Today we are talking about some of the ways a Eugene property manager can protect your investment home. It’s something you should expect from your property manager. You hire a professional to make sure everything at your home is protected and running smoothly. A great property manager will have multiple skills. It’s important to know how to take care of your property in the long term, which means minimizing damage and maximizing revenue.
If your property looks bad, it won’t rent and that affects your bottom line. A property manager will ensure your home looks great on the inside and the outside. A rental property will attract more tenants if it looks like a great place to live. Property managers will also take care of any problems at that property. If your home has damages, that will be a huge liability to you. It’s important to protect your investment by doing regular property inspections when a tenant is in place. Those inspections can help prevent short term damage as well as long term damage. A good property manager will notice things that the tenant might not notice, such as a leak that’s started under a sink. To protect your investment, a property manager will take care of that right away.
Long term maintenance is essential. A property manager will perform that maintenance to prevent damage from water, wind, electrical problems and other issues that might arise at the property. These long term maintenance issues can get very costly if they aren’t taken care of right away.
Roofs, chimneys and HVAC units should be on a regular maintenance schedule with your property manager. The HVAC system should be inspected often because when it runs efficiently, it lasts much longer. When your gutters are clogged and not cleaned out, you risk damage to your property, which is why the roof needs to be looked at regularly. Chimneys need that regular maintenance because they can create a fire hazard if you aren’t aware of what’s going on with them. A good property manager will have long term strategies for all these things.
An important thing to remember is that good documentation is essential when it comes to protecting your property. You need to document everything related to the tenancy and you need to document income and expenses for your tax records. It’s especially important if you have to go to court; you want to have all your documentation in place.
