Mother Nature’s icy grip is fading and spring brings a host of vacant property maintenance issues. Thank goodness we made it through one of the coldest and longest winters on record. As we venture outside from hibernation we are refreshed by the warm breezes, the sun on our face and have just the faintest memories of Everest-sized parking lot mountains of dirty snow. We made it through, but did our vacant or partially occupied for sale or for lease properties?
How can you check all the properties in your portfolio if they are in distant locations and as brokers, should you be taking on that responsibility?
Commercial Asset Preservation recommends a spring inspection and evaluation of the following items:
Maintaining both the working systems and the outward appearance of your building will not only deter vandals, but keep you in good graces of city inspectors. And, prospects for sale or lease will be more plentiful if the property is well maintained. With all of this work done, you can now enjoy your spring!
