Property management is full of responsibilities. On the best day — for example, when your vendors show up for a turns process, do a great job, and everything is on schedule — it’s manageable. But how often does that happen?
No matter how much you try to control certain responsibilities, situations you can’t control will always crop up. But what if you could control these situations and conquer efficient property management? In this blog post, we’re going to show you how.
Be One Step Ahead
A typical day for property managers looks something like this — you’ve scheduled a painter for a turn. The painter shows up late and notices a small hole in the wall. You have to run back to the office to see if your maintenance contractor is available. They’re not. You spend the next 45 minutes trying to find someone else to fix the wall.
Your whole day is thrown off, and the turns process is only one small aspect of your job. At the same time, you might be facing other challenges, like low resident retention, scheduling your marketing efforts or catching up with your residents.
It doesn’t have to be like this, though. You can get on top of your challenges by incorporating property management technology into your business. Efficient property management software helps you stay one step ahead of those curveballs you’ve come to know all too well.
Say Hello to Multifamily Software
Continuing with the turns process example, let’s discover how technology can make this more efficient.
The most efficient apps allow you to schedule work vendors directly from your phone or computer. The vendor confirms on the app when they can show up at the site. And if they can’t make it? You can schedule a backup vendor who’ll be notified if needed.
So, what does all of this mean?
- You’ll have a vendor show up every time
- You won’t have to scramble to find a backup vendor
- You’ll create a flawless move-in process for your new resident
- You’ll have more time to focus on other aspects of your role
Imagine seeing when work orders are complete in real-time through a simple notification. Imagine finding out what else needs doing and which apartments are ready for move-in, all at the touch of a button. Did you feel your stress levels go down?
All this and more is possible when you find the right efficient property management technology.
Save Yourself Time and Money
As you know, the turns process is just one small aspect of your role. But unfortunately, when it becomes complicated and doesn’t go as planned, it can take time away from other important responsibilities, such as improving resident retention, organizing your finances, networking and marketing.
When you break up with your old processes — including that dry-erase board — you can welcome new opportunities for efficient property management. Just imagine:
- Having time to create more meaningful connections with your residents
- Saving money from unexpected costs and loss of residents
- Having time to create and execute an impactful marketing strategy
- Resting easy at the end of the day because everything went smoothly
