How many years has your Central Coast property manager been with the agency?
Always seek a stable and long term experienced Property Manager. Who is committed with at least 5 years minimum experience with the Agency. This way you have some reassurances that they love working there and may do so for many years to come. You should ideally select a Property Manager with passion who views their work in Property Management as a chosen career path, not just a job to make ends meet.
Does the Central Coast property manager give you a written proposal?
First impressions count, when meeting with you, did they provide you their company information in a professional presentation folder highlighting all of their professional services to you, if so, it is likely they will look after your property professionally also. Look for someone who has put in the time and effort to present a professional image to you and gives you a written proposal.
What geographic area does the property management service cover?
Look for a Central Coast property manager with expert local knowledge, who has lived in the area for sometime and therefore knows it very well, and can cover a larger geographic area.
A property manager who is working as a mobile property manager is ideal, as they are not stuck in the office, in one suburb location only. Technology in 2018 is predominantly web/cloud based and everything revolves around internet banking, and online marketing and promotion and there is less need for an actual shop front with advertising in the window display. A mobile property manager spends more time at properties, as opposed to at a desk.
Is your property manager a specialist?
Many professional property investors are now seeking a specialist Property Investment and Asset Manager, for reasons such as being a first time investor, who wants more than a standard traditional real estate agency service, a specialist agency will provide value added services, and education to the investor, and also as their portfolio grows, the investor may have less time to oversee their portfolio, so hiring the specialist is reassuring, to know they will be able to look after their entire property portfolio and inturn trust the specialist agency to protect their asset.
