Prescott Rental Property Maintenance Protects Your Asset
Most rental property owners understand the necessity of spending money to make routine and emergency repairs. That doesn’t mean it’s easy. No one wants to lose money on leaky faucets and old appliances. At HomeQwik, we know that keeping costs affordable is an important part of helping you earn more on your Prescott rental property. We also know that preventative maintenance is an important part of protecting the condition and value of your asset.
Emergency repairs will happen from time to time, and they’re never expected. However, an urgent and complete response is critical. We’ll make sure your property is well-maintained without spending your money unnecessarily. It contributes to better tenant retention and a property that’s growing in value.
Steps to Maintenance Plans You Can Trust
Maintaining your Prescott rental property is one of the things we do best at HomeQwik. We have a process in place that starts with good planning, excellent budgeting, and ongoing communication with both owners and tenants. We take care of:
Maintenance budgeting and planning. This includes helping you understand the lifespan of your most expensive functions, including roofs, HVAC, and appliances.
Online and documented repair requests from tenants. We make it easy for residents to submit a maintenance request, providing an online portal that tracks the reporting and the repair.
Tenant and owner communication and responsiveness. You and your tenants will always know what we’re planning. We’ll follow up to ensure the repairs were completed satisfactorily.
Our exceptional vendor relationships, expertise in maintenance, and lower repair costs lead to a better-maintained home and happier tenants.
We maintain homes all over Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, and in the surrounding communities.
Preventative Maintenance Protects Your Property
While we do an excellent job of responding to any emergency and routine repairs at your property with efficiency and expertise, we prefer to avoid the risk of deferred maintenance and the surprise of emergency repairs. We prefer a preventative maintenance approach. This helps us to protect the condition of your investment. It also reduces your long-term maintenance costs.
We have been managing and maintaining Prescott rental properties for a long time, and we’ve learned that there isn’t a single repair that gets easier or less expensive with time. When we’re managing your property preventatively, we look for things like:
Leaks under sinks.
Tree branches and debris on roofs.
Appliances needing repair and replacement.
HVAC inspections and service calls.
Pest control and treatment.
That’s above-and-beyond Prescott property management. It’s better for you, your tenants, and your investment.
We manage maintenance all over Prescott, in zip codes like 86301, 86302, 86303, 86304, 86305, 86312, 86313, 86314, 86315, and 86323.
Frequently Asked Questions from Owners
Do I Really Need a Property Manager?
It depends on how experienced you are, and how much time/money you can invest while you learn. On the surface, managing a rental property seems like a pretty simple proposition. When you really get into all the ‘little’ things that can happen with a home and a tenant, and the laws that govern how you work with both, it is more than most people can handle well. That’s why very few people manage their own rental homes long term. Most people handling a rental home for the first time will end up going with a property management company, or let frustration push them out of real estate investing entirely. How much does it cost you every day to have your property sit vacant? If you don’t know, you should figure it out. Rent/30 is the cost of each vacant day while your busy life commitments push the rental to the back burner. Most people can’t afford NOT to hire a professional property manager.
Unless you have a solid background in property management, your most expensive choice will probably be to ‘save some money’ and manage the home yourself. Unless you are very good at pricing your rental, running an ad, taking calls, and negotiating a lease, it is easy to add a month or two to each vacancy. You may lease the house for less than it is worth, or settle for a tenant you can’t properly screen. Unless you are experienced with managing the tenant, it is easy to have a simple 30 day eviction turn into 60 days or more of lost income. With a regular full time job taking your time, even seasoned experts can rarely manage their own rental home efficiently enough to save money over a professional property management company. Those extra vacant months quickly cost you more than Management fees ever will.
