Handling all of the tasks related to home maintenance—like security, HVAC care, and daily chores—used to be doable. But in today’s fast-paced world where homeowners lead busy lives, it feels like a pipe dream. For that reason, many South Florida homeowners are turning to companies that offer tailored solutions, such as services related to cleaning, car maintenance, contractor coordination, routine repairs, and more.
In this article, we explore the many services you can expect when you partner with a property management company. We’ll delve into how it can give you more time for self-care, family, and other things that matter to you, allowing you to enjoy your home to the fullest.
It’s imperative to maintain your property over time, not only because it allows you to live in a comfortable, fully functional home, but it’s also one of the best ways to raise its return value. Furthermore, maintenance is one of the best preventive measures to prevent costly repairs in the future.
To properly maintain your home, it’s crucial to constantly ensure that the home’s components continue to perform optimally, and are in their best possible shape. For example, you’d need to have your HVAC checked once a year to ensure it functions the way it was intended to, otherwise, it may malfunction when you need it the most.
However, with the long list of to-dos, you may find it overwhelming to tackle them on your own. Fortunately, when you hire a property management company, they will assume your roles for you, granting you peace of mind and freedom. They’ll conduct regular walkthroughs of your home, and carry out the necessary tasks to make sure it’s well-maintained at all times.
Along with maintenance, a property management company will carry out repairs when necessary. When they spot a potential issue during their walkthrough, they won’t waste time dealing with it immediately, tapping into their vast network of vetted vendors. Having been in the business for a long time, they’ve already built long-standing connections with the area’s top local talent.
And because they’re able to drive business to these vendors, this gives them a negotiating edge, passing on the cost savings to their clients (i.e. you). This means that you’ll be able to secure the best possible rates for repairs, while ensuring that your property is being worked on by the more-than-capable people.
Contractor waiting services
In addition to carrying out repairs, property management companies will offer to wait for your contractors for you. Typically, without the assistance of a company, you would have to wait at home to relay your instructions to their contractor and make sure the work is completed correctly. But with a property management company by your side, you can go about your day-to-day life, because they’ll be the ones to do that for you.
Not only will they select the most suitable people for the job, but they’ll also oversee the entire project. With their experience in managing a wide range of repair works, they have the expertise when it comes to timelines, the expected quality of work, and other matters you may not be familiar with. They’ll coordinate with your contractors, communicate your requirements, and overall, make sure that the work is completed swiftly without compromising on quality. This allows you to focus on your own commitments, without the need to provide constant supervision.
Pre- and post-disaster assistance
Another important home management service you can expect when you hire a property management company involves disaster preparedness. As a Florida homeowner, you may be well aware that your property is vulnerable to events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods. As such, it’s crucial to have a solid preparedness plan that covers pre- and post-disaster activities.
A property management company will work closely with you to create and implement a plan that’s tailored to your needs and your property’s distinct characteristics (such as its location). With a preparedness plan, you can ensure that your home suffers from the least amount of damage during natural disasters.
Post-disaster, your dedicated manager will be a reliable point of contact, working with contractors to repair your property as swiftly as possible. Additionally, you can count on them to guide you with the tasks you need to do, such as documenting the damage for insurance claims.
Most homeowners overlook the fact that home maintenance also includes car or vehicle maintenance. And while this service isn’t commonly offered in standard packages, it’s highly recommended for homeowners who own multiple cars but lack the time to have them maintained.
Anyone who owns a car will know how crucial it is to start your vehicle even if it’s not in use or is in storage. A property management company will not take care of that for you, but they’ll also schedule maintenance checks for all of your vehicles, regardless of whether you own a Bentley or Bugatti. By doing so, they can prevent breakdowns on the road, and ensure that your car remains in optimal condition for years to come.
You’re going to need to do more than just locking your doors when you go out, especially if you own a high-end home. To ensure the safety of your property’s contents, you’ll need to improve your home’s security features.
When you hire a property management company, they’ll conduct a thorough check of your home’s current security systems, and recommend ways to improve them. For example, they may suggest the installation of state-of-the-art security cameras, the construction of a wrap-around fence, or the addition of exterior lighting. Through these proactive steps, you can enhance your property’s overall security, protect its contents, and safeguard it against intruders.
