Marrickville - Suburb Demographics : Census 2011

To better understand the PROPERTY MANAGEMENT potential of your INVESTMENT PROPERTY it is crucial to research the suburb of MARRICKVILLE. A good starting point is to assess the population demographics of MARRICKVILLE to understand who are your potential tenants and/or purchasers.

As experienced property managers our property management team uses this information to identify the target market when developing a marketing strategy for your rental property.

This ensures that we provide our landlords with the most accurate advice, achieve the highest rent and attract the best tenants who will look after your valuable investment property.

Unfortunately in most cases the local REAL ESTATE AGENT PROPERTY MANAGEMENT places little importance in keeping up to date with this vital information. Usually because they are either overworked, under staffed or don’t understand the importance.
