The spring and summer seasons are the most typical move-out times for renters. This means new beginnings for you and new tenants. Now is the perfect time to gather a spring cleaning list as a property owner. From actual cleaning to checking the books, there is always a way to improve the way that your rental property is managed for both you and your tenants.
1. Get Communicating
Obviously, not all of your tenants are going to be moving out. So, in order to make sure that all of your property renters are in the loop, now is a great time to come up with a creative newsletter that reads as a great reminder of your tenant requirements, expectations and more.
In this newsletter, not only do you have the goal of keeping your tenants in line, but you are also reaching out for ways you can improve as a property manager. Some of the items to include in your spring newsletter include:
- A review of expectations
- New things you plan on doing to improve the property
- Asking about any maintenance issues that need to be resolved
- How they can best enjoy their spring and summer around your property
2. Perform Preventative Maintenance
Even though you just asked for maintenance issues that need to be fixed, you should already have an idea of preventative measures that you can take to improve your property. Now is the time to begin to stock up on the necessities:
- Air conditioning filters
- Light bulbs
- Shower heads
- Heating elements for water heaters
3. Inspect Your Properties
Now is the perfect time to get on the roof of your properties and inspect the state of your roofs. You should also schedule a local plumber to come out and inspect your pipes to make sure that your plumbing is in great order. Along with the roof and plumbing, you should connect with a contractor to inspect your rental property for damages.
If you have had any trouble with current tenants, now is when you should schedule a time to come in and inspect how they are taking care of your rental property.
4. Go Over Your Budget and Contracts
With people moving out, you will need to review your current contracts and budget with businesses providing services to your rental. You want to make sure that you are paying a fair price for the number of tenants remaining on your rental property.
5. Hire a Property Management Company to Help Maximize Your Time Spent
With all of your current responsibilities moving towards getting your property clean for spring, you are going to have a hard time keeping up with other daily property management. By reaching out to a third-party Dallas property management company, you can get several necessities under control and manage your time wisely. A property management company can help you with:
- Background checks
- Vendor contact
- Drafting lease agreements
