Having an additional property for vacations or rental purposes is exciting. Whether you own additional real estate for extra income or a quiet getaway, the most common worry among owners is what may happen while they are not around. The same is true for homeowners who go on vacation. There’s a constant, nagging worry in the back of your head about the many little things that need to be taken care of. Hiring a professional home watch company will alleviate the stress of wondering about your investment in your absence. Here are five ways that a home watch company like St. John’s Property Management reduces your worry.
Beautiful, beautiful snow in Park City is also a big pain for properties and homes. Property management companies can plow and remove snow to ensure that your property remains beautiful and water-damage free. In addition to snow removal, home watch companies will ensure that the snow has not caused any interior damages, such as leaks or basement flooding.
Mail and Package Pickup
A common way that people know when a house is unoccupied is when newspapers, mail, and packages stack up. There has also been a significant increase in package theft over the past few years as online ordering has continued to increase in popularity. While it’s a good idea to schedule these deliveries when someone is home, it isn’t always possible. Rely on a property management company to take care of these tasks, ensuring that your mail and packages are secure.
If you will be away from your property for several weeks, you can reduce your stresses further by allowing a property management company to pay some of your standard bills, such as water, electricity, and cable services. This is a great idea, especially if you will be out of the country or enjoying a vacation away from the area. A property management company can take care of those minor details for you!
Plants are easily forgotten. However, during the winter months, they require special care. St. John’s Property Management helps with winter plant care. We will water and care for interior and exterior plants, or, if more specialized care is needed, we will communicate with a landscaping company to ensure your plants are protected throughout the winter.
