You will receive the following benefits when you employ a professional property manager:

  • Rent Reviews:
    The managing agent monitors the rent and keeps the owner informed of market change.

    A managing agent often has a ready supply of tenants. The agent has the means to check references and credit ratings. This enables more effective screening of tenants.

  • Location:
    The owner may be separated geographically from the property, eg transferred overseas or interstate.
