Tauranga Property Investors Urgently Required

Mount Maunganui from Pilot Bay

 

 

The official start of Summer is only a couple of weeks away and once again the Bay is ready for a summer full of events and visitors. Even though we don’t have the annual cruise ships this year, there a many Kiwi’s exploring the country and we expect lots of these local tourists to explore our amazing Region.

As we have spoken about in previous blogs, rental properties are still in short supply in the Bay area (this includes rental properties in Tauranga, Mount Maunganui, and Papamoa areas). We have many fantastic tenants waiting for their ideal home, this includes houses, units, and apartments both furnished and unfurnished.

With low-interest rates now is a great time to think about property investment and a great time to rent out that bach or second home that doesn’t get used as often as you would like. The returns on investment are excellent, and with our flat-rate Property Management fee, we can guarantee what your rental return will be. Furthermore, we have a strict selection process for screening tenants and we have regular comprehensive property inspections using the latest property management software.

If you choose to use us as your Property Managers, we have a secure Landlord Access Portal that you can access anytime from anywhere. This portal will provide you with tenancy information, from income and expenditure reports to tenancy details, at any time.

Our expertise includes over 20 years of real estate knowledge for the Bay area. We are a privately owned and operated business and we pride ourselves on our fantastic and friendly service.

So, if you have a property you would like to rent, or if you are considering becoming a property investor in the Bay area, give us a call today. We can walk you through the steps of what you need to do, including any legal requirements, discuss rental returns, and set you up with the perfect tenants as soon as you’re ready!

Connect Realty Property Managers Help Couple Find A Home To Rent

We recently shared an article from the Bay of Plenty times about the rental shortage problem in Tauranga and the surrounding areas. Within the print edition of this article was a story about our wonderful new client Madison Lesa.

Madison and her partner had been searching for a house to rent for 5 months, with no luck.  Madison saw and liked a property we had advertised for rent, so she filled out one of our application forms and phoned our office.  Property Manager Nicky Ryan met Madison at the property and was very impressed with how she presented herself, and knew she would make a great tenant for our property.

This is Madison’s story as told by the Bay of Plenty Times:

Madison Lesa

After five months of hunting Madison Lesa and her boyfriend have finally found a house to rent.

The 21-year-old, who is studying primary teaching full-time, struggled to find a rental property for her, her boyfriend and another couple.

“My boyfriend and I are both 21 so we get stereotyped as a partier or a house trasher,” she said.

Competition for properties was fierce and it was not uncommon for listing on TradeMe to have been viewed hundreds or even thousands of times, she said.

Miss Lesa was thrilled to have been given an opportunity and was excited to be moving into the central city house on Friday.

Her advice to others was to “sell yourself”.

“It’s like going into a job interview. Instead of going through the internet all the time it’s good to go into a real estate agent and say ‘hi’.”
