Many property owners might consider the fall and spring seasons a time to relax from property management responsibilities. The mild weather brought on by pleasant seasonal shifts can be deceptive. Fall and spring, like all seasons, can bring with them severe weather that could affect the actual and perceived value of your real estate investments. This may be fairly obvious, of course, but even without the risk of severe weather, the autumn months can be very beneficial to your overall property management plan. Here are a few autumn-inspired property management tips:
Address leaves in gutters and drains/sewers to prevent water damage
Address leaves on sidewalks and in parking lots to avoid slipping hazards
Check window condition and insulation preparation for colder weather
Check roofing condition in preparation for seasonal rain or snow
Prepare for freezing weather, especially dangerous sidewalk conditions resulting from snow or ice
Regardless of weather or seasonal climate, successful property management is the art of planning ahead. Consistency in property management is key to protecting real estate investments.
