerable amount of interest, we received 4 applications and the property was leased in just 9 days. A fantastic result considering the amount of time it spent vacant.

As a boutique agency, we find one of the main reasons landlords become unhappy with their property manager is the lack of service they are receiving. Too often, bigger companies see their rent roll simply as numbers. Their property managers handle huge portfolios of 100 or more properties and lack the time to provide personal, one on one service.

Your investment property is not just an income, but an asset you worked hard to call your own. We understand that every property requires a unique, tailored approach with time spent presenting the home at its absolute best.

Our innovative approach achieves shorter vacancy periods and attracts mature, respectful tenants who will look after your investment. With personal service and a familiar face you can reach at any time, our property experts know what it takes to maximise your rental return.
