Rental search is not something that many would associate with a buyer's agent service, however it is one that I offer here at Melissa Maimann Buyer's Agent.
How does it work?
Essentially, the service assists tenants to find a great home to live in, without all the hassle of finding their property themselves. The essentials of the service are:
Sitting down to work on a property brief: this gives me a good understanding of that my client is looking for in their ideal home. We explore this so really flesh out what's important versus what is "nice to have".
Next, I set about finding a property. This involves a lot more than merely browsing the internet. It involves contacting the property managers in the areas of interest to explore other opportunities that have not yet reached the market, and also exploring options via buyer's agents who may have recently purchased investment properties for their clients.
The next step is to inspect the properties for my clients, saving them time and hassle. No more turning up to inspections to find that the property has been leased; turning up to an open home to see loads of other keen people there and feeling hopeless about the situation; and no more endless inspections of properties that do not look anything like the photos on the internet. I take all the worry and frustration from my clients by doing the inspections myself.
Once I've found a suitable property, I let my client know, and if they're in town, they come to inspect it as a private viewing.
Once the client has seen - and loves - the property, the next step is assistance to write a great application, and again, I assist with this too, to ensure that the application has a competitive edge to it.
We also review the lease terms to ensure that they are standard, and I negotiate the rent down where possible, saving clients hundreds - if not thousands - of dollars.
So it really is a great service, full of benefits for a time-poor family, busy professionals, people from out of the area, or simply people who value their time and prefer not to spend every Saturday (and week days) inspecting properties and dealing with real estate agents. Give me a call today - I'd love to help! 0400 418 448.
