The Value of Professional Property Management During the COVID-19 Pandemic

covid 19 pandemic

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, most industries are forced to adapt to a variety of changes. The property management industry is no exception. New strategies and protocols have been put into place to ensure the safety of both property owners and tenants.

If you’re a self-managing property owner, you may find this challenging time to be extra stressful. Aside from the normal property upkeep, you now have to adhere to new protocols and guidelines to ensure everyone’s protection.

Working with a property management company like Sterling Property Solutions can significantly reduce your stress. Our many resources and qualified team can efficiently attend to your tenants’ property needs. We will try to remove all possible stress for you by helping you manage your properties. You won’t need to come into close contact with your tenants. We have the right supplies to stay protected and will represent you in all aspects of your rental business.

Whether you have properties in Mamaroneck, New Rochelle, Yonkers, or elsewhere, we can help you during this challenging time.

Reasons you Should Work with Us:

1. We Have Solid Knowledge Concerning State Laws, Evictions, Landlord-Tenant Laws and more.

Generally, laws are always subject to change. And, right now with COVID-19, it’s important to follow the new guidelines to avoid negative consequences.

As a member of NARPM and other associations, we are quickly updated with new laws. This gives us ample time to adjust and follow the new policies. We’re also very experienced and can implement procedures easily.

2. We Will Manage your Daily Tasks and Responsibilities

We are a team of professionals who are skilled and knowledgeable in various areas of the industry. As a team, we have more resources than you might as a self-managing landlord.

This is helpful during this COVID-19 pandemic because it means that we will all work together to ensure that your properties and your tenants are still getting the attention they need during this difficult time.

As a self-managing property owner, it’ll be challenging if you must self-quarantine for 14 days or fall ill during this time because you won’t have anyone to take care of your responsibilities. Also, your daily tasks will continue to pile up, and nobody will be there to help you with them.

By working with our property management company, we will be there to ensure your properties continue to run smoothly.

3. We Follow Safety Protocols

With COVID-19, protection and safety are priorities. Our professional team will make sure that sanitary practices are exercised. We will wear the appropriate gear and take proper precautions while attending to property maintenance and repair jobs. You can also be sure that supplies, such as masks and sanitizers, will be available in our property management firm.

As a self-managing property owner, you would have to secure your own supplies and remind yourself to follow the important protocols. Not to mention, you would need to reach available contractors to perform additional tasks in the property, such as disinfecting common areas. Otherwise, you would be required to take on that responsibility yourself. So, you can reduce your stress and your risk of COVID-19 by working with us.

4. We’ll Fix Minor Repairs

In a time like this, you don’t want to be interacting with tenants in person. The more you physically distance yourself from tenants, the less chance you have of being exposed to the virus. That said, if your tenant were to contact you about a minor damage, you would have to go repair it.

However, by hiring a property management firm, you are spared from the additional stress and risk as we would take care of property repairs.

5. We Will Handle all Face-to-Face Interaction with Tenants

As a property owner, many of your duties require contact with tenants such as conducting move in and move out inspections. However, by being so close to tenants, you can risk your health.

By working with us, we will conduct the required duties and handle all the work for you. You will be able to stay home and stay safe without any worries or stress.

Bottom Line

These uncertain times require much flexibility. We must adapt to safety measures and follow new guidelines. As a self-managing property owner, it is your responsibility to deliver superior customer service, especially during challenging times like these. But that’s not easy, and that’s why we want to help.

With a professional property management team behind you, your duties will be met without the additional stress or increased exposure to the COVID-19 virus. By working with Sterling Property Solutions and our reliable team, you can except excellent standards and professional services that won’t disappoint.
