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.
