Managing a property can become a full-time job. It has the potential to become very overwhelming at times. Holidays, trips away and weekends off as a landlord are entirely possible if you take advantage of a residential management company for your business.
Taking away the daily stresses
Being a landlord can be an extremely rewarding and enjoyable experience, but with that comes a lot of responsibility and sometimes a lot of stress. This occupation can be highly demanding, and with it being a people-facing job, there are often common and unavoidable issues that you simply have no control over. Facing so many issues on a daily basis such as advertising an empty property, responding to a tenant’s email or catching up on missing rent can suddenly seem overwhelming when the idea of a holiday is on the table.
Rental management companies such as Keey are here to swoop in and relieve some of that weight, leaving you with the time and autonomy to get on with enjoying the freedom of a much-needed vacation.
Keeping things ticking over in your absence and saving you time
Vacationing as a landlord can bring up a lot of questions and ultimately, a lot of anxieties. What if one of my tenants has a problem? What if the heating stops working in one of my properties? What am I supposed to do if someone wants to start renting with me whilst I’m away? These are all things that can be taken care of by your residential management company, which can keep daily business ticking over whilst you’re away, ensuring that everything is running smoothly, and any problems are swiftly and professionally dealt with. It’s a seamless transition so that your tenants won’t be affected, and should they need anything there will be a friendly point of contact for them to call whenever they need.
What is included in property management services?
You may be asking yourself what the difference is between using a residential management company and simply using a friend or relative as a temporary fill-in during your time away?
Here are just some of the property management services you can expect from us if you choose Keey as your rental management company:
- Manage reservations and check-ins – while you’re on holiday, our friendly and professional team can manage any reservations and check-ins, as well as any other people facing jobs.
- Maintenance – we can keep up end-to-end maintenance of your properties. Whether you have just the one or a full property portfolio, we can make sure everything is kept in working order. On-call specialists are always at the ready!
- Acting as a point of contact – both for you and your tenants, we can make sure any communication is handled so nothing is missed (and help to keep your inbox empty so there are no dreaded “unread messages” to scroll through on your return.)
Unlike taking the risk in giving your tenants an emergency number to call while you are away, or not taking any time out of your busy work schedule to go on vacation at all, your property management company will handle all communications with your guest or tenant.
Companies like Keey will deal with all issues and queries, giving you more time to pack that suitcase ready for your trip. If a residential management service is something you feel your landlord business would benefit from, feel free to get in touch with us today.
