The hot summer season is here! When the temperatures heat up, everyone notices that their utility bills slowly begin to rise as well, but don’t worry there’s still time for you to save on utility bills this summer. 


You may have heard that installing drapes or blinds on windows will help cut down on the heat that flows into a home, which is true. However some people enjoy the window views they have so a great option to do both are window films. Many are designed for an easy install, just measure, cut and stick it on.


Regardless of what kind of heating and cooling unit your property has, cleaning the air filters on a regular basis is important, especially before the hot summer months. When filters get dirty, the heating and cooling system has to work harder and consume more energy to do its job. With clean filters the system can cool the home more efficiently and help save on utility bills.


Programmable thermostats allows you to set different temperatures for various times throughout  the day and cut back on energy used by the air conditioner and therefore save on utility bills

Home Inspections for Rental Units

When you sign a lease to rent a home there is always a clause for semi or quarterly inspections. When it comes time to inspect there is always trepidation for the tenant or Property Manager. As a property manager you are always on the alert for a disaster, as the tenant your first thought is no way. What we have found is it is an excellent time to view the property and have frank and honest conversations with tenants. Once you are there it allows for visual and mental notes to be taken,items that need addressing and knowing if the relationship is going forward. As tenant it is a great time to talk about the residence, point out problems, and give the property manager an idea of how the home is running. It allows the tenant to be confident, comfortable and give them the audience of their thoughts. It is a very good learning experience for both  and one of the best tools for an honest give and take of each party. As a property manager it is a requirement,as a tenant although inconvenient a great opportunity to make your living arrangements better going forward. Please use this important tool.
