Enlist local expertise
A knowledgeable property manager can help find a good tenant, so it is important to do your homework and research agencies with a solid track record in managing rentals.
Skilled property managers, like our team at Mont Property, have a comprehensive understanding of the local market, and are familiar with your neighbourhood and rents that can be achieved in particular suburbs.
Online reviews and property portals such as realestate.com.au can also provide valuable insights from both landlords and tenants.
Clear and direct communication is vital for effective property management – with the landlord and the tenant, as well as internally amongst the Mont property management team.
“Property management is a dynamic and constantly changing industry, so we make it a priority to ensure everyone is on the same page and has an understanding of any issues that arise,” Mont Business Development Manager Nicholas Cole said.

Presentation is key when making the decision to put your investment up for rent and that means ensuring the overall appearance of your property is at its best.
This transcends from the physical appearance of the property as well as how it presents when it is marketed, including having quality professional photography to showcase the home in the best possible light.
Mont uses a range of marketing tools, including prominent signboards in strategic locations, an interactive website that is easy to navigate and mobile-friendly, a significant local database, as well as a strong presence on social media and advertising on online real estate portals.
Connections and networks
