3 major signs you need maintenance and trade management services

Monday, May 7, 2018   Property

 

Being a commercial property investor isn’t easy. From advertising your space to planning renovations and checking up on tenants, the job never stops.

So why not take one big aspect off your plate? Maintenance and trade management.

When you work with ACW Property, all your property needs are handled by our team of qualified experts and tradesmen, saving you time and money.

Not convinced you need our services? Here are three signs you might.

1. Tenant requests are piling up

Maintenance requests can pile up quickly and no one wants to be the landlord who misses calls or fails to get back to people.

This is particularly true when you have commercial tenants. In a restaurant, for example, a broken dishwasher is far more pressing than it is at home and it’s up to you to fix it – fast!

To this end, if you feel like you’re consistently falling behind on requests from your tenants, it’s a clear sign you should enlist professional help. With a vetted team of tradespeople on call, you can be sure your property is taken care of quickly and that your tenants are happy.

In commercial properties, repairs are imperative to getting back to business. In commercial properties, repairs are imperative to getting back to business.

2. What does my tenant do again?

You’re an investor, not a hotel owner, nor do you have experience in medicine, fitness or running a cafe.

When you don’t have a clear understanding of the business being run in your space, it’s important to outsource maintenance and repairs to someone who does. By working with ACW Property, you can be sure qualified, experienced tradespeople are visiting your property and working in a way that won’t be disruptive to your tenants or their business. If there are healthy and safety requirements in place, for example, it’s essential to work with tradespeople who will be sensitive to those concerns.

As a property investor, you should always be looking for opportunities to gain wealth and enhance your portfolio.

3. You don’t have time for another property

As a property investor, you should always be looking for opportunities to enhance your portfolio. When you’re bogged down with being a landlord, however, this can become tricky.

If you’re too busy running your current investments to think about buying something new or enhancing your space, it’s time to let someone else do the work. While you might not want to pay for property maintenance services, doing so will actually save you time and money in the long run.
