Do you own an investment property in the Hawkesbury and not sure how many Routine Inspections you are allowed? Watch Rachael’s video to find out now…
Rachael looks forward to assisting you with your real estate needs one day soon 🙂
Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, depending on when you’re watching this video. I’m Rachael Goldsworthy on the drive home to Hawkesbury and today I wanted to talk to you about routine inspections. Now, routine inspections are done on a quarterly basis for my company. And we like to do that to ensure that the property is maintained, not only for the tenant, but equally for the landlord, so it’s fair for all parties.
You are entitled to do four inspections per year. Some agents will do longer inspections, like every six months or once a year. But we just find that every quarter, it just keeps everybody on the same page and it gives you a good result in the end for all parties.
Anyway, if you’ve got any questions in regards to routine inspections, leasing your property, renting a property, looking at buying a property, I’m always happy to chat. I’m Rachael Goldsworthy and I look forward to catching up with you on the next video.

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening depending on when you’re watching this video. I’m Rachael Goldsworthy and I’m checking in with you on the drive home to Hawkesbury. A question I get asked quite a lot from purchasers and landlords as to which is the best suburb to buy an investment property in? What I’ve done for everybody is put together a list of suburb profiles. There’s about 20 or 30 online for you at my website Rachaelgoldsworthy.com.au under suburb profiles. That will just help you navigate through the questions that you may have in regards to a particular suburb that you’re researching. Once you work out which suburbs you’ve identified that you quite like, whether it’s with schools or whether it’s with shopping centres or whether you just like the way in which it’s got the heritage style houses. What ever it might be that attracts you to those particular suburbs, short list that suburb and put that on the list with the others.
I’d probably do a list of three suburbs that you’re interested in. Then have a look online as to what houses are available and also speak to your agent in regards to what houses are available because they’re more than happy to help you with that process and talk you through as to what questions that you have in regards to buying a house or leasing a house or anything in regards to suburbs. If you’ve got questions in regards to the suburb profiles, or further questions once you’ve read the suburb profiles on my website, I’m more than happy to help you. Always happy to talk about property. I’m Rachael Goldsworthy and I look forward to catching up with you on the next video.
Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, depending on what time you’re watching this video. I’m Rachael Goldsworthy, and I’m on the drive home to the Hawkesbury, just checking in with everybody. It’s the 30th of June, 2016, end of financial year. Can’t believe the year’s going so quickly, can you?
Anyway, just wanted to make sure that you’ve got all your claimables, receipts, expenses, those sorts of things off to your accountant so that they can prepare your tax return for you, and equally, when sending out our landlord end of financial year statements to them so that they can send that to their accountants to prepare their tax return. If you have any questions in regards to your investment property, being a landlord, thinking about getting an investment property, I’m always happy to talk about property with you. I’m Rachael Goldsworthy, look forward to catching up with you on the next video.
Hi, my name’s Rachael Goldsworthy and I’m just heading off to an open inspection at Bligh Park. That one is going to be for a 15 minute period and as an owner getting your house prepared for an open inspection is really important. If you don’t get the presentation right it’s not going to be attractive for that buyer to be able to pay that … you know, fall in love with it in the first place and then pay that higher price for you that you’re after.
A couple of things that I would probably do, three things in particular, all of the basics like mowing the lawns, cleaning the house up, getting everything in preparation for that open. That’s all fine, that’s all normal. The other two things that I would probably do and say to you is one, I would have appropriate music playing in the background. That might be as simple as Vivaldi Four Seasons or it might be a nice, soft music. Something that doesn’t really have a beat or that anybody can really recognise, but it’s just a really nice … It puts people in a nice mood when they go through your home.
The other thing that I would probably say to you, it’s always good to have some sort of infuser or, I guess, an essence of some sort. Whether that’s a candle burner that has a particular fragrance or an infuser that has a particular fragrance, making sure that you’re trying to remain neutral. You don’t want to have something that’s going to be overpowering and all they’re thinking of is “Oh my goodness. Can you smell that? I can’t get over that.” Somebody may have allergies to those sorts of things so I would stay away from the really strong ones, but just have something such as a vanilla or something really neutral that’ll just take any of the last night’s dinners aromas away from the scenario.
Alternatively I would look at some sort of burner, whether it’s an essence burner, they’re always handy to have and something as simple as eucalyptus in the water. That gives a really nice, fresh flavour to the air or alternatively tea tree oil is another one. Everybody can get that from Coles or Woolworth’s. You don’t need to use the expensive brands. The other thing that I would say with that fragrance is possibly stay away from the incense burners. The incense burners, as much as they’re really nice and some people like them, not everybody will. Given that it provides a lot of smoke with those incense sometimes as a nonsmoker somebody will walk in and be … It’s a little bit offensive sometimes for those people when they’re walking through. Also, again, if they’ve got allergies or their child suffers asthma they won’t want to be going in the property. So just a couple of things there.
Make sure that the curb appeal is right, the presentation is right. Make sure that you’ve got lovely music playing and thirdly, just make sure that you’ve got the right aromas in the house and you’re sure to have a great open home. I wish you well with that. If you’ve got any other questions don’t hesitate to call me. I’ll catch up with you on the next video.
