The way in which we approach this is to offer and design a specific management package to you the owner, the property itself, and how you intend to use the property.
If you are a Homeowner that uses your property for Holidays and for Friends/Family, your outlook and services required will be entirely different to that of a professional renter that views the property as a business and requires it to be treated as such. However you intend to use your property, your approach, outlook and attitude to your property is unique, therefore your property management company should be working to the same goals. Here at Lifestyle we take all of this into account, we treat each owner as an individual and work together to best plan and implement the required approach.
Services – The better the management company, the more the services that will be offered. Before choosing a property management company, take time to investigate which services they perform, and what you are actually paying your management fee for. All too often Owners join a management company unaware of the hidden extras. Transparency here, and with the services that the management company can perform are key.
Property consultations and suggestions for improvements – Your property needs constant supervision, and care. The management company should be in constant contact, advising of issues or offering suggestions as to maintain or improve the standards of the property in order to give the best property experience possible. Do not just let the management company sit back and relax. Ask for property consultations or improvements suggestions. If the property management company cannot do this, then they are not the right ones for you.
Package services – Beware a “one size fits all” or “packaged” service. You, your property and your property use are all unique. A generic package that is offered will not necessarily suit your needs. Look for a property management company that will offer a tailored service, and design your management package around your needs and that of how you intend to use your property. By gaining this bespoke service, you will always be happy with the results, as you are fully aware of what is being managed.
