Q1 Do I need to have Austrump Hosting complete my Pre-Settlement inspection?
As a purchaser, you can complete your own inspection or nominate an inspector，family member or friend to inspect on your behalf as your proxy. It is always recommended to use a professional inspection company or Property Manager to complete your Pre-settlement as we will be able to identify defects that you may miss. Missed defects could cost you time and money in the future if not identified during the inspection. A sample inspection report can be provided by our office upon request.
Q2 Do you recommend furnishing my investment Property?
Yes and No! This really depends on the location of the property, demand for this type of property, and the furniture that is included. Furnished Properties will only appeal to a specific market including Relocations, Students, Contract Relocations, and people seeking Short Term Accommodation. You will also have to take into consideration the type, color, style & quality of furniture you wish to include as this may not be to everyone’s taste and could hinder the leasing process.
If you are interested in leasing your property fully furnished, we recommend that you research the furniture and appliances that you intend to provide and advertise the property with the option of being fully furnished at an additional cost. This way you open your property up to the entire market.
Q3 Am I required to install window furnishings in my property?
Yes. Prior to a tenant commencing, you will need to make for blinds to be installed. Austrump Hosting can arrange competitive quotations for your consideration. We will organize access for the supplier to obtain measurements to enable installation to be completed as soon as the settlement has occurred so that the property can be occupied immediately.
