The key factors when it comes to managing investment properties – or having properties managed for you – are simplicity and great communication.
This is most important when considering any form of renovations. If, for example, the owner is overseas or can’t immediately find time to visit the property, then any misunderstandings or delays in communication can cause costly downtime for renovations, weeks’ worth of lost rent, or, work that isn’t to the owner’s liking.

Tessa Keeling, Property Manager for Quinovic Property Management in Riccarton:
‘Both myself and the homeowner are very happy with the outcome. The new flooring has made a significant difference to the property. The whole process was smooth sailing.
Harcourts property manager Leeann Jones recently oversaw a renovation in Rangiora for her client who is based overseas. She worked alongside Christina, who owns Harrisons Carpet in Christchurch Central region.
“The property was looking a bit dowdy so I suggested to my owner that we look at a revamp and she gave me the go-ahead to arrange this,” Leeann says.
“I arranged a complete new paint job throughout the property and then I asked Harrisons Carpet to quote on a new carpet – this is when I met Christina who went and measured up and gave me samples and recommendations of what would work in the property based on its style and the paint colours I wanted to use.
“I photographed the samples and emailed my owner in the UK for her approval. I then authorized Harrisons to complete the job and – wow – what an amazing transformation, as the before and after photos show. It didn’t even look like the same house, it was amazing. Harrisons Carpet made everything so easy and stress-free.”
