What sets GCRP aside from every real estate agency?
At Gold Coast Rental Properties the two things that set aside from other agents are experience and strategy. GCRP owner Chris Murphy has been managing holiday rental properties and luxury homes for over 10 years. At GCRP we use proven strategies to ensure your investment realises maximize returns. Our highly-trained property management team will help tailor a long-term mix between holiday, residential and executive short-term rentals depending on seasons and property types to ensure you get maximum occupancy.
What sort of time frame can I expect it will take to find a tenant?
It is always difficult to guarantee an exact length of find to find a tenant. Some properties rent the first day that they hit the market, while others may take a little longer. Generally speaking, we have found that if the rental property is priced accurately, and well presented, we can usually source quality tenants within about 14 days. We aim to save you money by securing a suitable occupant for your property in the shortest amount of time, without compromising on quality.
Is there any way you can stop my property from getting damaged?
Even though we screen every tenant’s application is screened very carefully, accidents do happen and there can be no guarantee that your property will not be damaged. We conduct regular and thorough inspections to deal with any problems that may arise. Routine inspections generally take place three months after a tenant moves in, and quarterly thereafter. Each inspection is reported back to you with any maintenance needed to be attended to, and how the tenant is caring for your property. We also highly recommend landlord insurance for peace of mind.
When will I receive my rental funds?
Rental funds are deposited to our landlords at the end of each month via direct deposit straight into your nominated bank account.
How do I get my monthly owner statements?
Our owners have the convenience of an online reporting system where their monthly rental statements and future bookings are loaded to. Owners can access this information at any time from the comfort of their own home.
Do I need to have landlord's insurance?
It is not compulsory to have insurance we highly recommend that every investment property owner should have a specific landlord insurance policy in place for their property. Landlord Insurance protects you in the event of a tenant not paying rent, leaving the property early and for any damages caused. Landlord's insurance can also includes public liability and limited cover for contents (e.g. floor coverings, curtains). The cost of landlord insurance is less than 1 week’s rent, we believe it is money well spent.
