How Does Southern Handle Long-Term Rental Maintenance
Thinking about renting your property long-term? Long-term rentals could be a great investment opportunity, however, there is a lot to understand when it comes to choosing the right property management company for your rental. Occupancy, revenue, marketing, and other services are important things to understand before making the leap and putting your property up for a long-term rental. Here at Southern, property management is what we do! We can assist you with all these services listed. One major thing to ask about is maintenance! How is maintenance handled? Who takes care of things? How are they paid for? We would like to go over a couple of maintenance topics and provide insight into how Southern handles long-term rental maintenance.
Communication & Expectations
Before listing your property with us, we will have tough and meaningful conversations about how involved you would like to be. For example, necessary fixes could be handled by Southern by just sending you an update on our plan. Or we can go to you for approval before handling anything. Having open communication is the best tool our team can have in making sure your property is rightfully cared for. So, before speaking with a representative, it would be beneficial to have an idea of your maintenance expectations. That way, we can make the most out of every conversation.
Our Maintenance Policy
Being in the industry for 25 years means we have built incredible relationships with trusted and licensed vendors. We send out work orders to professionals in the area when there is something damaged or not working within your property. We can work with these vendors as well as with the owner to ensure we are getting the best service for the best price. Southern will spearhead those conversations to ensure they are completed efficiently.
We hope these two items give you a better idea of how Southern handles long-term rental maintenance. If you would like to learn more, contact a member of our team today!
