Here is exactly how Sagareus reduces Maintenance Costs for our clients.
We've developed a comprehensive Preventative Maintenance Checklist to be completed at each turn over. This checklist reduces maintenance calls during tenancy; Landlords are very concerned with reducing vacancy time, however, taking a few extra hours to perform the standard preventative checklist has proven to reduce costs and vacancy loss. We've learned over the years some of the most common calls we get, so we've built our turn over checklist to prevent them before the tenant moves in.
For every property 2+ unit property, Sagareus schedules our recurring Common Area Maintenance Program. Maintenance is onsite 2-4x per month to attend to common area maintenance including hallways/breezeways, parking lot, laundry room, landscaping and surrounding sidewalks. This allows management staff to schedule Resident Maintenance calls during these routine upkeep appointments, all reducing cost to owner.
The truth is maintenance emergencies are relatively rare. Most calls can wait a few days when maintenance is already on site or nearby, this reduces cost to the maintenance company and these savings are passed on to the building owner.
Here is a breakdown of our Regular Property Upkeep:
Sagareus documents a monthly property inspection of all common areas to check for any impending issues, such as over growing trees/limbs, damaged downspouts/gutters, clogged drains, unsightly tenant belongings in parking or on patios, etc.
Finally, an annual all unit inspection is documented. Management is checking all resident homes for safety issues (Smoke, CO2 detectors, and heater function), leaks or loose fixtures, and general cleanliness of property.
Emergencies are expensive and 90% of emergencies can be prevented through regular inspections and upkeep.
