Owning a second home is a great way to build equity, but — just like everything in life— it comes with its own headaches and stress points. Oh, the roof is leaking or the kid next door kicked a soccer ball into the window, or the water heater flooded the hallway, etc etc.
We offer second home property management services to take care of things that neighbors and alarm systems simply can’t. Our services are designed for the home-owner who is only able to enjoy Summit County on a part-time basis, and wants assurance that their home is being looked after regularly, by reputable locals. We are here to watch over your vacant home to protect and preserve your valuable asset.
In many cases, especially in our seasonal mountain town, property owners do not have the luxury of living nearby their second home. We provide the property owner with an initial inspection, which describes in detail the general condition of the property. This task helps to identify anything that may need repairs or maintenance. We also provide weekly security inspections to confirm well-being of the property; we keep a checklist on site which identifies dates we visit.
Special inspections are also performed when deep freezes, heavy snowfalls, or summer storms occur. We check plumbing for possible frozen pipes, electrical motors affected by power interruptions, and general security. Professional housekeeping services can be available at your request to fit your personal needs, as we want to ensure that when you visit, you arrive to a fresh & clean residence for you to enjoy.
We will arrange for regular or specially requested maintenance projects for the owner. Key to the Rockies Real Estate works closely with many qualified sub contractors in the Summit County area. We will solicit bids based on the owners specifications, submit them for approval, coordinate access to the property, and supervise to determine the work is done to the complete satisfaction of the owner. This task is perhaps the most beneficial, as organizing and coordinating time frames for maintenance work can prove to be quite difficult from afar.
In addition to these helpful services, we are also available to help with home remodeling projects, snow removal/lawn care, key & reservation services, mail/package delivery, and 24-hour on-call service.
Second Home Management is not a place to cut corners when considering expenses of owning additional properties. We are more than happy to assist in saving you time, money and headaches. Our transparent practices + local knowledge put us a step ahead of the competition.
