When turning your home into a rental or buying an investment property, maintenance must be a critical element of your plan for long-term success. However, many real estate investors find it difficult to juggle full-time jobs while managing a property and fixing repair problems themselves or coordinating multiple contractors.

Hiring a Kitsap County property management company means investors benefit from professional maintenance staff, but what are those benefits? If you're pretty good at fixing things or you have a trusted handyman, that's a good thing. However, you could be missing out on better pricing, higher-quality repairs, and happier residents.

Delivering quality maintenance services is one of the most critical aspects of maximizing income from your Kitsap County rentals! Here's why you need professional maintenance staff to generate more long-term income and improve resident renewals. 

Plumber at work

We're Always On Call

Most real estate investors like to sleep through the night and spend evenings and weekends doing things they enjoy. When you own rental properties on your own, a good night's sleep and free time can be hard to find. 

Middle-of-the-night panicked phone calls from renters reporting a maintenance emergency are part of the job when managing Kitsap County rental homes. If you're not available to take the call and coordinate the repair, renters get frustrated. In some cases, they could be stuck in your rental home in unsafe conditions while they wait for you to return a call or schedule a repair. 

Quality renters look for rental homes with responsive property managers. They feel safe when they know they can get a prompt response—day or night—when something goes wrong in their rental home. Renters also appreciate prompt repairs (the first time) without the inconvenience of repeated repair attempts for the same ongoing issue. 

The right Kitsap County property management company is available 24/7 to handle maintenance emergencies and care for renters. Real estate investors can sleep through the night without worrying about their rentals or dealing with those late-night wake-up calls about a problem. A property manager takes those calls and coordinates repairs that keep residents safe and happy.

We Have Economies of Scale

With an emergency repair, there isn't always time to get multiple job estimates and compare contractors and pricing. Even with routine maintenance or repairs that aren't emergencies, it's challenging to find the best pricing with the best quality of work and know you're not being taken advantage of. 

Your property manager always gets the best pricing, never sacrifices quality, and doesn't have to waste time negotiating with contractors. We know what repairs and materials should cost in the Kitsap County market. Plus, the volume of maintenance work we offer to quality contractors helps us reduce costs for investors and maximize maintenance budgets.
