For real estate, from rent collection to property maintenance, landlords have had to change how they approach these routine elements of rental property ownership in Fort Lauderdale and across the rest of Broward and Dade County’s. 

Fundamental #1: DIY Maintenance Is Holding You Back

A great deal of effort goes into managing a rental, which includes everything from maintenance to communicating with tenants and marketing the property. Some investors are happy to accept the challenge. It is a process that can be costly in terms of money, time, and effort, and for some the expenses involved in self-managing can far outweigh the benefits. This can be challenging, especially if you have a portfolio of multiple properties, which is why many choose to enlist the aid of property managers. Knowing when to allocate a task is a crucial element of being a successful property owner. At Pristine Property Management, we always recommend that the property owners we serve leave their repairs in the capable hands of licensed, insured, and skilled tradespeople who can get the job done right—and often at a savings to you. This leads to the second fundamental, entrusting this work to others and finding the right contractors for the job.


Fundamental #2: Finding the right Maintenance Professionals for the Job.

When you decide to leave your repairs in the hands of the professionals, it’s time to start building a list of contractors and vendors who check off all the right boxes. At Pristine Property Management, we want our property owners to be confident their rental home is well cared for and secure. A home that is well kept results in quicker rentals and happier tenants.

Fundamental #3: Working with a professional Property Management Company.

In addition to being a reliable source for experienced, high-quality, and trustworthy maintenance service providers, these are other advantages to dealing with a professional property management company. Your property manager handles all aspects of the coordination process by providing tenants access, through customized and professional tenant portals where all maintenance requests can be lodged, therefore removing the landlord from undertaking any hand-on projects. A property management company undertakes these responsibilities therefore allowing the landlord to enjoy all the income benefits of being a landlord without doing all the hard work.
