Corona Virus Message
Uptown Apartments – here to stay
We start this Corona Virus Message with our heartfelt thanks to the men and women on the frontline of this pandemic, selflessly doing their job in such trying times, no doubt deflecting any notion of being heroes. We are in your debt as a nation and a community, and we stand by you.
Many, if not most of us, are struggling to some degree with the restrictions we are experiencing in our communities and our economy. It is an ever-changing landscape, and we are in the unknown. Thankfully, Australia has a strong and reliable system of government, and the procedures that have been put in place seem to have steadied the ship for the time-being.
Nonetheless, there has been significant disruption, and we will most likely have to learn to live with a new state of ‘normal’ over the coming months and years.
At Uptown Apartments, we have built on our years of experience to adapt to these changes. We are grateful that our relationships with our owners and landlords, which have been built up over many years, have enabled us to negotiate a path through these times, building a bridge to the other side.
While many of our competitors have temporarily or permanently closed their doors, WE ARE HERE TO STAY.
We are not suggesting it has been or will be easy, and we will be feeling the sting of the mass cancellations we have experienced for some time. However, we will get through and we believe we will be better for it.
We are still finding some avenues of business that are enabling us to source income for our owners, albeit at heavily discounted rates.
Some people are wanting to shift to short-term arrangements rather than renewing long-term leases. Some people are wanting to self-isolate away from elder family members or housemates. Some people need an office away from home to maintain productivity whilst children are home from school. There are sources of current bookings, and if you need help in one of these areas please contact us.
If you have an investment property, especially if it is already furnished, and you are experiencing issues getting tenants, please get in touch with us to find out if we can help. We are not profiting at the moment – we are simply trying to cover costs and help others where we can. Our hope is that we can build stronger relationships that will come to full fruition once things improve.
When the crisis is over, and it will be over, we expect a large increase in domestic travel. People will want to visit loved ones interstate. Corporate meetings and relocations that were previously put on hold will need to be reorganised. People will want to get away from where they have been confined.
You, our valued customers, will want to travel.
And we will be here for you.
Stay safe, stay at home.
We are all in this together.
David and Nicki Lee
