2018 September Wrap - Presented by Dot Hamilton (BDM, First National Palm Beach | The Pines | Burleigh)


We are talking to Dot Hamilton, Property Management Director and Business Development Manager for First National Palm Beach.
First National Palm Beach is a pretty good barometer of the Property Management market on the southern Gold Coast.

Now the dust has settled how did you find September?

In a word busy!
  • 989 enquiries
  • 119 inspections from 314 tenants
  • 71 applications
  • 13 properties leased
How are you finding the market?
  • It is still healthy with plenty of demand.
  • In some cases we had to do minor price adjustments for some properties but every property rented for the last advertised price.
  • The arrears situation is also very good.
  • Arrears at two days were 2.8% of the rent roll, so 97.2% of our tenants paid by the due date.
  • Our vacancy rate in the end of September was 1.7%, so 98.3% of our properties were rented and producing income for our owners.
 Thanks Dot, sounds like another great productive month at first National Palm Beach!
