San Diego Property Management Tips – How Important Are Regular Inspections?
By Utopia Property Management
Are you planning on owning rental property in San Diego, or elsewhere in the state?
One of the most important tips that every San Diego property management company and landlord across the United States will agree on is the importance of regular inspections because they will help you to avoid the problem before they potentially occur.
Why Are Regular Inspections Important?
Regular inspections of your rental property are important because they will ensure that when your property is back on the rental market, people who are rental finding, or are searching for rental properties, will find a rental that’s in great condition and not in need of major repairs.
Thankfully, regular inspections are easy to do if you break them down into the following areas:
Outside – Inspect the exterior of your rental property including the paint, siding, landscaping, and roof. During this part of the inspection, you should also be searching for signs of critters which may have taken up residence in your rental property.
Inside – Inspect doors and windows to ensure that they are closing and sealing property, carpet, flooring and the general condition of your rental, including signs of abnormal wear and tear or critters.
Appliances – Inspect all appliances to ensure that they are functioning normally including dishwashers, refrigerators, washers/dryers and any other appliance that may come with the rental property.
Talk with Your Tenants
During the process of inspecting your rental property, you should also be talking with your tenants about each room in the rental and asking them if there is anything that’s broken or not working correctly so you can fix those problems.
