Called Digikit, the ground-breaking appraisal and listing application enables a property manager located in Gosford to create tailored, professional marketing documents within minutes, which can be sent to potential vendors, investors and landlords in Darwin, Dubai or Delhi with the click of a button.
The married couple Peter and Rachel Crossan appointed Raine & Horne Gosford to manage their vacant investment property located at 53 Narooma Road, Niagara Park after it had been managed for the past two years by two other real estate firms.
“Peter and Rachel plan retire to the Central Coast and the Niagara Park property is part of their long-term plans,” said Katie Tilden Bingham, Head of Property Management at the Central Coast firm.
“However, the vacant investment property was on the market with another agent, who advised the landlords the entire house needed renovations to attract a tenant.” The Crossans had also been left out of pocket when the previous tenants were refunded their deposit without properly cleaning the property.
Once the Crossans contacted Raine & Horne Gosford, it proved a serious challenge to coordinate a meeting with the pair as they are busy parents, who also work different night shifts in the mines.
“I obviously couldn’t meet with the landlords face-to-face, given their location, so thanks to Digikit I was able to provide a professional and polished listing presentation from the comfort of our office,” explained Mrs Tilden Bingham.
Digikit provides real-time market analytics and a client can submit feedback, and this information is delivered instantly to the mobile phone of an agent or property manager.
Mrs Tilden Bingham added, “Digikit also utilises data from RH Compass, our exclusive web-based CRM technology, as well as information from CoreLogic to build on-the-spot market statistics and comparable property reports.
“We have an excellent record as property managers across the Central Coast and Digikit backs up our reputation for professionalism, which made a huge impression on Peter and Rachel.
“Long story short, we saw the charm in the property, suggested a few minor repairs, and rented it quickly for $450 a week. This rent was higher than the original asking price.”
Mr and Mrs Crossan were clearly pleased with the results, writing in an online testimonial, “Since being with Raine & Horne we have had great communication and there is always someone available when we contact them. We were able to fix the damage and get tenants in pretty much straight away.”
