Had my property in Mt. Austin for around 14 months now. Found a tenant whilst waiting for settlement, they were all good until the male in the property lost his job. After that they were late every month and would pay up just at the right time. Opted to not keep them on. Advertised for tenant, property was vacant for 4 weeks. Multiple applicants but not quality. Waited til right tenant came along, now have a family with an elderly mother in the property. PM says they're looking after property as though it's their own. As I've mentioned previously, I first looked at buying in Ashmont but after speaking with local PM's who either refused to manage the properties or were going to charge 15% management fee + other large costs... I decided they painted a pretty good picture for me.
