However there are some things that can be done to create more of an even flow to the overall management and maintenance that the tenant needs.
First, planning ahead can go along way to making things such as season work and scheduled maintenance much easier not only for the tenants but for the workers and vendors doing the work as well. Take into consideration holidays, seasonal weather patterns as well as historical maintenance plans to create a calendar that you will be able to communicate throughout your organization.
Next, keeping property values at their maximum should be on the list of all property managers so as to keep their own reputation in good standing, but also it helps keep in line with what the owners are thinking as well. Prioritizing a list of things that will keep the property appealing to the eye as well as functioning as advertised are key items in keeping up property values.
Finally, make sure you are setting realistic expectations regarding the timing of scheduled maintenance as well as emergency repairs or larger jobs goes a long way in keeping both drama and something falling through the cracks. Setting deadlines and keeping an updated schedule that your team has access to is considered a necessity for an ongoing project with many moving parts.
