The three steps to leasing your property

31-May-2016

There are three steps that are undertaken to ensure your property is leased in the shortest possible time-frame to the best possible tenant and for the best rental return.

These steps are:

  • Price
  • Presentation
  • Promotion

Price

When your existing tenant gives notice to vacate, your property manager will conduct a market rent assessment of the property and make a recommendation in terms of the rent that the property should be marketed at with the aim of securing a tenant before the property becomes vacant. This is done with a view to avoiding or minimising any vacancy period and ensuring the rent is in line with the current market.

Presentation

Your property manager will make suggestions regarding any maintenance work or refurbishments that may be required/recommended on the property to ensure that it is not only presented in the best light to prospective tenants but also that any preventative maintenance work is undertaken.

Promotion

It’s so true that you only get one chance to make a great first impression. Professional photography ensures your property stands out from other properties online. Our photographer ensures your property is photographed from the right angles and in the best light in order to attract the attention of better quality prospective tenants. The cost of professional photography is a modest investment that assists in reducing the number of days your property is on the market. Furthermore, photographs can be re-used for future lettings.
