  1. How to Find the Right Property Manager: 5 Practical Tips 21st Sep 2018

    Entrusting your property to someone else means doing thorough research and making sure that your property manager is both experienced, reliable and proactive. A Property Manager or Property Management Agent is there to facilitate maintenance of the property, to screen and select appropriate tenants, address tenant concerns and to assist in creating a stable rental income for the client. Here are our top 5 tips. 1. Local Knowledge Check that the Property Manager has local knowledge, this will help when you need a guide to setting a rental price, hiring reliable local tradespeople, providing information to prospective tenants and so on. The Property Manager may not live in that suburb and their office may not be located there, however, if they have experience with that local market, pricing and amenities it has to offer, then this is a positive sign. 2. Customer Service Having a polite, efficient person or team to deal with from both the owner and tenants perspective is very important. When you meet in person or speak to the property manager over the phone you can get a good sense of their customer service skills and whether they will be a good fit. A good property manager will keep in regular contact with the property owner to keep them updated on any issues with the property, tenant vacancies, recommendations on rental price changes and simply to keep the owner assured that they are actively managing the property. 3. Property Management Experience How many years experience does the property manager have? How long have they been at the company? Typically the more experience and longer they have been at the company the better. As they are likely to have tried and tested processes that work. For example, a tenant screening process in order to find high-quality tenants. This could save a landlord money and help them maximise their rental return. 4. Maintenance and Repairs Find out how the property manager handles repairs and maintenance of the property and if it suits your needs. What is their process for: Maintaining the property - do they hold regular inspections and note any concerns? Repair requests lodged by the tenant - will they inspect the property themselves before sending a tradesperson? Will they contact you before hiring a tradesperson? 5. Rent and Outgoings Does the property manager have a clear, accurate method of recording rental payments and any outgoings on your account? How does the property manager deal with the situation of late payment of rent? Are there clear processes in place to handle this situation? The right property manager will take the stress away from owning an investment property and you can relax in the knowledge that your property is in good hands.

  2. Why Tesla? An interview with Ajay 14th Sep 2018

    Location Property Group has an impressive fleet of cars, I interviewed Ajay to find out more about them and why they decided to buy Tesla. Why Did You Decide to Buy Tesla? Mainly due to the fact that the source of power could be decided by us. We could choose, solar power, wind, coal-powered electricity. Solar was very appealing due to the environmental benefits. The Sydney to Melbourne Tesla Rally, held a few years ago, was the first proper run in the car and was a testament to its ability to run the distance on solar. It was our first step towards moving away from high carbon polluting fuel to a solar powered system. What Reaction Does the Tesla Get? They have attracted a lot of attention, particularly from the younger generation (teenagers and early 20s). They are the generation that seems most excited by the technology. Whereas the older generations seem less likely to change. Has It Helped the Location Property Group Brand? Yes, it has helped the brand. The Tesla is new and different. Lots of people look at the car as its a Tesla and see the brand. Branded wraps on standard cars, generally don't attract as much attention, and so the brand is less noticeable and less likely to stick in people's minds. Whether the brand on the cars translates to direct sales is unknown. But it's more likely to have an impact over a few years. When someone who’s seen the car needs to sell their house in a few years time, they may think about us subconsciously! What Models Are the Cars? We have a Tesla Model S and Model X. How Do You Charge Them and How Often? We currently live in an apartment so it's difficult to install a charger, so we tend to use Tesla's free superchargers. They have local ones in St Leonards and Broadway. It’s like getting free petrol - we don't pay anything to power the cars. We usually charge about once a week and it takes around 40-45 minutes. We have installed an 8KW Tesla Powerwall battery at a property in St Ives which we use for small top-ups. Have You Tried the Autopilot Feature? Yes, I have used this a lot and have done 3-4 trips to Melbourne using this. On the 850K drive, around 500-550K are on auto-pilot. Although I still keep my hands on the wheel and am very aware of the road and what is happening around me, it's a much more relaxing drive. What Car Is Next? The Tesla Roadster. It has incredible performance statistics and is due in 2020/2021!
