You take your car for an oil change every 3,000 miles to make sure it continues running smoothly. So why aren’t you taking the same preventative measures with your rentals by hiring a property management company? These services offer a host of benefits, and Arc Property Management Group in New York, NY, will provide them for you.
3 Advantages of Preventative Property Management
1. Lower Long-Term Costs
Arguably, the top benefit of professional preventative maintenance for your co-op apartments is long-term savings on large repairs. For example, regular check-ins on the roof prevent leaks that lead to costly damage. Water damage can also be caused by a lack of plumbing preventative maintenance, so it’s best to have bathrooms and laundry areas checked periodically.
Heating and cooling systems should also be checked for both efficiency performance and parts wear to result in the most savings. A quality property management company will also ensure your building has energy-efficient lighting for safety and savings.
2. Fewer Service Calls
Preventative management means less chance of property features malfunctioning, which leads to fewer service calls. Not only does this save you time overall, but preventative property management can be done on your schedule, versus service requests that sometimes need immediate attention.
3. Remain Attractive to Tenants
Proper preventative rental property management maintains a good first impression to tenants searching the neighborhood. For example, shutters falling from buildings or an unclean pool can deter a good renter. Additionally, current tenants are sure to spread word, good or bad, about their experience, so you want to maintain a good reputation.
The benefits of preventative management are undeniable, but there’s no doubt it’s a lot of work. That’s why you should employ the services of the fully insured and bonded team at Arc Property Management Group.
