As a property manager, you already know your day-to-day work life can be hectic and stressful. Time seems to fly by, and at the end of the day, you haven’t gotten anything done. Sound familiar? The never ending list can mean tons of added stress.
But we can help. We’re sharing our favorite time-saving tips that will make your life easier.
Focus on one resident at a time.
Resident interruptions are a major part of the job for any property manager. But how can you be expected to handle one resident’s issues if another one keeps disrupting the process? Instead of multi-tasking, try to focus on one problem at a time. This will save you time in the long run.
Unless it’s an emergency, tell the second resident you’ll get back to them or let them leave a message. Take care of the first resident’s issue, then go on to the next one. We promise this will add some more order!
Limit re-occuring calls.
Some residents can be very persistent in calling or stopping by the property manager’s office over and over. These interruptions can really drain your energy and time. To keep this from happening, set up an informal system with the resident in the event they continue to have issues. The system may involve not calling or coming to the office more than once a day, for instance.
Take advantage of time-saving technology.
Technology can save you time by automating many of your daily tasks. Imagine if dealing with the water system could be taken care of just by touching a few buttons. Or monitoring it meant merely looking at your computer screen. Technology can make these time-saving tricks a reality.
