Residential Work Orders & Maintenance Repairs

Residential Work Orders and Maintenance Repairs

Owning rental properties can be a full-time job. The more residential rental properties you own, the larger and more time-consuming the job becomes. Whether you own multiple individual rental properties or one large multi-dwelling property, like an apartment complex or mobile home rental community, you will find that there may not be enough hours in the day to get all the work you need to do done with all the residential work orders, maintenance, and repairs that need to be completed for your tenants.

If you are based in Tampa, FL, or the surrounding areas, the team at Strategic Properties Group can help you make the most out of your investment through timely maintenance practices.

Types of Residential Work Orders & Maintenance Repairs

Once you make an investment in residential rental properties, it doesn’t take long to understand the importance of staying on top of things like routine maintenance and small repairs. Failing to do so can quickly cause escalations into larger, costlier repair projects. Even worse, it can lead to highly dissatisfied tenants.

After all, you need them as much as they need you. Keeping your tenants happy creates less chaos, fewer turnovers, and longer-term renters for you. Empty rentals generate expenses without income. That’s not what anyone envisions when investing in residential rental properties.

With that in mind, there are essentially three types of maintenance property owners need to manage.

Preventative maintenance

Inspecting, cleaning, and replacing various parts before problems arise.

Condition-based maintenance

Includes things like changing HVAC filters or tuning up furnaces and water heaters based on the season or certain dates.

Corrective maintenance

Maintenance that addresses specific problems or issues, such as repairing dishwashers, replacing heating elements, correcting leaking faucets, etc.

Keeping your properties maintained helps to maintain and even improve the value of the property, improves the curb appeal of the property, and helps you identify potential problems for corrective action before long-term damage occurs. In other words, good maintenance practices can save you large sums of money in the long term.

What Are Residential Work Orders?

Much like a commercial work order for maintenance and repairs, a residential work order involves a three-part process. At least, that’s how it works when you use Strategic Properties Group to manage your residential properties and generate work orders on your behalf.

Step 1. Create a work order

This essentially means that we generate a ticket identifying the issue at hand, the work that needs to be done, and the resources necessary to complete the task. Then we assign this work order to a specific technician.

Step 2. Perform the task

The technician then completes the work, providing an updated notice about the completion of the task and including any notes about the work performed and future work that may be required.

Step 3. Closing the ticket

Once we receive notification that the work is complete and of any further concerns or new required actions, the ticket is closed and added to the permanent record. This record provides evidence of the work completed as well as relevant dates where specific maintenance issues, preventative, corrective, or conditional, are addressed.

The information stored within the work orders can be used to determine the overall soundness of your property over time and serve as a record of your building’s maintenance history should you ever decide to sell your property.
