The fish that got away.
The thrill of owning an investment condo daze many
first-time Landlords with high expectations and without realising that competition is
great, start to demand high rentals and rejecting the few offers made. Nowadays, there are
not many offers.
Below are some real life stories which, hopefully may help other first-timers to be more decisive and realistic.
"My real estate agent tells me I can get S$12,000 rental for my Costa Rhu Penthouse" said an Owner, rejecting a $11,000 offer and ignoring the fact that his penthouse does not have the splendid panoramic water front views, garden and balconies as a few others. After 3 months, there was no offer.
"If the realtor had not got the wrong address, my corner semi-detached would have been rented" said another landlord whose house is filled with junk, excess old furniture and evidence of bad leaks from the roof (fungus and dampness in false ceilings). It will be a waste of Asia USA associate's time even to co-broke and list this place, no matter how well located to East Coast Road because Tenants have so many choices. NOBODY WANTS TO LIVE IN LEAKING HOUSES. First impression counts and you have only 5-10 minutes to show your unit.
"I could get more than $4,000"
said a Landlord of a 2nd floor unit in Costa Rhu and rejected the offer from a
Hongkong lawyer who had done all her feng-shui checks and wanted her unit.
Therefore, be realistic.
