The summer season in Arizona, brings several challenges for real estate property management and property owners. At Arête Realty and Property Management, LLC in Phoenix, we use only the most reputable vendors for your property. Here are some of the challenges that homeowners typically face and how Arête Realty overcomes these obstacles.
We use only the most trustworthy, honest and competitively priced vendors for your maintenance needs. Vendors, especially HVAC vendors, typically start to get extremely busy during the summer season in Arizona. Our real estate property management experts have compiled a list of preferred vendors for every service imaginable, including pest control, pool service, HVAC, gardening, and plumbing.
Most vendors are busy during the summer months, so it is important to have patience and be flexible with our preferred vendors. They work as hard as they can to accommodate your schedule when on service calls. Our vendors are knowledgeable, price-conscious and responsive. Remember: most vendors will charge a “trip fee” for coming out to your property. In most cases, owners can make repair charge payments on their next rent payment cycle.
Should you have a list of preferred vendors, Arête Realty and Property Management, LLC is happy to add them to your file. We strive to accommodate any and all preferences for your professional property management.
Air conditioning units, appliances and other items inevitably seem to break during the summer months in Arizona. Tenants without air conditioning in the 110+ degree heat of Phoenix will not be happy tenants. It is imperative that home and property owners set aside five to ten percent of their monthly rent as an emergency fund for maintenance and repairs. Keep in mind that carpets typically last anywhere from five to seven years while HVAC systems usually last from 15-20 years, though the Arizona heat can wear them down much faster. Be prepared for water heater replacements, interior and exterior painting and HVAC repairs.
