Managing Routine Maintenance and and Repair
Managing Routine Maintenance and Repair Proper maintenance of your property saves money. Much like proper car maintenance prevents more expensive engine problems and repair in the future, property management and repair when needed prevents more serious problems for owners in the future. Routine maintenance prevents costly repairs and replacement on your property and potential legal issues, as well as keeping tenants satisfied. Satisfied tenants reduce turnover which maximizes your property’s profitability.
We schedule all required maintenance and coordinate the work with your tenants’ schedules, to ensure that regular maintenance is not overlooked, and that you don’t have to manage it yourself.
We ensure that the following annual activities are performed on your property:
– Clean the dryer vent
– Check air filters
– Check smoke detectors
– Check Carbon Monoxide Detectors
– Inspect interior & exterior caulking
– Yard maintenance
During inspections or scheduled maintenance appointments, we check for any necessary repairs that need to be performed. We immediately ensure repairs are made that fall within maintenance approval limits.
