在澳大利亚 The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m
Have you increased your rents in the past 6-12 months?
If not, your rents are below market.
Of the 9400 properties advertised for rent in the Sydney region on a weekend this month only 72 were affordable for people on the age or disability pension or the single-parent payment.more here
And not one property was within financial reach of single unemployed people on the Newstart allowance, even if they were prepared to share, and to move to Gosford, Ulladulla or the Blue Mountains.Click to expand...
We do bump our rent upas often as we can .
However, we have really good tennants in our IPs and so when their lease is up we offer a small rise for a twelve month contract, or a slightly higher rise for a six month contract, or an even higher rise for a rolling contract. Generally they have been locking in 12 month contracts more securing the place which they feel happy about and we do because it secures the "good" tennants in longer.
Right or wrong that's what we have done in the past.

Hi BV,Me too. We should increase rents as often as required to keep up with the fast moving rental market. Landlords who don't increase their rents yearly will find it harder to catch up because the tenant may contest a large increase

All our tenants are all employed and on 12 month leases. The PM has written instructions from us to increase the rent by $5 a week at renewal time.
We have good tenants so $5 is enough. I put up the rent $15 on one property once as the female tenant had too many requests - the increase had the desired effect and tenant moved.
