The benefits of hiring a property management company to help with maintenance

One of the main questions I receive during a phone call inquiry or free in-home consultation is: What are the benefits of hiring a property management company to help with maintenance?

Most homeowners who call in inquiring about our property management services are on the fence about self-management or shopping other competitors in the area. I love this question because it opens up the door of responsibilities the home owner can expect and how Utopia Management would handle maintenance compared to our competitors.  It allows me to explain possibilities other than the average tasks that come along with property management; showings, advertising, collecting rent, securing a qualified tenant etc.  Here is a brief description on how Utopia Management can help with the maintenance in your rental property. This topic alone is a major reason to contract a professional property management company for your rental or investment property.

Maintenance is a large portion of property management and owning a rental property. Having the right resources and contacts is a very crucial part of this process. An owner who would be self-managing might not receive the same contractor discounts as a large property management company. Utopia Management has a full in-house maintenance department available for use as well. Instead of outsourcing our maintenance to costly vendors, we have a contractor’s license and trusted maintenance techs with years of experience in working with rentals and tenants.  For example, sending a local plumber for a small plumbing issue like a leaking faucet at a higher hourly rate wouldn’t be cost effective. Utopia Management’s maintenance techs will service the property at a much lower rate. We have an experienced maintenance manager who will handle the call in-office and know the maintenance tech perfect for the job. Having a smoothly run maintenance department helps with keeping tenants satisfied in the property and maintenance costs low for our owners. It secures happy long term tenants and fewer turnovers in the end. The goal is maintaining your investment property while keeping the maintenance costs low.
