Evaluating your rental property

Before you rush into the rental process, it is helpful to value your property to determine what it is worth, and what rental fees you should charge. Landlords who take the local average rental fee as a benchmark run the risk of making a big mistake.


If your property is far better than the average rental home in the area, setting rental prices at the benchmark costs money.


If your property is not of the standard of the average rental home in the area, setting rental prices at the benchmark might mean tenants hold no interest in the property.

We evaluate your property, on its own terms, and in relation to the local housing and property market. Our experienced team of agents help you determine the right value.

A rental property value isn’t just about setting fees, it helps you target the most appropriate tenant.


We are firm believers in the importance of finding the right tenant for your property. The local area and the likely rental fee are just two of the factors we consider when marketing your property. We do our best to connect you with the most suitable candidates, but you always have the final say on who you let to.
