If you’re a property manager, you understand the daily stresses that come along with the job. While some of these stresses are inevitable, it’s possible that you could make your day to day duties less stressful by improving some of your processes. Follow these 5 helpful tips:
- Embrace technology. The more properties you manage, the trickier it becomes to keep track of all the things that need to be done. Try some of the new market apps and software systems. These programs were made for property managers, featuring all kinds of tools that allow you to schedule maintenance for individual properties, keep track of vacancies, record finances, create an online tenant portal, and more.
- Choose tenants wisely. Its understandable you might be tempted to fill any vacancies as quickly as possible to keep revenue flowing, but it’s also critical that you have a process in place (while still following all local rental laws) that requires certain criteria of the renter.
- Find a trustworthy emergency services provider. Look no further than SERVPRO of Edmonds for your restoration needs. Our team is highly trained and has experience in a multitude of projects. We are reliable 24/7 365 days a year for all of your emergency needs. Keep us on speed dial; 425-775-5723.
- Don’t Procrastinate. Don’t let that leaky toilet wait until next week, don’t wait until next month to look for a plumber or see about fixing that nasty pothole or roof leak. Address problems as they occur to avoid chaos in the future.
- Engage with your clients. Client engagement is key to maintaining good relationships with your tenants. Some landlords or property managers are very hands off – and that can be a plus for some tenants. However, we can guarantee you that just about every tenant will want you to be hands-on when they’re experiencing an issue or have a complaint. Make your tenants aware that you’re easy to reach and let your vendors be your eyes and ears!
