What’s in your property management office? What kinds of supplies do you have? What kind of supplies should property managers have on hand?
If you don’t know the answers to these questions, we’re here to help! Here are a few supplies that could benefit a wide range of property management companies:
While ManageGo always encourages you to take as much of your property management process digital as possible, you may find yourself with plenty of things to mail, especially if you haven’t fully transitioned to online systems yet. Be prepared for those situations by keeping plenty of postal supplies — things like envelopes, return address labels, and stamps — on hand at all times.
Pet waste bags
We know that pet owners should always supply bags and clean up after their pets themselves. Still, mistakes happen, and it’s possible to run out of bags or forget to bring them out along on a walk. If you supply bags in a place that’s convenient for residents, you’ll make it that much more likely that everything gets cleaned up properly.
Signs are a huge part of how a business communicates, so they’re something every property manager should consider carefully. Make sure you have signs in place anywhere you might want to let any of your residents know about anything they should or shouldn’t do. This is especially important if your property has on-site parking — you’ll need things like stop signs to manage the flow of traffic and no parking signs to let people know where they can’t park. Examine the parking lots and roadways around your property to make sure you have all the signage you need.
OK, this one’s a bit silly, but property managers can make very good use of balloons. They add color and a sense of fun to any celebration or event where people come to have a good time. If you’ve never tried having balloons at an event like this, give it a chance — you might be surprised at what they can add to an atmosphere.
