Technology Changes The Face Of Property Investing

Technology Changes The Face Of Property Investing


Leading Dunedin Property Management say "Technology Changes The Face Of Property Investing"

Property investing has always been a staple component of the balanced investment strategy. From the lords of the manor in the kingdom of old to the modern investor, the history and success of investing has been well documented through time since the doomsday records.

Even when the government policy writers see property investing as an easy target, the control the individual investor has of their investment and the complete understanding in bricks and mortar continue to rank property investing as the preferred choice.

Many Property Investors have a go themselves and if you ever hear the "I tried it once but never again..." then you know they tried to do everything themselves rather than leave the more challenging aspects to the experts. The successful Property Investors are those that casually monitor their investment but overall largely invest and forget.

For that they do need reliable Dunedin property managers and that in itself can be a challenge, however leaders such as Kyle and Tania Elmer from Mana Property Management Ltd know all about investing and how to succeed in the industry. After all they own about 25 of their own rental properties and manage approximately 250 residential “houses to rent” in their business.

To ensure they are leaders in their field, Kyle and Tania have embraced the latest in techniques and technology from both NZ and overseas. The most successful of these recently would be the use of video. Kyle and Tania attended a video “bootcamp” in the US and Kyle was the first in NZ to attain his Real Estate videography qualification.

Video is now used in marketing the properties, inspecting the properties, providing renovation advice to owners and maintenance information to tradesmen. Within the office, video is also used for training.

So video has been around for years - what makes this special?
Video has not been used in “Dunedin property management” in the past due to how often something changes which renders the video useless and another video is required. Today, the techniques allow for videoing numerous properties and re-shooting the videos when something changes. The videos Mana Property Management Dunedin provide are one take videos without editing so the viewer has added confidence in what they are seeing and no concerns that the less desirable aspects of the property have been "cut" i.e. what they see is what they get.

Core benefits therefore are:-
1. Tenants have benefited to the extent many more are applying for properties sight unseen which enables Mana Property Management to attract the most desirable tenants who are coming into the area or Tenants that were unavailable to view due to work loads or other commitments.
2. The Owners are benefiting by being able to see their properties in real detail which aids their decision making and confidence in the performance of their properties.
Experienced Investors and Property Managers know that a good Dunedin property management company is measured by two core outcomes:-
1. ensure less vacancy time and
2. ensure maximum rents.

They achieve this by knowing exactly what houses to rent in Dunedin the Tenants are looking for and ensuring their properties provide that. As with all their services, Mana are available 24/7 with the office open 7 days a week.

Crucial to this outcome being achieved for the Investor’s benefit and the Tenants satisfaction, the property Manager must therefore know:-
1. exactly when to market the property,
2. how to market the property
3. what to evolve and change each year to ensure maximum success for your investments.

When Kyle and Tania started the management company in Dunedin in 2007, they were answering a need for a modern Property Management company that Investors' could rely on to not only provide Tenants and the odd report but to continually offer after sales service encompassing:-

Additionally they provide Investors with strategies to:-
1. Identify ways to improve their property investment assets,
2. Guide them on implementing those strategies and
3. Be a part of the Investors' overall / ongoing investment strategy planning.

So if you don't want to say "I tried property investing but never again...." then entrust your investment with Mana Property Management Dunedin who are accountable to “sweat the small stuff” on your behalf to ensure success in your property investing – with a minimum of risk!
