The Importance of Responding to Maintenance Requests Quickly

rawpixel-com-378009 (1)

Essential to any business is communicating with the clients and property management makes no exception. It's up to you as a principal to ensure all members of your team can communicate with the clients effectively and solve their problems such as maintenance requests quickly.

When property managers are confronted with a problem, both landlords and tenants expect a quick solution, and for a busy manager, that can be quite the challenge. Thankfully, there are property maintenance software solutions to help get the job completed.

 

Being quick to respond

Property managers should always answer promptly in the case of emergencies.  This includes but is not limited to gas leaks, plumbing issues, or heating system malfunctions. Even if clients are dealing with problems that don’t qualify as emergencies, it should still be a high priority to solve these problems as quickly as possible. Small maintenance repairs can turn into larger issues, so getting them actioned as soon as they are detected is the right thing to do.

 

Keeping your residents happy

Whether you are responding to a rent-related question, to a property maintenance issue, or just communicating with your residents, you are showing them that you care about their well-being. Because you are helping them solve their problems, they are more likely to treat the property with respect. Residents who like a property and who are happy with the property manager’s services are more likely to rent long-term and to recommend your business to their friends.

Basically, communicating with your clients is not only good for the property but for your business as well as it can bring more clients.
