Four Questions you Should Ask About your Investment Property

Are you getting the best from your property? The following questions are a guide to understand whether you’re maximising your investment.

1. Is it time to review your rental return?

Always make sure you’re receiving the best rental return possible. Research other property rental prices in the area and talk to your property manager about a reasonable increase in rent when the lease on your property is due for renewal. You can always speak to a Mike Pero Real Estate agent as well.

2. Can you add value to your property?

There are plenty of cost-effective ways to add value to your rental property, which may enable you to increase the rental price. Try a fresh coat of paint, new carpets or a kitchen or bathroom reno.

3. Are you maximising the equity on your property?

It’s no secret that New Zealand property prices have been on the rise for some time, particularly in Auckland and Christchurch. Now could be a good time to assess how much equity you have and whether you’re in a position to expand your portfolio.
