The Reluctant Landlord

You marketed your home for sale and it didn’t get a buyer at your price but you want to move on!


Property sales in Auckland are appearing to slow down and we are seeing frustrated vendors turning to the rental market when their property does not sell for the expected price. Many of these property owners are frustrated and disappointed, having gone through the sales process and the effort required of them both physically and emotionally. Often they have moved on in their minds from owning the property and are having to rethink what to do. They may already have purchased another property and visualise being there.


Can you fully embrace a new way of thinking entirely from home owner to investor treating the property like a business?


Is this you? Why not rent out your property either long term or until the market supports a good sale?


Perhaps you have decided to go ahead. The time to dot the i’s and cross the t’s is right at the start of your phase as a landlord. Our professional experience and expertise in residential rental property is critical to making sure you get things right.
