Not sure what your Brisbane investment property might rent for?
We’d be happy to provide a rental estimate. We specialise in Brisbane’s inner suburbs, so make the call and we can organise the rest.
The Metrocity Pricing Formula
We always strive to get you the maximum rent possible, and setting the ‘proper price’ is key to getting your property rented as soon as possible. To do this, we consider three key factors.
What is the current demand for rental properties in your area? This can be seasonal and affected by a number of factors. The highest demand occurs in June/July and January/February when 30,000 new international students come to town. Typically these are high demand months which are the optimum times to have your tenancies end and get new properties rented.
Properties available now
We look at properties currently available for rent and consider their location and features for comparison to calculate a maximum rent for your property. Sometimes new developments create a glut of rentals in an area, and this too can affect your rent. Adjusting rents to a suitable price range in periods of oversupply puts more money in your pocket. Leaving rents at the wrong level because of increasing costs or “that’s what I got last time” can cost a lot.
Properties we have currently rented
We compare your property with what we have currently rented, taking into account property location and features. The demand we have with a similar property near yours gives us a gauge to see if we can push the level a bit higher than what’s been achieved before. Getting the best out of the “market” is important over the long run. Being 10% under the market for the long term is not in your best interests.
We give you choice
How much do you charge? This is often the first question that people ask when comparing real estate agencies as it’s an easy area to compare. We understand that fees are important but often low fees are an indication that some things might be missing from the service that you will receive.
We understand landlords are cautious about spending, and while we’re in the business of turning a profit, our approach to fees is reasonable and in alignment with your best interests.
Our landlords acknowledge their bottom line is improved because of the higher rents we’re able to achieve and our dedication to low vacancy rates. We’ve created a structure to give you choice and offer a fair balance between the specific services we provide and the fees we charge.
