A Spring Cleaning Checklist for Your Multi-Family Residence
Spring is the season when new life begins again with everything turning green as the temperatures start to rise. It also marks the time of year when everyone gets rid of the clutter and gives everything a good once over by spring cleaning. Property managers can look at this time of year as an opportunity to make sure their properties are in the best condition they can be. With this in mind, here is a spring cleaning checklist for property managers.
Consider Starting a Newsletter
A newsletter is a good way to build a sense of community in your multi-family residences, helping tenants to feel included and that you care. It’s also a way keep them informed about any changes that you’re making to the property, including any construction or inconveniences in the weeks to come. By the same token, it’s a chance to open the dialogue and let them know you’re available for any concerns they may have. When the community sees you putting this kind of effort into your properties, they are much more likely to match it.
Make a Good First Impression
When people are talking about your properties, one of the first images that will pop into their heads is your signage and entryways. Those signs and gates are also the first the prospective residents see when they come to tour a unit. This spring, take a little extra time to make sure all signage is repaired and clean, the gates are in good shape, the front landscaping is cared for, etc.
Things like fire extinguishers, smoke and carbon monoxide alarm batteries, and burglary alarms often need to be checked at least once a year. This spring, talk a walk around the property and make sure everything has been inspected and supplied with fresh batteries. Filters and fans often need to be cleaned and replaced, too, so make sure those are also on your list. A few extra moments of preventative measures and maintenance can save a lot of headache and heartache down the road.
Make Sure to Stock Up on Supplies
Spring is a busy time of year for property managers as many people are moving during this time. Walls need to be patched and painted, carpets need to be cleaned or replaced, kitchens and bathrooms need to be spotless and sanitized. Keep a regular inventory and make sure your supply closets are stocked.
