Elders Real Estate Coomera is one of the most respected property management departments in the region.
We are proud of the service standards we can provide to you. We would like to point out some success keys that our department service standards are based on. In a nut shell – we require a tenant to ensure that their rent payments are made on time and the property is well maintained.
This is done in 5 key ways:
Careful Tenant Selection
Potential tenants must pass a 100 point identification
Recent landlord track history
Confirm employment details
We also check to see the applicant has not been listed on the Tenancy Information Centre of Australia
Never place a tenant without first consulting you.
Proper Tenancy Set Up
Apart from issuing the tenant with the appropriate information and legal forms, we also spend quality time with your tenant– fully informing them on our expectations – before they get the keys.
Strict Rent Control
If a tenant does not pay their rent when it is due:
We will personally follow up as quickly as possible. We believe that this type of follow up is the only effective way to solve this problem. If the communication from the tenant does break down we have procedures in place to have them evicted from the property in a timely manner.
We regularly inspect each property every 3-4 months.
You will be supplied with a room-by-room report and also photos of your property. Also we will list any maintenance needed to be carried out on the property.
Concise Final Inspection
Once we are aware that your tenant is vacating the property, we supply them with a detailed guide as to our expectations of how we would like the property returned. The bond will only be refunded once all expenses outstanding are paid (if any) and the property has met our expectations on handover.
We invite you to give the office a call today to discuss your options on our competitive packages with us and ask that you consider Elders Real Estate Coomera as your asset managers.
Why Use A Mortgage Broker?
Article by a leading Mortgage Broker in Brisbane – Alan Heath of Mortgage Choice
When I first began in Mortgage Broking, over 15 years ago, only 10% of the market used mortgage brokers. The question was – “why would you use a one?” It was as if the reason to use a mortgage broker was because there was something “wrong with your credit”. Today 50% of the market uses mortgage brokers and the question has changed – “why wouldn’t you use a one?” It’s primarily about trust.
A client of mine said to me when we first met; “I don’t trust my bank – but at least I know that … The problem with a broker though is how to know which one you can trust”.
A broker is paid by a lender – so how can you trust their intentions … well a bank employee is ALSO paid by the lender and HAS to tell you what their employer TELLS them to say.
A bank employee may well provide you with a legal duty of care BUT an employee’s PRIMARY responsibility is to their employer.
As a Mortgage Broker in Brisbane the thing I find most perplexing is that almost half the market STILL walks into their bank and takes what they are given often without question or options. How do you know for instance that a bank will give you the best home loan rate or the best home loan for you – and not for their own bottom line? Here are some proven tips to find a trusted mortgage broker – if a mortgage broker ticks all these boxes they are the one for you.
• Are they PAID THE SAME no matter which lender they recommend?
• Do they ask you for your personal circumstances before making lender suggestions?
• Do they explain the reasons behind their recommendations – including the impact that mortgage insurance may have on the choice?
• Are they a member of the leading professional body: the MFAA – to be a member a broker now MUST hold a Diploma in Financial Services?
• Do they work for a reputable brand – avoid one-man bands?
• Do they have experience?
• Do they have a website – does this web site have regularly updated information and useful tools such as a mortgage calculator
• And more particularly these days do they have a presence on other online sites? – facebook, linkedin, twitter, google places. You don’t want a broker stuck in the past.
• Do they have peer and industry recognition – these days you should be able to type their name and brand into Google – what has happened in the past should be there for you to see.
• Can they give you names of people who recommend them – better still does someone YOU TRUST recommend them?
Above all what you want is someone who will find the best home loan for you.

Purchasing a property, whether it be your new home or an investment property can be daunting. Here are a few tips that can help you throughout the process.
Start the savings plan early. The more deposit you have for a mortgage, the less loop holes you will have to go through to buy the property.
Consult your bank/mortgage broker. They will be able to inform you of your borrowing capacity, current interest rates and overall picture on fees and charges as well as giving you pre approval to go house hunting with. This puts you one step ahead of other buyers.
Research the market. You want to be able to get the most “Bang for you buck”.
Try before you buy. If you are looking to purchase an investment property and would like to have tenants already in place, inspect the property with the agent. You will be able to get a feel for the presentation and overall condition of the property once this is done.
Consider the re-sale. You want to be able (If needed) to sell the property in the future. This includes suburb growth and demand in the area.
