Why On-site Property Management....

At Solito Realty we only manage investment properties for Solito Owners and unlike large residential property managers, who have to cover large regions of Brisbane, all of our time is spent exclusively on your Solito investment.

More effective:

As on-site managers we have a different approach to managing your property. Some Real Estate agencies and  Property Management companies are interested only in filling vacancies and worrying about the potential damage and costs to landlords later. They don't have to live next door to a group of bad tenants!   We search for quality tenants who are going to (i) look after your valuable investment and (ii) not cause trouble or damage within Solito. Shared group houses are not suitable in Solito and with the demand for townhouses here, there is no need to accept these potentially troublesone tenants in your property.

More efficient:

Two major complaints from tenants is the lack of availability of their real estate agents and ignoring maintenance requests. This ultimately costs you, the landlord, as good tenants will leave if properties are neglected or, worse still, will not look after your property if they believe the agent is not caring about the condition of the property either.  Being on-site we are available to your tenants after hours incase of any emergency problems and can look at any maintenance issue on-the-spot to ensure further damage is not done and provide feedback to you and the tenant immediately. This can save hundreds of dollars in unnecessary expenses per year.  Remember  " A happy tenant is a good tenant".

One contact person:

How many times do you call an Agency and are unable to speak with the right person or need to repeat your query many times before anyone can answer your question? At Solito Realty we are a small on site team team, with Karen and Cameron exclusively managing all aspects of property management.

How can we do this?

Because we are not constantly out   travelling all over Brisbane to keep the large rent rolls the rental franchises  must maintain.  We handle all the administration  involved in looking after your properties and, at Solito, this is a small number in comparison to most property managers.

Other Differences:

Exposure:

One of the biggest benefits of using Solito Realty to manage your property is the constant exposure to walk-in tenant enquiry. Anyone driving through Solito, visiting friends or relatives can drop into our on-site Office to make enquiries. We can show prospective tenants any properties that may be available on-the-spot, after hours and week-ends which can minimize vacancy times significantly.

Renting out your Property before it is even finished?

Easy  - from these walk-in clients we maintain a rental waiting list where prospective tenants are able to register their requirements and then be advised of new properties as they become available. We have been very successful in renting out properties before completion from these lists as we can show prospective tenants a similar property in Solito, before your new investment home is ready, and capture this potential market on the spot.

Application and Approval Process:

Prospective tenants who submit an application to rent your property are thoroughly screened. Information including identification, previous rental history, employment history, income as well as personal and rental references are verified. Applicants must meet our stringent criteria before being accepted as a tenant which includes a National Tenancy Database check.

These checks are all included in our Management Fee. This process usually takes 24-48 hours and once complete and passed for approval, we will call you to discuss the preferred tenant application.

The Landlord always has the final approval and if rejected, for whatever reason, we will commence the process again and continue until a tenant is approved.

If you would like an appraisal of your property or are dissatisfied with the service from your current real estate agent, CALL SOLITO REALTY NOW to discuss your options.
