Rental property maintenance is one of the keys to success with owning rental properties because, a well-maintained rental keeps tenants happy, and continues to produce long-term passive income.
Sadly, many property owners, or realtors who attempt to manage properties, fail at rental property maintenance because it’s easy to get overwhelmed with management and fall behind on maintenance.
Thankfully, rental property maintenance can be streamlined, especially when you follow these tips.
Essential Tips for Streamlining Rental Property Maintenance
Develop a maintenance plan – As with anything in life, having a plan for rental property maintenance is essential for ensuring that work gets done at the rental property, instead of postponed for another day in the future.
Thankfully, online tools like Google Calendar can make scheduling maintenance a breeze because you don’t have to remember things like when the next HVAC tune-up or when the inspection is because the calendar will remind you.
Encourage communication with tenants – Your tenants are going to be the ‘first line of defense’ to ensuring that the rental property stays in good shape but, communication is the key to making sure maintenance doesn’t become neglected.
Know when to outsource – Let’s face it, there are only 24 hours in a day, and you don’t want to spend those hours worrying about maintenance. This is why you should outsource maintenance to a licensed property manager like GoldenWest Management.
At GoldenWest Management, we have an in-house maintenance staff and we partner with trusted contractors in the local area for bigger projects. This makes it possible for us to handle repairs 24 hours a day, nights, weekends, and even during holidays.
