Property Management Auckland

Quinovic Parnell property managers have returned from their christmas break as have a number of property owners, and business is very busy. Many of our new clients read our blog about self managing rental property, rent arrears, choosing the right property manager etc last year and are now coming to us to take the pressure and worry off them. Fortunately we are very well resourced at Quinovic Parnell and have the capacity for lots of  new business this year. In fact there is a growing demand for rental properties and definitely a shortage of well presented and well maintained houses, townhouses and apartments.  We have already taken on new clients and as well as those who read our blog we have a number of referrals from current clients. Property management in Auckland should definitely be the job of a professional property manager who can ensure rents are paid on time every time, rents are reviewed and kept up to market, properties are maintained, tenants meet their obligations and legal requirements are met.

On another but related note. Owners of Quinovic Property Management Parnell, Mary and David Vinsen recently sold their house so they could move to Parnell and rent a property there. Ironically they had to look beyond their own property portfolio to find a suitable rental property because everything they had on file was rented long term. Luckily they have found a home and in the process found some new properties to manage. They are now looking for tenants wanting high quality elegant homes in the $1000 to $2000 per week rent bracket as well as more properties in the $500 to $1000 per week bracket.

Avoiding Rental Property Traps

You’ve decided to rent out a property but are you aware of the pitfalls? While “letting agents” and some real estate agents can rent out your property for a fee paid by the tenant, that may be all they do. Mary and David Vinsen, new owners of Auckland-wide property management company Quinovic in Parnell, say many new landlords are unaware that owning rental properties requires proper and often time-consuming management. “Some property owners discover to their consternation that management involves more than just letting premises and hopefully collecting rent,” Mary Vinsen says. “For example, how do you ensure that your tenants are reliable rent-payers or that your property is maintained and left in the condition it was rented at the end of the tenancy?” she asks. “Who monitors condition, organises maintenance, collects and accounts for rent and expenses for end of year financials? Generally, not a letting agency! But we do.” Established over 20 years ago in Wellington, Quinovic is the largest privately-owned specialist residential property management group in the country with offices individually owned, and operated to a consistently high standard across the country. The company acquires tenants with proven credit histories and references, lets properties without charging them fees; and is on call to deal with any property-related issues. Property owners can access regularly updated confidential reports via the internet covering the property’s condition, maintenance and repairs, rental cash flow, inspection reports and photos and customised financial statements. “The peace of mind and freedom to live your live as you’d like costs only a small fee based on a percentage of income,” Mary Vinsen says. David Vinsen says that some clients are actually former tenants who found Quinovic administration “firm but fair” and eventually enlisted the company’s management expertise when they acquired their own investment properties.

9 Questions to ask when choosing a Property Manager

(the questions they don’t want you to ask!)

Question Six : How often do you inspect the property, and how do you report?

As well as having detailed photographs and chattel lists to record the condition of the property at the start of a tenancy, a property must be regularly inspected to ensure that it is in fact being looked after. This is very time-consuming and some property management companies find that reducing the number of property inspections they perform on a property and the length of time they spend at each inspection is the easiest way to allow them to reduce costs by managing more properties per staff member. While this may allow them to offer low fees, this is at a high risk. Property owners who receive detailed inspection reports with photographs following each inspection can be confident that their properties are being regularly inspected.

Quinovic Property Management Parnell  inspects each property one month after a new tenancy commences, and then every 3 months.

Following each inspection we report the findings to our clients, residential investment property owners,  and to the tenants. The latest inspection report and photographs for each property are posted on a secure-access area of our website, so owners can check at anytime.

This regime ensures tenants are well aware that we are watching the properties closely and that they should take their responsibility to take care of the property very seriously. Our inspections show all details of the condition of the property, greatly reducing the chances of property damage.

Contact  us to discuss how we can help with your residential property investment. We are experts as corporate property managers, (looking for a corporate tenant) in apartment management, property management for absentee owners,(renting out your home while overseas)  the full range of residential property management in Auckland.

9 Questions to ask when choosing a Property Manager

(the questions they don’t want you to ask!)

Question Four : Do you have staff to provide service 365 days per year, regardless of sickness and holidays?

 Residential property management often involves the need to react to unexpected situations without delay. In fact this is one of the main reasons property owners choose to have their property managed by a professional specialist residential property management company. If your property manager is sick or taking leave, who will look after your property?

Quinovic Specialist Residential Property Managers in Parnell  have adequate staffing, structures and procedures to allow for property management team members to be absent without leaving gaps in our service to property owners or tenants.

Tenants can, and often do, contact us 24 hours a day, 365 days per year to report emergency maintenance issues. By acting promptly, we are able to minimise the time taken to respond to problems and minimise any consequential damage and costs.
