If you manage a portfolio of rental properties – for example, as a property manager or management rights owner – there’s always a risk that when one of your owners decides to sell, the property will sell to an owner-occupier rather than an investor.
If that happens, you lose. The property comes out of the rental pool, the income stream is lost, and the value of your business is reduced.
When your owners decide to list their properties for sale, wouldn’t it be great if you could increase the chance of the property selling to an investor and staying on your books?
Well, you can. Here’s how:
Encourage your owners to list their properties with RE/MAX Strategic.
Here are four great reasons to work with RE/MAX Strategic:
#1 – Greater chance of selling to an investor
RE/MAX Strategic is the only real estate agency in Australia with a unique, powerful marketing alliance with Australian Property Investor magazine. We promote our listings to the same portals that all agents use (Realestate.com.au, Domain etc.) PLUS the vast investor databases that we have access to as part of the API alliance. This increases the chance of the property selling to an investor and staying on your rental management books.
Most real estate agents market their properties heavily to local buyers. While that’s fine for most homes, investment properties benefit from the national (Australia-wide) and international exposure we can provide through the API marketing channels. Again, this increases the chance of the property selling to an investor rather than an owner-occupier.
Most real estate agencies offer property management as well as sales. Real estate agencies in your area effectively compete with you for the management rights to your properties. If your owners decide to list with one of these agencies, you may lose the management rights to the property to the agent’s in-house property management division. At RE/MAX Strategic, we do not provide property management services. By encouraging your owners to list with us, you’re increasing the chance that the new buyers will stay with you for property management.
#4 – If we don’t sell to an investor, we’ll cover your management fee for a year!
If you refer us a listing, we know that as a property manager you’d prefer the property sell to an investor so it stays on your rental books. While our access to unique investor databases definitely increases the chance of a sale to investors (compared with listing with other real estate agents), obviously we can’t guarantee who will buy the property. Our duty as agents is to get the best results for the seller, regardless whether the buyer is an investor or owner-occupier. Therefore, if you give us a listing that is currently under your management and it sells to owner-occupiers, we’ll pay you the next 12 month’s management fees upfront, at the time of settlement! Now that’s an unbeatable deal. * Terms and conditions apply. This offer maybe withdrawn at any time without notice.
