Don’t Worry About a Thing: The Benefits of Home Watch and Property Management Services

By | Managing Your Vacation Home, Property Management Tips, Service Info | No Comments

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.

Snow Removal

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.

Bill Pay

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!

Plant Care

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.

Firewood Purchasing and Stacking 

If you will be returning to your Park City property during the colder months, don’t forget to request firewood! Our property management company can purchase and stack your firewood so that it is perfectly ready for a roaring fire upon your arrival.

Property Management and Winter Storms: How to Protect Your Investment

By | Property Management Tips, Service Info | No Comments

January and February in Park City can bring the toughest winter storms in Utah. If you own a vacation home or another property requiring attention during your absence, the occurrence of a winter storm can cause stress and worry. You may be thousands of miles away, wondering if the storm has caused water damage or a leaky roof. How can you best protect your investment when you are miles away? Hiring an effective property management company is the best answer. Here are some ways in which a property manager can help you survive winter storm stress.

1.  Property management companies watch the forecasts

From small showers to blinding blizzards, a good property management company is aware of any potential winter weather coming to the Park City area that may affect your property. They will take appropriate steps to ensure that your property is as protected as possible.

2. They are proactive

St. John’s Property Management will do a full inspection of the property, identifying any potential areas of concern, before a severe storm. They will rectify any trouble areas before the bad weather occurs to minimize any potential damage.

3. They are reactive

Property management companies should also be on-site, inspecting your property as soon as it is safe to do so. It is important that companies go to your property soon after a winter storm in case of water or wind damages.

4. They communicate

St. John’s Property Management communicates with you before and after severe weather. At your request, your property manager should contact you to discuss the details of any preventative maintenance that your property received before a severe winter storm hits the area. After the storm, you should receive further information that your property emerged from the storm unscathed or suffered damage.

Your property management company should provide these services no matter the size of your property, how often you visit, or how far away you reside. St. John’s Property Management shows you that they care through constant communication and action during worrisome winter storms.
