The Vail Valley is no stranger to private residence property management, primarily because there are so many private homes that are only part-time residences for their owners. If you own a private home in or around Vail, and you aren’t using a property management company, you’ve come to the right place.
Take a look at three reasons you should be considering private residence property management:
Reason #1: Property Oversight
Many people rent out their vacation homes when they’re not using them, which is a great way to make extra income, but also a way to be sure someone sees the property on a regular basis. If you’re not using your home as a rental, it’s critical to make sure it’s got eyes on it regularly to make sure it’s safe, secure, and well-maintained.
When you can’t see it, make sure someone else can. A property manager is just that person. They can make sure the temperatures are set correctly to protect the home’s interiors and to prevent frozen pipes. Managers can check for damage and schedule repairs promptly. They will make sure there’s no evidence of trespassers, ensure housekeeping services takes proper care with the interior, and lawn and landscaping crews and maintenance companies are performing their services at the highest level.
Reason #2: Manage Maintenance and Upkeep
Need to schedule snow removal? Your management company can do that for you. Have a special project that needs completion? Property management teams can manage and oversee any work. Need maid service before you or your guests arrive? Just give the word and they can get it done.
Working with a property management company allows you to feel comfortable with the care and upkeep of your property, even if you spend most of your time in another city, state, or country. This includes everything: regular lawn and garden care, housekeeping, painting, repair projects, carpet cleaning, and other maintenance.
Reason #3: Reduce Stress
Anyone who owns a home in a ski town knows that it’s an investment, and any investment has risk. When it’s a residential property that you’ve invested in, it’s more than just financial. It’s a home that you and your family, your friends and even your business associates will use and enjoy. You want it taken care of, and that can be stressful, especially if your primary residence is across the country.
Having a reliable property manager can take the stress out of taking care of your mountain home. You don’t want the hassles of trying to supervise home management when you’re not there, nor do you need the stress. Let someone else oversee your investment, and you can focus on enjoying it when you’re there.
Whether you use your vacation home as a rental property or exclusively for you and your family to enjoy at your leisure, there’s one way to ensure it’s in good hands when you aren’t there. Contact our expert team at Fireside Properties today to find out more.
