Property management refers to the practice of performing upkeep, management, and maintenance of properties of all kinds, including residential, commercial, and rural real estate. The field involves not just the physical maintenance of properties, but also the soft management of tenants, rental collection, property inspections, and more. Property owners often cannot handle the full load of tasks that come with managing a site by themselves, so they will typically hire specialized companies to carry out the day-to-day operations and oversee all possible issues.
Property managers have to juggle many tasks in order to keep their sites properly maintained and secured. The difficulty of keeping track of every issue can sometimes lead to blind spots in security or maintenance that can create real problems down the road. For example, lack of investment in or improper monitoring of security equipment such as surveillance cameras or monitored entrance gates can create spots of opportunity for bad actors to enter and cause damage. Properties that are vacant, under construction, or in remote areas are particularly vulnerable to issues such as trespassing, vandalism, and material and equipment theft.
Maintenance schedules can represent another challenge. With the myriad different types of equipment that can be present on any given site, it can be easy to overlook a recommended servicing, or not notice when a nonessential piece of equipment has broken down. This can lead to more expensive repairs being needed down the road, running the risk of an interruption of services to tenants. Even when equipment pieces have alert systems to notify when something goes wrong, it is easy to miss a single notification within separate, scattershot monitoring systems.
