Melbourne-based property managers Metro PM have tapped into technology designed to see properties tenanted faster and grow their rent roll.
Metro have partnered with Little Hinges to offer their investor clients and owners 3D virtual walkthroughs, demonstrating their commitment to producing best-in-class marketing assets while streamlining the workload of their team.
Metro Director Leah Calnan said it was vital to deliver an exceptional experience to their investor clients and owners.
“So many of the properties we add to our rent roll come from existing clients or referrals from people we’re already working with,” she said.
“Investors are extremely impressed with the results we’re able to deliver using virtual tours.
“For example, we worked with the Little Hinges team to scan a rental property which was viewed by a prospective tenant who applied and was approved, all in 48 hours and before we’d even had our first open home.
“This kind of experience wows clients, and demonstrates our commitment to giving them the best possible service.”
Property managers who are embracing virtual walkthroughs are able to demonstrate to landlords:
- Their stand-out property listings, designed to attract the best possible tenants. These typically feature high quality assets that can be re-used each time the property is available for rent, and incorporating interactive elements like virtual tours that can be used as proof of inspection, all the way through to entry and exit reports.
- Their demonstrated ability to manage properties more efficiently. They use technology to save time on the little things, like using 3D, millimetre-accurate virtual tours to answer tenant and landlord questions and source quotes from trades (instead of requiring an in-person site visit that also involves disrupting the tenant). They can also shortcut the time to get properties rented, often doing away with the need for physical open homes, particularly for tenants looking to rent from interstate.
Little Hinges are partnering with property managers to provide a sales-quality, 3-in-1 property management marketing pack.
For just $199, Little Hinges’ 3-in-1 PM pack includes:
- 10 x HD images
- Custom, branded floorplan
- 3D, millimetre-accurate virtual tour.
With a study by REA showing that 60 per cent of people are more likely to email and properties featured with virtual tours get 95 per cent more phone inquiries, agencies like Metro PM are showcasing their marketing innovation, growing their rent roll and saving time and resources.
