Maximize Your Current Staff with Property Management Maintenance Software
Things are heating up in the housing market. People are talking about it, and it’s not a secret. According to Realtor.com, home sales are going up and mortgage rates are on the move.* But there is another hot topic that we can’t seem to sit back and watch go up in flames. As a business leader, you may be feeling the burn. The nationwide labor shortage is causing a headache for many industries, including property management, as the world reopens post-pandemic.
According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, “The number of workers quitting their jobs reached an all-time high of 2.7%, while layoffs and discharges reached an all-time low of 1%, another indication of the tightness of the labor market.” Can you imagine your most critical internal staff member quitting, especially during rental property turnover season? If this nightmare has been a reality, what are you doing to cover the gaps? The ultimate task of hiring and training new employees (if you even find a qualified applicant in this market!) can be costly and time-consuming. Not to mention, the average salary for a property manager is $101,593, and a maintenance coordinator at $38,538.** But let’s get to the point.
Before you push the dreadful “Now Hiring” post across all social media channels… Imagine maximizing your current staff by streamlining maintenance requests and make-readies through an automated maintenance solution. Tackle the work orders and high rental turnovers with technology!
