Today we have a large number of rental properties under management in the area and are always looking to add more as we just love the demographic. Our property manager Chris, lived in the area for years and understands the demographic extremely well. This is what he had to say when asked about the Rental Market in Marrickville.
“I lived in Marrickville as a tenant for a number of years, and very quickly fell in love with it. I love the lifestyle but more so the amazing transport system that Marrickville has to offer. These days, as a property manager, I have come to realise that, when combining lifestyle and access to the train line as well as numerous route buses, few suburbs fair better than Marrickville.
That means that rarely properties stay vacant at Marrickville for longer than 2 or 3 weeks. At a recent first open for inspection on this delightful unit close to the Marrickville station, I had 25 parties come through and 3 applications submitted 3 hours later, on a grey Wednesday night. The amazing tenants moved in that Sunday and gave us a 5 star Google rating in the process! As a property manager, this was an amazing result and showed me the strength of the market.”
If you have any questions about the rental market, or would like a second opinion on you rental property, please let us know and our local property manager will be able to meet with you and discuss. Our advice to landlords looking for a property manager to manage their property, is to look for someone that has the capacity and headspace to care for their property, their tenant, and them as a customer.
