Why do I need a property manager?

In today's environment of legislation and litigation, it is imperative that any property investor be aware of the implications of renting a property without a full working knowledge of all legislative and regulatory requirements that must be met. Many investors who attempt managing their own properties are simply unaware of how much is involved in order to manage their investment effectively and maximise return while also avoiding costly liability.  


There are approximately 20 commonly referenced Acts and Regulations which dictate the daily duties of a property manager and our business is to know these inside and out, so you don't have to! 


Your On Point property manager won't only be a legislative expert, they will also be armed with real industry experience which will allow them to:

  • Effectively market your property by adding special features to our listings that will give your property an advantage over the market 
  • Qualify potential tenants ensuring no stone is left unturned by accessing information databases normally only available to agents
  • Identify and remedy any issues that could potentially put you at risk of liability or financial loss
