Review of Rental Ranges

Our property experts will provide you with a detailed rental appraisal that includes the rental ranges for each unit type and floor level, as well as market comparisons for similar properties in the area. We'll also provide you with information on the median, lowest and highest rents for the different unit types depending on the number of bedrooms, as well as further details on your property, similar properties, and local amenities. This review will ensure that you set the weekly rent at the best possible level to maximise your returns sustainably. Our team of independent experts have their finger on the pulse in your local area and can inform you on how much rent can be charged in your neighbourhood, taking into account the particulars of your built to rent development, which in turn would help market your BTR to a well-segmented target audience.


Review of Typologies and Design Elements

Our team's expertise in the Auckland market and understanding of tenant demand will be invaluable in conducting a thorough review of typologies and design elements for your BTR property. Based on our analysis, we will provide recommendations on the range and quantity of typologies that should be offered in order to meet the needs of the local market, as well as suggest design elements that will enhance the property's appeal to prospective tenants. By reviewing the typologies and design elements, you can gain a better understanding of the different options available to you and make informed decisions about the design and layout of your BTR property. Our goal is to help you achieve premium rentals for your BTR property. Additionally, by incorporating desirable design features and using the space better to incorporate common areas and amenities, you can increase tenant satisfaction and retention rates, ensuring that your property remains attractive to tenants for a longer period of time.


Ancillary Income Opportunities

Our team will carefully review the common areas and amenities of your BTR property and recommend additional features that could help you achieve a premium level of housing and ancillary income opportunities. We'll make sure that the design of these areas is tailored to meet the specific needs and preferences of your target market, ensuring that your tenants have an exceptional living experience. By offering services such as laundry, Wi-Fi, electricity, and other convenient behind-the-door amenities, you can create additional income streams, attract and retain the right tenants, and more importantly, enhance the value proposition of your property – set it apart from your competition.


Level of Service

We will suggest the necessary level of service to achieve an overall rental premium. Our team will detail the services that the on-site host/concierge would undertake and those that would be contracted externally. The level of service will be designed to meet the market's needs and the specific requirements of your BTR development.


A Detailed Marketing & Leasing Plan

We'll create a comprehensive marketing and leasing plan that's designed to attract the right tenants for your property. Our team will collaborate with you to develop a tailored plan that takes an omnichannel approach, leveraging a range of marketing strategies to reach your target audience. We'll start your tenant search by talking to you about your ideal tenants and creating a leasing plan that's customised to meet your specific needs.
