A community’s visual appeal depends mostly on the maintenance and upkeep of each resident property it contains. A management company can help enforce these maintenance aspects, but ultimately each property is responsible. This can be maintained easily by paying attention to a few particular areas.
1. The Roof
Starting from the top, it’s important to insure roofs are regularly cleaned and otherwise maintained. It may be easy to count them as an oversight, but their upkeep is important.
2. Downspouts and Gutters
To prevent any flooding or overflow, be sure these stay cleaned.
3. Awnings, Fixtures, and Decks
Be sure to check window boxes for stability and keep fixtures painted regularly, at least twice a year.
4. Other Exterior Painting
Protect property from weathering, correction, and other outside forces with paint while also keeping it looking clean, new, and fresh.
Since it’s often noticed first, keeping the landscape looking good is a big deal. Care take to remove any dead plants, leaves, or grass clippings, and prune flowers and shrubs.
6. Sidewalks and Driveways
Keep these clear from any debris or weeds, repair any problems with concrete such as cracks or pitting, and don’t leave extra storage or car parts lying in the driveway.
Following these few maintenance guidelines can help keep a property looking fresh and appealing while keeping you ahead of the game, especially if routine property inspections are done in the community.
