When you are the owner of residential or commercial investment properties your main goal is to keep it, or them, occupied for as long a period of time as you can, if not the mortgage is paid out of your pocket and that completely does away with the concept of investment properties and positive cash flow.
One of the best ways to do this is to make your Staten Island property attractive and appealing to prospective and current renters alike in order to make them want to be there and sign as long of a lease as they can.
Of course you will want to keep it clean and in good shape, as a messy and unkempt rental is undesirable to a person who intends to spend their hard earned money on monthly rent, and a dirty, uncared for place tends to make a person feel very unsure.
This requires someone to take care of all aspects of cleaning, such as carpet cleaning, painting, repairs and upgrades and anything else that will appeal to your prospective and current tenants. By offering them a place that is as cleanly and cared for as one you yourself might live in it will show well and the pride you take will come across to all of your occupants.
One of the other "benefits" you could provide, and what is actually quite an important thing to do for the safety of every tenant would be to have a Staten Island locksmith come to your property each time someone moves out and assess the locks and their current shape, the hardware, door frame and jam, windows and all other access areas for durability and strength, and also be sure to rekey all of the locks in case previous tenants have made copies, allowing them to still have a way in even though they no longer occupy the unit or home.
There is a great responsibility in being a property owner because you are bringing people in to your place and their safety is something that must be a prime motivator for every owner. Nothing could be as bad as feigning a secure property only to have theft, or worse, violence occur due to those locks or keys being left in bad shape or still using the same key that someone else has in their possession.
By utilizing the services of a Staten Island locksmith you will be able to not only keep better care of your investment, but also keep it and the renter(s) safe and out of harms way, as well as avoiding what can result in large amounts of damage.
Creating a good working relationship with a locksmith is good business no matter how you look at it in the world of real estate and the more property you have and the more you can offer to people the more your building will be in demand.
Remember that locks and keys, like anything else can become damaged or worn with use and age and your residential locks and commercial access control systems must be maintained at all costs for every party involved!
