Property Management and Maintenance: Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Property Management MaintenanceAs a building owner, you have a responsibility to your tenants to provide a clean, safe environment. This means regular, preventive maintenance and timely repairs. Unfortunately, as they say, you can’t be everywhere at once, which is why maintenance is one of the biggest struggles for most landlords, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Property Management and Maintenance

Property management and maintenance go together like peanut butter and jelly…or something like that. If you do not properly maintain your rental property you run several risks. 1) Tenant complains will rise, meaning satisfaction is declining. This will make it harder to retain your current tenants and can also make it harder to attract new tenants. 2) Small repair issues will snowball into large, expensive issues. Either way, it’s not good. This is why it is important to enact a preventive maintenance program.

  1. Regular Inspections: Regularly inspect your rental properties every 6 months (also before and after move-ins), looking for warning signs of trouble. Don’t wait for your tenants to complain. Be proactive.
  2. Preventive Maintenance: Preventive maintenance is a cost-effective alternative to the wait and see approach.
  3. Timely Repairs: If you notice any issues, address them as soon as possible.
  4. Encourage Tennant Participation: Encourage your tenants to report any issues in a timely manner.

Fortunately, no one ever said you had to do things on your own. The solution: hire a local Property Management firm. Hiring a property manager is one way of freeing yourself of many time-consuming duties – like maintenance – associated with being a landlord.

A Property Management Firm Can Help Keep Maintenance Costs in Check

Property Management MaintenanceIf landlording was easy, everyone would be doing it. The truth is that being a landlord can be very difficult at times, especially if you own multiple rental properties. More properties…more rental units…more tenants…more potential problems. It can be tough to keep up with everything and, as a result, some things fall through the cracks.

When you are juggling rent collection with marketing (an empty rental unit quickly leads to an empty wallet) with all of your other duties, it can be easy to ignore something as seemingly unimportant as preventive maintenance. After all, the name preventive implies it isn’t necessary. Unfortunately, this is the type of thinking that could get you in trouble. Without employing a regular, preventive maintenance program you could find yourself faced with costly emergency repairs.

Most tenants will not complain about a small maintenance issue until it has snowballed out of control, requiring quick (and costly) repairs. These types of unexpected emergency repairs, especially large ones, are a landlord’s worst nightmare. They are almost impossible to budget for and they will quickly eat away at your profit margins.

It is much more cost effective to employ a preventive maintenance program to tackle small issues as they arise. As they say, a stitch it time saves nine.
