How A Good Property Manager Can Help You and Your Investment

At Aug 15, 2017
As a property investor, you know that managing your property requires not only extensive experience but also a hefty amount of your personal attention to complex management issues. The right property manager will go above and beyond in increasing the value of your property investment by working alongside you as an adviser, ensure stability and increase returns and capital growth with their expertise and industry knowledge. Proactive Maintenance The best way to solve a problem is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. Paying close attention to things that may require regular maintenance rather than taking care of something after it has broke or stopped working can help minimize future large scale repair costs. This is a proactive approach that separates property managers from really good property managers, particularly if regular maintenance means an item does not have to be replaced sooner than it needs to be. As hard as it may be to secure good tenants, good landlords can be just as hard to find. Keeping your tenants impressed with your on-the-ball and proactive maintenance leaves tenants feeling looked after and secure with their choice of landlord, which in turn will improve the likelihood of the tenant sticking around through rent increases. Risk Management Real estate property management requires a high level of detail and expertise, owning a rental property comes hand in hand with many ongoing risks that need to be payed attention too. Working with a property manager ensures you are up to date with the latest laws regarding tenanted properties, building codes, town planning procedures, statutory requirements and any other legislation relating to investment property. The right property management team can protect your investment by properly maintaining and managing your property through an organized system that keeps them up to date with all rules and regulations. Property Market Insights Working with a dedicated property manager will always ensure you are getting your market value by having a good understanding of relevant information that may influence rental rates in your local suburb.

Advantages Of Working In An Office Space

At May 15, 2017
With the increasing popularity of working from home in the last decade, more and more employees are ditching the office and heading to a local coffee shop or their home work station with nothing but the internet and a smartphone to get their work done. Without a doubt, there are many advantages to working from the comfort of your home, however there is certainly still important advantages that remain when considering the benefits of working in an office setting. Motivation With others around you chipping away at their day and completing their tasks, it's hard not to motivate yourself to do better everyday in an office. Most people are lucky enough to have co workers who encourage them to do better and praise them in person for a job well done which keeps employees highly motivated and feeling good about themselves, while successfully working from home requires an extreme amount of self discipline and focus. Social Factor The social factor plays a huge part in why going to work in an office setting has an upper hand. The office is a place where co workers become life long friends, team building allows you to get to know and respect one another on a more personal level and can make the possible transition to a new city or town an easy one. You are able to make new connections and network on a daily basis if you choose too in an office setting. For some, working from home can feel more like isolation, and in severe cases no interaction all day can even lead to a feeling of loneliness and even a mild depression. Collaboration We all know that collaboration leads to innovation which ultimately leads to groundbreaking ideas that shape a company's success. Communication is easier in the office, having the opportunity to engage in a quick in person meeting when ideas come to mind makes working in an office setting favorable to those who value this important aspect of their career.   All in all, depending on what your role is, working from home may not always be the best fit. If you are glued to your desk for 99% of the day, and prefer to have your privacy with little interference, working remotely is a fantastic option. If your job requires collaboration and you thrive off interaction in order to be successful, then the office environment is for you. For listings of available office space, click here:
