Move-out Inspections: Technology Ensures Accurate Records

By Operations Team, Summerfield Managment

Paperwork is a boring subject… until not having the right documentation costs you $.

Although the cost of turning over a unit only comes into play once a Tenant moves out, your Property Management company’s work to ensure a Tenant’s deposit goes towards paying for excessive damage starts when the Tenant moves IN.

Move-IN inspections are just as important as move-out inspections. In fact, your move-out inspection is only as good as your signed move-in inspection.
Summerfield uses a platform called HappyCo to document move-in/out inspections with photos to reduce owner liability, drive down turnover costs, and raise NOI.

HappyCo makes it easy to document damages and charge the cost against a Tenant’s security deposit.

Sure, accurate and thorough documentation takes more work, but keeping an Asset Manger’s goal to maximize ROI top-of-mind is just one way Summerfield gives our clients a better Property Management experience.

When you’re ready to consider working with a different Property Management company, call us and let’s get started. Convenient online booking is also available below.
