Property Management Investment Guide


Thinking about having your property professionally managed?

Our clients come to us for a variety of reasons; some have just bought their first investment property, others are on transfer and want the security of holding on to their family home.  A few are about to embark on an overseas experience; but sadly, many seek our services after a period of self-management and in need of relief.

Our aim is to maximise your return and minimise your stress!

At LJ Hooker Oamaru Rentals we are dedicated to:

•    Protecting and maximizing the value of your property

•    Attracting the best possible tenants

•    Achieving optimum market rents

•    Maximizing occupancy rate for your property

In the following pages you will find a brief overview of the services we offer and the benefits to you.  To discuss these matters further, please give us a call 03 434 2595.

Property management doesn’t cost, it pays! 


Why use a property manager?

Ask yourself these questions:

1.    Do you know for certain what the current market rents are?

2.    Are you conversant with the Residential Tenancies Act 1986?

3.    When repairs are needed, are you getting speedy, cost competitive attention from tradespeople?

4.    Are you going to remember to check every rent payment?

5.    When tenants move out, is your property re-tenanted as quickly as it could be? 

If you answered “No” to any of these, we need to talk!
