Where to Start?

Whether you’ve just purchased your first investment property, or your moving house and renting your old home out or whether you’re just not getting the service you need, finding a property manager in Melbourne can be challenging!

 

There are many factors to consider when selecting a property management agency that will service your properties and there are also many places to look for information.

 

Ask Around

Living Melbourne had humble beginnings where we grew from a small boutique agency to manage a medium sized rent roll and 90% of our rental management came from referrals! We believe that whilst advertising online and in print can increase exposure, nothing can talk louder than the testimonials and opinions of our previous clients. You can see our 5 star Google Reviews here

 

If you have friends or family that have an investment property that they are renting out, asking them who they have used in the past and if they would recommend anyone. We know that no matter how good Living Melbourne may be, our clients will always shop around, and that is why we continue to deliver the highest quality of service. We are not distracted by a sales business or hugh rental numbers – that means you and your property get specialised and often customised levels of service. 

 

Research Online

Go to an Inspection

It’s quite simple – register for an inspection at one of their open homes and you will be able to judge for yourself without any bias on your behalf or your potential property manager. Afterwards, if you’re happy you can say hello to the property manager or simply walk away and they (or we) won’t know any better.
