    Hello Chatters!

    I have decided to look for a new property manager.

    Ideally, I would like to have one PM company that looks after my Brissie properties.

    Location wise - my properties are as far south as Eagleby and far north as Deception Bay.

    Any suggestions and feedback on your experiences would be greatly appreciated :)


    Cheers,
    Taku

    Although having one PM does have its benefits such as potentially lower management fees and other PM costs and also having to deal with only office, the reasons not to use the same PM over such a large area i think outweigh the benefits.

    When having your IPs managed, you want a PM who is local and knows the area well. They will be able to keep on top of any rent increases as the market moves in that direction and will have access to contacts in the area such as maintenance professionals and other local resources. In addition, generally PMs have a tenant pool from which they can have access to in the event your property becomes vacant potentially speeding up the process of getting your IP leased.

    Just some things to consider. :)

    I see no real benefit in doing that, hard enough getting ones good at looking after things a few mins from the office. I too think that is spread too far and anyone saying yes to this is likely cutting corners, there has been people on here offering that sort of thing, would steer clear.

    If anyone wants to PM me I can forward your details to a property manager that can help you with multiple locations. She will then contact you to discuss.
