Our office is currently sitting at 5.5% vacancy rate.
Our success in minimising our landlords vacancy is from our proactive approach. We regularly update our landlords on the current property market conditions (we check all available rentals daily on realestate.com.au and domain.com.au, and what has been recently leased in the area through RPData), we install For Lease signs, we advise our landlords of pending Open House Inspections and By Appointment Inspections, and then provide feedback from potential tenants afterwards. We encourage our landlords to invest in Professional Photography and upgrading their Marketing on the web. Price, Presentation and Marketing are the key factors in leasing a property at the highest possible price, to the best possible tenant, in the quickest possible time.
