Cold Weather Coming – Property Management is Necessary

With freezing weather coming to many areas soon – vacant properties NEED a property manager.

This is the perfect time to pitch property management services to an audience that needs your help to avoid costly water damage.  After costly damage had happened I visited several vacant properties last year  that suffered water damage from frozen pipes.  One of the properties was a newly constructed townhouse that was vacant – although neighboring units were occupied and heated.  There were water pipes in the attic that froze as a result of a developer leaving the heat off on an unsold unit.  Another property was vacated – in the foreclosure process – and there was no heat.

These costly problems could have been avoided by having a property manager manage those vacant units.

As part of this program, I include a vacant home checklist – to help you in your role as property manager prevent such costly problems from occurring to your clients.  Use the checklist on your sales call to sign up a few new clients before the cold weather sets in.  Good Luck!
