PORTLAND, Ore – One of the biggest “secrets” to owning a multi-family Portland Rental Property is that you have to keep your tenants happy or else risk having more vacancies during the year and this will affect your bottom line.
In this article we will share with you 3 tips you can use to run your property management business more efficiently.
Tip #1 – Make Trash Pickup a Priority
Let’s face it, nobody likes to see trash lying around, especially at their home, this is why you have to make trash pickup a priority at your multi-family rental property.
For best results with trash pickup you should have trash picked up at least once a week and for larger items you should have a monthly dump run where you can hire someone to pick up larger items that your tenants leave in the dumpster area and run those items to the dump
Tip #2 – Keep Those Common Areas Spotless
Yes, your tenants are responsible for keeping their rental units spotless but you should also make the effort to keep the common areas of your multi-family rental property in Portland spotless as well.
The areas you should keep clean include: hallways, laundry areas, pool area, outdoor space and parking areas.
Tip #3 – Make a Commitment to a Pest Free Building
Last of all, but most important, you should make a commitment to keeping your Portland Oregon Rental Property pest free.
Schedule an exterminator to come out and spray around your rental property each month plus and communicate with tenants regularly to make sure that their properties are pest free or they will need to be sprayed as well.
