Obtaining a realistic rental value ensures that your Property is let as quickly as possible for a better financial return on your investment.
Once you authorize Property Management Specialists to act on your behalf by signing a Management Agreement we advertise your property using the following avenues:
We add your property with photos and a written description to the following popular websites:
We create a brochure with details and photos of your property which we distribute to prospective tenants on our prospective tenant database.
When property demand is low we will use newspaper advertising. The Lakes Weekly Bulletin is recommended however your best form of advertising hands down is the internet.
NOTE: All prospective tenants are accompanied by a Property Manager and inspections are carried out as many times as it is needed through the day.
All prospective applicants wishing to live at your property will be asked to fill in an Application Form, signing giving permission for Property Management Specialists to check all information they provide.
We confirm their payment and tenancy history by contacting their current and/or previous landlord or agent. In some cases, applicants may not have a tenancy history so we try and confirm other information to support their application.

We will always compare the property to the Entry Condition Report, Inventory (if applicable) and the 100 photos taken at the beginning of the tenancy.

Gold was found in the Arrow River in 1862, and a township of 1,000 miners soon sprang up. It was initailly named Fox's, based on William Fox's claim to have been first to find gold there, but was soon renamed Arrowtown. At the high point of the gold rush the population of Arrowtown rose to over 7,000 and it became the center of a larger municipality, which covered the new settlements of Macetown, Skippers Canyon and Bullendale (today only ghost towns).
Arrowtown was constituted as a borough in 1867 and became part of the Queenstown-Lakes District in the local government reorganisation of 1989. Source From Wikipedia
