The property survey program allows an owner to actually see the condition of the property on an annual or semi-annual basis.
Owners may choose one of two programs. The first option is a semiannual survey that is usually conducted during the 90 day or third month of a new tenants taking occupancy of the property. This survey includes 60-70 photos of the property both inside and out of the property. By conducting the first survey at the 90 day or third month of the tenant’s occupancy of the property, the tenant has had a chance to unpack all the boxes, and get settled into their normal routine. We can usually get a pretty good snapshot of the tenant is taking care of your property. The second survey offered in this package is conducted close to the 9th month of the tenant’s occupancy. This report, provides you with good insight when our offices notifies you of the upcoming lease expiration. You and our office can make a much more informed decision regarding the option of your tenant renewing the lease. We believe you will find the quality of the property surveys a real value in making a more educated decision when deciding to renewing the tenant or being proactive on any short or long term maintenance issues.
Option One: provides two surveys per year, the first will be conducted approximately the third and ninth month of the tenants occupancy. Option one is $99.
Option Two: is an annual survey that is conducted in the 9th month of a tenant’s occupancy. You will receive the survey report including 60-70 photo’s. Option two is $79 for each survey.
Our office recommends owners with new tenants choose Option one during the first year of a tenants occupancy. Once the tenant has been “established” as a good tenant that is maintaining the property, renew the tenant and transition to an annual survey that will be conducted during the 9th month of the tenants second year as a tenant.
An additional benefit to either program you choose is that our staff can in a more proactive manner find small or minor maintenance issues and address them before they create additional damage and cost. Examples of this would be caulking around bathtub and showers to prevent major water penetration, or repairing a loose fence post before a strong wind damages an entire section of fencing.
