Hi people. My name’s Rachael Goldsworthy and I’m just going to talk to you about inspections. I’m heading off to McGraths Hill. I’ve got an open home there today. It’s for an inspection for tenants only. That’s for people that are looking to rent a home as opposed to buy a home. Usually you’ll get quite a number of people there given it’s quite a hot market in the rental market at the moment. There’s a lot of tenants out there and probably not as many homes for the tenants that are looking for homes.
With those inspections, they’re advertised on our website. Then the people turn up and have a look through the home, see what it’s that they’re after, and then after that then they take what they call a rental application for. That renal application form is then processed within our office and we nominate the three top most suitable tenants for the property. We put that forward to the owner. The owner then makes a decision based on that.
It’s really important that you go to these inspections. Look at as many homes as you possibly can do because if you don’t, just let that gentleman in. He’s trying to get in and there’s a lot of traffic here heading through Windsor. If you don’t get out to see as many homes as you possibly can, sometimes there’s better options available for you. You look at everything within the home. Remember whether there’s built in wardrobes. Remember whether there’s air conditioning. Fly screen are another important one because as a home is rented or once a home is rented or leased to a potential tenant, as is. Then if the landlord does not want to put those services in as additional services to you, you are stuck with in that timeframe of the lease.
What I recommend, just make sure you check all of the things that are really important to you, what you won’t compromise on as a tenant, and go from there. All right. If you need any further help in regards to renting your homes or looking at renting a home, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
