Turn On Your Turn Process: Make-Ready Turnover Checklists, Spreadsheets and Software

It’s time to turn on your turn process. ‘Tis the season for residents moving out and moving on from one of your many unit rentals. Cue the make-ready boards, spreadsheets, and manual checklists to oversee all the moving parts.

“Who was in charge of purchasing the dry erase markers again?”

“Sh*t! We’re out of paper. Grab that make-ready board.”

We’ve heard (and seen!) it all before. We want to make this easy for you — that’s why we created three significant opportunities for you to streamline your turnover process. We will let you decide which one works best for you!

1. Extensive Printable Turnover Checklist

Your free, printable, make-ready turnover checklist helps you manually keep track of the maintenance tasks that need to be completed before your next resident moves in. Get to printing!

3. Web-based Turnover Software Solution

Are you ready for something better than a daunting checklist or spreadsheet? Ditch the make-ready boards, save paper, and dump the spreadsheets. An efficient turnover time for each unit while minimizing costs may seem unrealistic when you’re managing an extensive portfolio of units. In addition to intelligent maintenance coordination, you can shift your turnover process into a web-based solution and place your company ahead of the market. What if you are already using property management software? Project transparency can be difficult without highly specialized features within these platforms. At Property Meld, our dedicated Projects feature will help you save time and optimize your make-readies:

  1. Efficiency — Easily coordinate maintenance responsibilities among your internal staff and assign vendors to work orders that need attention. You get a work order, and you get a work order!
  2. Improved Oversight — Receive insights to top-of-the-line reporting and gain transparency to your maintenance process. Track each maintenance task from work order submission to completion.
  3. Real-Time Communication — Review real-time communication between your internal staff and vendors to ensure repairs and turnover requests are completed promptly. Keep each staff member and vendor accountable for their work order.

Are you interested in taking out the guesswork of your turnover process and streamlining the work orders with a web-based platform? It takes a team to tackle turns, and our Projects feature can help! Request a demo and one of our maintenance rockstars will arrange a customized demonstration of Property Meld. See how we can help maximize efficiency and decrease the cost of turns.
