WHAT ARE OUR FEES AND CHARGES?
Our management fee incorporates payments of all aspects of the management process in one easy to understand monthly figure. Although if we were to manage more than one property for you, our fee would be negotiable. Our management fee may not be the cheapest in Newcastle, but we believe that we provide the best service and as a result offer you the best value for money.
HOW DO WE MARKET YOUR PROPERTY?
In our experience, the most effective ways of advertising are on the internet, sign boards at the property, advertising twice weekly in the Newcastle Herald, window display and coloured printed brochures directed to relocation agents, Defence Housing Authority, Newcastle University, the John Hunter Hospital & Mater Hospital and other major employers in the area.
Prospective tenants are very aware of newspaper advertising as the traditional source fo rental property listing. However the internet is fast becoming increasingly effective as a means of rental enquiries. We have found that 40% of all enquiries come from the internet. As a result, all our listings can be found on domain.com.au, realestate.com.au and our own site. This enables us to provide a detailed description and photos of your property.
We also maintain a database of people who have an interest in leasing property and contact them as appropriate properties become available. Further, our high profile position in Hunter Street, Newcastle means we enjoy superb foot traffic. Our office is open 6 days per week and regularly secures tenants through enquiries attracted to our office on the weekends.
WHEN DO WE PROCESS YOUR RENTAL INCOME?
Funds are banked directly into the owner’s account through electronic banking on the 14th & 27th day of each month. Funds deposited are available the next working day. A statement showing rental income, any disbursements processed during that month, management fees and tax will also be forwarded to the owner either via email or Australia Post.
