We all heard our mothers say it when we were younger “you won’t get anything done with that attitude!” As it turns out, mum was right! Adopting a proactive attitude often makes the world of difference.
Here at Property Solutions 101, we know how true this is – not only in our day-to-day lives, but even in our work! Often an obstacle with certain houses and clients may arise. However, it’s important we stay upbeat and positive – as this almost always has an effect on the final outcome of the situation.
Take a recent situation with a property in a palm-tree studded street in Carrington. The place had recently become available for rent and – as always – it was our goal to match the perfect tenants with the home, in the quickest time possible.
There were two problems that soon came to our attention; style and price. The property was quite unique and would’ve best suited a niche client-type. The home was also competing with two other properties for lease on the same street – both properties were larger than ours and advertised at lower prices.
However, we chose not to let these obstacles dampen our attitude!
We stayed positive and came up with a competitive marketing plan. Pairing this with the proactive approach of daily open house inspections, we reached our goal sooner than expected!
While we had partnered the home with a perfectly suited tenant, the other properties on the street remained available.
The long-term tenants have now signed their lease, unpacked their moving boxes and settled into their new family home.
