Maintaining a property's health is a vital element of property management in Michigan.Thus regular maintenance and prompt repairs can be considered as key to good property management.

An experienced and able management company will also have a transparency in all their operations regarding repairs and maintenance. They will keep tenants satisfied by answering their repair calls promptly and scheduling maintenance regularly. At the same time; they will maintain detailed and meticulous records to show the landlords and owners that their money is being spent well.

A software solution can greatly facilitate both these points. Tenants can easily place their request tickets online. Managers can view these from anywhere they are and promptly assign the right contractors to get the job done within a short amount of time. Once the request has been handled and resolved, one can immediately update the system so the owner can also view it on the go.

This system will ensure that no repair requests fall through the cracks. Tenants will not have to go through the tedious process of calling managers to remind him over and over for getting the job done.

Another very important part of maintenance and repair handling is the question of after hours and emergencies. There should be 24/7 service provided by suitable contractors to help resolve issues at all odd hours.

This is key to successful property management.
