If you’re not nervous about finding a good quality rental property, you probably don’t live in Wellington. Wellington’s rental market has been booming for long enough that it’s almost getting boring to say it out loud.
Almost a year on from the Kaikoura earthquake, we were given a timely reminder that Wellington sits on one of New Zealand’s major fault lines.
A 4.8 shake in the Cook Strait was enough to remind us all that we should always be prepared. ☠️
You can’t beat Wellington on a good day. And when it comes to investing in property, it seems like Wellington is definitely having a good day.
Despite no recent changes in the national average rent, Wellington’s market has remained strong and shows no signs of slowing down. Investing in property has, and always will be, about the numbers.
Technology continues to change. Whether we like it or not, technology is playing more and more of a role in the world that we live in and is affecting industries all around the globe. It seems that now property management’s turn is next.
The war is on. 💣
Property managers everywhere are readying the troops.
Private landlords are forming alliances with each other.
It’s time to do battle and find out once and for all whether you should use a property manager or whether you should manage the property privately.
Recently, we tried to get in touch with some of our landlords...
Unfortunately, no matter how hard we tried we couldn’t. Their phones rang and rang and their emails weren’t checked.
It turns out our landlords were overseas, dodging taxes and sitting on a beach somewhere counting their money.
Apparently, there was quite a lot of money to count so it took a long time for them to get back to us.
On September 23rd, New Zealand’s future is up for grabs as the country rushes to the polls to decide who will be in charge. Every election is important, but with so many key issues being raised over the course of this year’s campaigns, this election seems to be much more enticing.
The future is coming. Property management is finally being dragged out of the dark ages. 🔮
At a recent conference held in Taupo for the New Zealand Realtor’s network of property managers, our team was able to discuss with some of the leading property management agencies across the country, the changing face of our industry.
It is no secret that property management is a changing industry. From changes in legislation to the increasing understanding by tenants of what to expect from a landlord, property investors and property management companies have got their work cut out.
It has long been understood that property managers offer varying levels of service, but mostly they just collect the rent.
Now, is the time to challenge the perception! 🤜
Landlords prepare. Silly season fast approaches! 😱
Recent history suggests that Wellington’s rental market is under some serious pressure...
With a shortage of rental properties and good levels of tenant interest, prices are being kept at a premium and finding rental property can be difficult for many tenants.
