Hello everyone, let’s talk about what happens during our periodic drive by inspections, what are we looking for and then how do we report that back to you.
“I’m looking to make sure the home is in good condition on the outside.”
First thing – I’m looking to see what condition the roof and gutters are in. Are there any gutters hanging off of the house or any damaged gutters. Is the roof needing a serious cleaning/ mowing. I’m looking to make sure the home is in good condition on the outside.
Other Items I am checking for is the height of the grass. Are the tenants maintaining it as discussed in the Lease. Is there any garbage or excess debris in the yard that was not there when we turned the home over to them. If there is the tenants will be notified immediately by email and if necessary we will call them. You will also be notified on your owners report which you can access any time through the Smart Pad Portal.
“You will also be notified on your owners report which you can access any time through the Smart Pad Portal.”
The next thing I look at is how many cars are in the driveway. If I know there are 2 people living in the home but there are 10 cars in the driveway and on the street I will be contacting them immediately to get the place cleaned up. We will also alert you so you know what is going on and that we are taking the necessary steps to get everything taken care of.
If you ever have any questions about what is going on during the quarterly drive by inspections just log into the Smart Pad Portal. Should you have any questions about the Drive By Inspections please feel free to call us. We are here for all your property management needs!
