Because property is more than bricks and mortar…

Gold Coast investment property experts

At Astute, we believe that property is more than bricks and mortar — it’s about people, community and homes. This philosophy feeds through every action we take when we’re managing your investment property or assisting you through the process of buying or selling your home. Here’s how we differ from the rest.

Exceptional and detailed accounting

We take rental arrears seriously. We generate daily reports to monitor payment status, ensuring your payments stay up to date. We also follow up on overdue payments on your behalf swiftly to ensure a quick resolution.

Maximum returns with minimum stress

As property investors ourselves, we know your priority is maximising your return. Our proactive approach ensures quality, reliable tenants for your investment property through a stringent screening and application process. Our daily processes safeguard against any headaches that come with rentals so you can avoid the stress associated with late payments and preventable maintenance and repairs.

Better cash flow and maximum rental returns

Collect rental income from your property investment weekly, instead of the widely practiced monthly disbursement. Receive annually a comparative market appraisal highlighting how we intend to maximise your return while guarding and growing your investment. This report includes data collated on comparative properties, current property condition, current rental market trends and previous leased properties.

A strategic marketing approach

For the highest possible rental return and the shortest possible vacancy period, we take up premium internet advertising and planned open homes for maximum exposure. You’ll be kept up to date with summary reports delivered within an hour of each open home, and receive weekly advertising reports and processed applications so you can make informed decisions relating to your investment property.

Single point of contact

Each property manager is responsible for a select number of tenancies to provide you with the highest quality of service. You’ll deal with the same person throughout your contract which means better management and personalised service from an expert property manager who knows you and your property inside and out.

Professional management to minimise vacancy

Vacancy periods are a landlord’s worst nightmare. We use premium internet advertising to gain maximum exposure, ensuring that vacancies are as short as possible for the least amount of stress. Receive regular and comprehensive updates on open home and marketing campaign results. Rest easy with our comprehensive screening process that yields the best tenant in the shortest possible time.

Transparency for peace of mind

You have the right to complete access to records, invoices and statements regarding your investment property. A simple request will give you access to all invoices and receipts, inspection reports (complete with preventative maintenance and repair recommendations and suggested improvements) as well as all trust accounting ledgers.
