Boom­ing rental mar­ket

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

THE Port Dou­glas rental mar­ket ap­pears to be boom­ing with the team at LJ Hooker cel­e­brat­ing sign­ing up ten­ants at rate of more than one a day for the month of May.

Prin­ci­pal Michael Sam­son said he was de­lighted with such a high num­ber of res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties leased and proud of his team who achieved the re­sult while main­tain­ing a high stan­dard of ten­ant screen­ing and pre­sen­ta­tion of the prop­er­ties.

“Th­ese re­sults rep­re­sent a stronger de­mand for good rental prop­er­ties in the Port Dou­glas re­gion. Hope­fully this may in­di­cate a good High sea­son for 2012,’’ he said.

“Hol­i­day ac­com­mo­da­tion book­ings are also higher than this time last year.’’

On the res­i­den­tial rental mar­ket Mr Sam­son said that max­i­mum re­turns from res­i­den­tial in­vest­ment prop­er­ties largely de­pended on pre­sen­ta­tion.

“Good ten­ants re­gard their rental home with as much pride as an owner/ occupier and have in re­cent mar­kets had plenty to choose from,” he said.
