With demand for rental property in Hobart at an all time high, you might think yourself lucky to find a home to rent at all, much less the one that perfectly suits your needs. But with a little forethought and care, you might just find the perfect place to call home. Baxton Property Management runs you through the tips and tricks that will help you to find a house you can home.
Many people believe they’re faced with a dilemma: rental properties in Hobart are only advertised close to the time when they fall vacant. Do you have to wait for the last minute to start looking? Not necessarily. A property management company will know which houses are likely to fall vacant in the next few months – even before they are advertised as being up for rent.
Start making enquiries well in advance of your planned move – after all – knowing you have somewhere to move to is a must. For those who decide to move on shorter notice, it might be worth considering a temporary form of accommodation to allow for a house hunt, even if that means storing belongings for a time.
Talk About Your Needs and Wants
How many bedrooms do you need your new home to have? Do you need it to be near schools? Would you like to be near the beach? Prepare a list of criteria, but identify which are needs and which are just “nice to haves.”
Baxton property management helps prospective tenants to find the ideal home by using your criteria and software that combs our database for matches. It’s a bit like online dating, but without the stories of awful first dates who weren’t very honest in their dating profiles!
Make Sure Property Managers Have all the Details They Need
You may know that you’re a great tenant, but a property management company needs to prove this to the property owner. As a result, you’ll be called on to supply references and financial and personal information before you can be approved as a tenant.
Some companies may expect to you provide the same information over and over again, but with Baxton, all you need to do is to fill in one online application form and provide supporting information. That’s it. You’re covered, no matter how many times you apply for different rental properties under our management.
Alert people you are using as referees. Tell them about your house hunt and ask them to respond quickly to any enquiries from Baxton Property Management. Prompt responses from them will help us to process your application faster.
Perfect Landlords for a Happy Stay
It’s not just the house you ultimately move into that’s going to make or break your stay. Your landlord’s professionalism counts too. And if you want to be treated professionally, you’ve come to the right place when you approach Baxton. Having our property management company on your side means you’ll have the best possible chance of finding the perfect rental property in Hobart. We take good care of our clients, whether they are property owners or tenants.
