Maintenance is one of the most complicated parts of renting out an Odenton investment property. If you don’t already have a preferred list of vendors and contractors in place, you could spend a lot of time and money trying to get repairs made at your rental property.
Keyrenter Annapolis Property Management manages single-family and multi-family properties throughout Anne Arundel County, including in Odenton, Crofton, and Pasadena as well as on Kent Island. We’ve seen our share of necessary repairs at the properties we manage and know that professional property management can help.
Even better is professional property management with an in-house maintenance team. There are a number of benefits to this, and we’re discussing those advantages today.
Working with Licensed and Insured Contractors
Having access to licensed and insured contractors is critical. You don’t want to hire anyone off the street to make important repairs. This only increases your liability and risk. You also don’t want to make the repairs yourself – when you have time – if you’re not licensed and trained to do the work.
At Keyrenter Annapolis, we have a contracting background. We know what to look for and how to ensure the repairs are being done correctly, and at the right price.
With our in-house maintenance experts, you’ll know you’re getting licensed and insured professionals who can be counted on to do good work. You won’t have to worry about lawsuits and liability if someone falls off a ladder to get into an accident.
Keeping Repairs Cost-Effective
Maintenance can be expensive and if you’re not sure what things should cost, you can end up paying more than you should. With access to an in-house maintenance team, you won’t have to worry about overpaying. Your property managers understand the repair and maintenance needs of your property. They work closely with handymen and maintenance crews to make sure the needs are met affordably. You won’t go over budget and you won’t have to waste time collecting bids from competing contractors.
Responsive Emergency Repairs
When there’s an emergency at the property, you won’t have to waste time looking for someone who can respond. Your property manager will immediately dispatch a professional to diagnose the problem and make a plan for resolving it. This is good for you because any further damage will be mitigated. It’s good for your tenants because their issue will be responded to immediately.
Flexibility When Repairs are Extensive
While our in-house team is excellent at taking care of the general repairs that are needed at your property, we’re quick to understand when a more nuanced professional is required. When there’s extensive plumbing or electrical work that needs to be done, or you need a complete renovation to be managed, we have relationships in place with outside contractors who can help us.
Keeping a maintenance team on staff means our vendors are readily available to be scheduled for work. Odenton landlords don’t have to worry about the scheduling of any outside vendors. We are in control of how much the maintenance work costs and how the employees are paid. Coordinating repairs is often more efficient.
