Property for rent
Dear readers, in this post we are going to discuss about rental properties and also some hiring equipment, just to show you that people don't have to own everything they use, well at least it is so in Australia.
So, let us talk about it, as we all know the rental market is formed by two groups of people, one group of people have no properties or not enough properties for their own use, and because of this shortage they want to rent properties from those that are willing to rent their property for an agreed price, so they are on the market looking to find the right property to rent.
On the other hand, there are people that own a property or several properties that they have bought, or they have built these properties for renting to other people, because they know that there is a market of supply and demand on these properties for rent. Anyhow this is how the rental market works.
In today markets, not only you can rent a unit a house or some other commercial or industrial properties, but you can also hire many things, you can rent furniture and white goods, even the builder while he is building hires many things, let us mention a couple of things that are usually hired; scaffolding are usually hired, there are firms that will also build it up for you, cranes are usually hired, and other heavy equipment are usually hired, and many other things can be hired for a price, as long as there is a market for supply and demand.
But now, let us go back to our properties for rent; as we all know every one of us have our own ways of doing things, because everyone of us might be in a different position; so to write about this rental property article we have to write it our own way, therefore let us see what we have been writing lately and let us tell our story our own way, the best way we can, as we have done in our section D.I.Y brickwork etc.
D.I.Y property for rent
Lately in this DIY section we have mainly talked about how to build houses units and other accommodation and perhaps even some industrial property. Okay we have done that or at least part of it anyhow, but at this point of time one may start asking about the use of these properties that have been built, renovated or repaired, because it would be obvious that we could not keep all of them for our own use, so the properties that we have talked about, if they have not an owner that uses them already, they have to be sold or rented, so, we have to decide how we will do that, it is a fact of life.
So let us say at this point of time that we have been lucky enough and today we happen to own some properties and we rent them, at the moment a unit has become vacant, so, we need to rent this unit; because we have this extra property that we are not going to use for ourselves, so, we should consider renting; but who is going to do the renting we have to decide, of course we could go to the local real estate agents and ask them to let our property and they would be glad to do it for a price, but in this case we have decided not to use the real estate agents, because we would like to have a go at renting this property ourselves, at least we would like to try, because we could save some money and also learn something from doing it our own way.
We have some experience about renting and we know that sometimes it is not easy to rent yourself, but we are willing to have a go, because we believe that by renting ourselves, we don’t have to pay the real estate agent first of all, and then we believe that we would have more control on the rental property, just because we are the owners and would try harder to see anything that needs to be done.
However we are not as knowledgeable as the real estate agent, since he is an expert on these sort of things, and also sometimes it is not easy to discuss things directly with the tenants; you see the real estate agent has some advantage in this field, not only because it is his job, but because he is a third person, so when he does not want to clarify some inquiries to the new tenant, he can always say that he would like to talk to the owner first; there is also something else that the agents have but the owners do not, you see they can look at the pool of rental records, and see whether the new tenant has a record as being on a black list.
Anyhow we know all this and we still would like to rent our property ourselves, so let us discuss how we are going to do it and the reasons for doing it, because we have this property for rent and that is a fact of life.
Anyhow this post is becoming too long and what we have to say about renting is going to take another page or two, so we will continue with our next post; unit available for rent. See you soon.
