For property managers, the period between tenants – known as a "turn" – can be a hectic and challenging time. Efficiently managing this process is crucial for minimizing vacancy periods, maintaining property value, and ensuring tenant satisfaction. At Arcadia Property Services, we understand these challenges and offer comprehensive solutions to make your turns smoother and more cost-effective.

Understanding the Importance of Efficient Turns

Rental property turns are more than just a routine task; they're an opportunity to reset and improve your property. A well-executed turn can:

  • Reduce vacancy times

  • Attract higher-quality tenants

  • Justify higher rental rates

  • Prevent long-term maintenance issues

  • Improve overall property value

Common Challenges in Rental Property Turns

Property managers often face several hurdles during the turn process:

1. Time Constraints

Balancing quick turnaround with thorough work is a constant challenge. Every day a property sits vacant is lost income.

2. Unexpected Damages

Hidden issues often surface once a tenant moves out, throwing off schedules and budgets.

3. Coordination of Multiple Contractors

Managing various service providers can be like conducting an orchestra – timing is everything.

4. Budget Management

Keeping costs under control while ensuring quality work is a delicate balance.

Best Practices for Successful Rental Property Turns

To help property managers optimize their turn process, we recommend the following best practices:

1. Conduct Thorough Move-Out Inspections

Identify all necessary repairs and updates before the turn begins to avoid surprises and delays.

2. Prioritize Tasks

Focus on high-impact improvements that will attract tenants and justify higher rents.

3. Implement Preventive Maintenance

Regular upkeep can prevent major issues and reduce the scope of work during turns.

4. Standardize Your Process

Develop a checklist and timeline for turns to ensure consistency and efficiency. If you need help with that, we have plenty we've made and run through 100s of units with.

5. Leverage Technology

Use property management software to track tasks, communicate with vendors, and monitor progress. We've seen a lot of success with people using Appfolio and Buildium.
