“Now is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning”Winston Churchill 1942. Churchill is of course famous for many an inspirational quote made all the more magnificent by virtue of the circumstances in which he found himself. I suspect somewhat more uplifting and motivating than the dross found on social media these days. Imagine addressing a population facing the existential threat that emerged in Europe in the late thirties and imploring the population to be the best they can be and to speak their own truth. Gimme a break! But, as always,Read More →

With alarming frequency, I hear from managers asking me how they can stop or reduce the ‘excessively large’ number of applications they are receiving. This is a truly staggering and perplexing sentiment. To be clear: There is no such thing as ‘too many applications’. The job of a real estate agent / letting manager (or any business operator for that matter) is to correctly price and present stock such that the supply of stock available is equalized against its demand. This is absolutely basic economics and should be the first thing every licenced agent learns in day 1 of their licence training. It certainly wasRead More →

I read with some amusement that our friends in government have realised that all the disclosure and “lets treat people like idiots” regulations that we now “enjoy” may in fact be very confusing to the average borrower. Lenders are now being told to explain things in simple English and in a manner that is clear, concise and easily understood. Let’s call it a conversational style of communication like the bulletins we have been publishing for years. Given that it’s not unusual for a borrower to receive, inclusive of the Product Disclosure Statements, upwards of 500 pages of information from a bank this seems like aRead More →

If you came into the business of management and letting rights (MLR) because you saw an attractive balance sheet but have solely focused on the maintenance of gardens and not on the importance of marketing, then you have not set down the road for success. Our business is referred to as ‘Management and Letting Rights’ for a reason. That is the resident manager has a dual role as both a caretaking service provider and an onsite letting agent. This dual role  provides an opportunity to market services to a number of different target markets.   To define, a target market ‘is a group of existingRead More →
