You asked, we answered: A look back at some of our most popular advice
Now that we’re halfway through the year, it seems like the perfect time to sit back and take stock of what’s been a busy year (or three) in the rental and real estate industries.Here’s a look back at some of our most popular tips and nuggets of wisdom from the months and years gone by…Think of this as your all-in-one cheat sheet to wise property investment.
How can I quickly increase the value of my rental, and get good tenants?
As we’ve said many times before, renting a house out isn’t what it was 20 or 30 years ago. There wasn’t a lot of government regulation, and renters were typically short-term tenants often slugging it out through university or dossing in a share flat before buying a home of their own.
The typical renter has changed, with many wanting safe and secure long-term housing they can create a home in. And quite rightly too. So, we’re often asked, “How can I ensure my rental is up to scratch and attractive to quality renters?”
How can I best set myself up financially with investment property?
The good news is that the current Labour led government have promised that they will not be introducing Capital Gains Tax in the foreseeable future.
Is the Government trying to control what I do with my rental property?
Not at all! There has been a lot of negative comment in the media on the government’s plans for tenancy law. We’ve always maintained that the Government is listening to both sides of the fence, and it’s worth remembering a lot of their initiatives reflect the changing face of renting in society – not everyone fancies living like a Dunedin student.
