Auckland rents on the rise: Landlords don’t miss the boat. Increased demand for quality rental accommodation in Auckland has been one of the main contributing factors for increasing rents throughout most suburbs in 2015.

Auckland rents on the rise: Landlords don’t miss the boat

The increase in demand is driven by many factors including strong positive net migration and also the current climate in the Auckland property market. Cost barriers have meant many tenants are continuing to rent longer rather than purchase. These costs barriers include the continued increase in the cost to purchase property and the new LVR lending rules which require purchasers to have a minimum deposit.

Although recent rent increases may not have been as dramatic as the increases in the actual values of properties, the increases add up over time and it is most important that landlords put in place a systematic process to complete regular rent reviews. Ensuring your properties are receiving the best market rent possible will help you maximise the performance of your property or portfolio. Auckland Property Market Update November 2015.

While the volume of property sales was up 4% from October last year, they fell 19% compared to September.

Auckland Property Market Update November 2015

Although Auckland may look to have stopped in its tracks, it had been running unusually hard through most of the year and a recalibration of the number of sales was not unexpected. The volume of sales has resumed to a level that is in line with the number of transactions recorded in the month of October since 2012. A drop in the number of sales since the beginning of October correlates with the introduction of new bank rules – the requirement to have an IRD number and bank account to purchase property, along with the introduction of 30% deposits for property in the Auckland region.

Although these measures have dampened some consumer sentiment, record low interest rates continue to prop up buyer demand. Recent housing confidence surveys indicate over half the respondents still believe house prices will continue to increase over the next year. Tenant Resources.

Property Management Testimonials

Being a remote landlord I have to rely heavily on the property manager looking after my property in Highland Park and this has not always been the case. When I first moved from Auckland to Wellington I engaged another property manager who ended mishandling my property leaving me with a repair bill and months of lost rent. I then engaged Allen Realty who from the outset worked to ensure I was very comfortable with every decision they made and ensured my property was fully rented with very few weeks ever being empty.

The service has been so good that I continue to use your services now into the 15th year and would happily recommend you to any other prospective client. —Tony Hickmore, July 2015, Taupo Based Landlord “Just want to thank Simon for all the hard work on getting the house rented out, lots of $$ spent but I think it’s worth it. —Amal Amleh, Landlord.

Allen Realty. Property Management Services. REAL Landlord Insurance Policy.

As property managers our service is designed to take proactive steps to protect property owners. Having a property manager does not eliminate risk but reduces risk by ensuring that yourself and your asset is protected as much as possible. If your tenant damages your property or fails to pay the rent your property management company will take urgent steps to terminate a tenancy and hold the tenant responsible for any debts. Unfortunately in some cases the property owner is dis-compensated financially whether it be due to a tenant not paying rent or causing damages. Currently there are a couple of different organisations offering cover to help protect the property owner against their tenants. This is referred to as Landlord Insurance and is generally separate to your normal household insurance.
