Why Choose Oz For Your Property Management Needs
Do you manage your own properties? If you have or do, you know that it can quickly turn into a full time job, especially if you want to stay on top of maintenance.
You want to keep your customers happy but you cringe when you see your tenant’s number show up on your phone because you know it’s usually not to have a friendly chat…
Think clogged drain, door wont shut, or there is no hot water. Most investors and property owners have told us…
“Those phone calls have me on edge at all times and it eats into my mental bandwidth each day, worried that today I might have to put my plans on hold to fix something”.
Even if you’re a handy person, these are activities that cut into your daily routine.This is time you could be spending looking for new income properties, furthering your existing career or business, or getting in some much needed down time with the family.
If you end up getting a bad tenant, you feel like it’s game over. We don’t blame you, the laws surrounding the Tenancies Act is lengthy and full of legal jargon that can feel like reading a different language.
We are investors just like you. It has taken us years to perfect the process of art and science of renting residential properties in Regina , SK and southern Saskatchewan.
This is a system we believe is better than any other property manager’s system in the whole city. Let’s explore why…
Do You Like Your Current Property Manager?
You don’t have too…You likely put a lot of time and money into purchasing your property thinking it was going to solve some of your problems, not cause more.
From the hundreds of conversations we have had with our clients and fellow investors, we have heard nearly all the stories.
We’re here to tell you you don’t have to like your manager. In fact, your allowed to hate them.
It’s your ass-ets on the line. Don’t settle for mediocre results.
Tell me if any of these feel familiar…
…When you receive your monthly cash flow statement you can’t help but go “what the…” scratch your head and wonder, where did my money actually go and what are all these charges actually for?
…You feel as though an effort to understand your property, it’s surroundings and what it has to offer is never taken into account, and it’s “just another property” in their database
…They think that lowering rent and giving free utilities away is “effective” marketing
…You are charged fees even when the property is vacant, which is usually months since they don’t know how to market and advertise properly
…Potential tenants have told you the showing agents are late, rude, or were not helpful with understanding the property
…You feel like they never truly treat your property as one of their own assets and it’s always last to receive any attention
…Regular inspections are not performed, even when they said they would in the agreement
…Repairs are done very poorly or not at all
…Your Rent is never deposited on time and you feel like your always one month behind, chasing the manager for a consistent rent payment
…You constantly feel on edge from mentaly trying to juggle the things that need to get done or need to be followed up with to keep your property going
…After you’ve gotten frustrated and go to call them, it’s difficult to track anyone down that knows anything about your property
…When you do finally talk to someone, there is never any accountability or ownership of issues, but they sure do like to make excuses and pass the buck
…You’re stressed out and feel like the only option might be to grind it out and suffer or admit defeat and sell at a possible loss
Does this sound familiar?
We don’t share this to smear/bash/hate on our competitors. We share this because we wan’t to make it clear that…
…It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way
We see things differently.
At Oz Property Management we are property owners first, managers second.
Our story began back in 1998 when we personally became investors ourselves.We have spent many years perfecting our craft of renting out our single family homes and apartment buildings.
We’ve gone to seminars and training events and read books on the topic. But nothing quite teaches you like having real hard money in the game.
And what we learned was…
The simpler we made things, the more effective they became. We scrapped our book keeping software in favour of custom templates, we tested and removed fancy property management software that was costly and time consuming, we made our pricing a flat percent of rents collected, key word being rents collected.
Too many managers these days are overloaded with complex procedures and softwares which is why they seem to fail serving you and doing your properties any good.
Property management at it’s core is about people. And once we stripped our business back to just that, things got much easier and funner to manage for us and our clients.
