Letting service for DIY Kiwi Landlords to launch
An online solution for self-managing property investors launches today, promising to take the hassle out of tenanting a property for a fraction of the price investors would pay if they were to go it alone.
TenantSource.co.nz offers a free and professional service for Landlords, who simply enter their property address online to get the ball rolling. Once key information has been gathered, TenantSource.co.nz covers the advertising, viewings, application process and tenancy agreement for the owner without charging a cent for their time.
Featuring a tagline “fast, efficient and cheaper than doing it yourself” Landlords will pay for only for online advertising of the property, which they’ll get for less than half the standard price of advertising thanks to the agency’s industry discounted rates.
“We pass this saving onto our clients, rather than use it to bump up our own profits” says Scott Dunn, co-director with his sister Jesse.
“If a property investor does this themselves they’re likely to pay almost $100 for advertising and spend the next week or two arranging viewing times with current tenants, driving all over the place to conduct viewings and collecting applications and then writing a tenancy agreement which must adhere to the Residential Tenancies Act. If they use TenantSource.co.nz they’ll pay from just $39 for advertising and we’ll take care of the whole tenanting process.”
A second package including featured advertising, image retouching and credit and reference checks is also provided.
TenantSource.co.nz is launching first in Auckland with plans underway to launch in New Zealand’s other main investment centres within the next few months.
Jesse Dunn has high expectations regarding growth, “Here in New Zealand we have a lot of self-managing property investors, up to 60% of NZ property investors manage their own properties (according to consumer.org.nz). Our own research has identified that 20-25% of rental properties advertised each month are done so by self-managing property investors, and this who we will be representing.”
The Directors of TenantSource.co.nz come with a wealth of experience in Auckland’s property investment sector, working central operations for one of Auckland’s most high profile sales and property management agencies.
