Our work in the real estate industry

Strategic accounting for a local real estate agent

We were brought in to offer accounting support for a family-owned real estate business in Camberwell.

Initially we took over their bookkeeping, setting up the right systems to deliver more accurate weekly numbers, as well as more efficient payroll services, which saved them 3 hours work each week.

Next we organised their trust account to be independently audited, before organising commercial loans for the purchase of their business property.

More recently, we have also supported them with financing for a rent roll acquisition.

Frequently asked questions

How much is a rent roll valued at?

Rent rolls have appreciated in value over recent years. Each rent roll value is different, based on how the rental market is performing and the demand, plus a a number of other factors.

In recent times, rent rolls have been valued at between 3 and 3.5 times annual sales. This makes them a great asset to build up alongside your real estate brand and business.

How can I solve irregular cashflow?

Lumpy cashflow is a common issue in the real estate industry. Sales can drop for extended periods and the market can be easily swayed by external factors.

It can be helpful to know your fixed overheads and monthly break-even amount. We also recommend creating a budget and a 12-month cashflow forecast, which can be incorporated into your online accounting software to help compare forecast vs actuals.

Supplementing sales income with rental management income can also help you to ride out any slow periods.

What's the best way to keep track of staff and client expenses?

Recently, there have been huge developments in software that enables you to track expenses and allocate them, whether it's to staff or clients. Some notable applications include Receipt Bank, HubDoc and Expensify. It's important to evaluate these solutions and select the one that best integrates with your business.
