2. Get your rental property appraised

Once you have contacted your residential leasing agent, they will make a convenient time to meet you and your investment property.


The rental property appraisal service is free of cost and obligation. The appraisal will keep you informed and updated on our current rental market and help you develop a trusting relationship with your residential leasing agent and our Fall property management team.


The formal rental property appraisal and the residential leasing agent will continue to help you as you navigate through the next stage in your real estate journey.

Your success is our success.

3. The rental marketing campaign

At Fall Real Estate, we have a rental marketing campaign package for rental properties that covers all key marketing platforms - printed and digital. We design and implement a marketing campaign to reach as many suitable potential tenants as possible.


We like to make things as easy as possible for our investors. Hence, we have created a seamless and highly effective marketing campaign for all our rental properties to work towards our investors receiving their rental yield sooner rather than later.


Your residential leasing agent will provide you with our Fall rental marketing campaign and step you through the best way forward for your investment property and goals.

At Fall, our marketing campaign covers all key digital and print platforms, making sure your property reaches as many people as possible.

4. Decide on a rental price

Once you have received your formal rental property appraisal and marketing campaign, you can finalise your property's rental price with your residential leasing agent.


Your agent will start preparing your rental marketing campaign, including the printed and digital campaigns.

5. Preparing your property for tenants

You will need to prepare your investment property for our photographer to take professional photos.


Your residential leasing agent will be able to provide you with tailored tips for preparing your rental property for advertising and tenancy.


Your residential leasing agent will also discuss the minimum standard for a rental property and how you can ensure to achieve this for your tenants. This will involve legislative requirements for a rental property in Tasmania.

6. Preparing your property for the first tenant inspections

Ensure your investment property is clean, de-cluttered, well-presented, and ready for potential tenants to walk through the door.


Our residential leasing agents have been trained and are comfortable talking to a variety of people and assessing whether they are the right fit for your property. So you can rest assured that once the property is clean and tidy, you have nothing more to do!


Your agent will have sound knowledge of your rental property's suburb and will confidently communicate with potential tenants while developing insights into their interest in renting your property.


Overall, when we show the property by open inspection or personal inspection, we ensure that clients are always accompanied by one of our professional Fall property managers or residential leasing agents during the inspection.

Ensuring your investment property is clean, de-cluttered, well-presented will give it the best chance at being leased.

7. Tenant applications

Once the first open inspection has occurred, you will start receiving applications from tenants asking to rent your property.


Should you accept the first tenant application or wait for a better tenant to come along?


Your residential leasing agent will help you to decide which tenant application best fits your investment property.

8. Tenant occupancy

Once you have chosen a tenant(s), you can hand over the management and communication to our Fall property management team.
