Phoenix Property Management – Three Tips for a successful Phoenix Move!

No matter how you look at it, moving is stressful! Packing, changing routines and uprooting your household is a surefire recipe for stress no matter who you are.  However, adding pets and children into the equation can amp up the stress even more! Here we provide tips for the three steps of a move; preparation, moving day and post move.

The best way to prepare your children is to talk about the move and have them assist with the prep work.  Let them decide on things like paint color for their new room.  If possible, take them to things such as restaurants, shops and schools near the new property and help them visualize what new memories will be like at the new home.  As much as possible try to engage your kids in the packing process so that if you have to pare down their items they assist with the decision making.  Be sure to pack a few of their favorite items either in the car or at the top of a box specially marked so they can have them at the new home right away.
Moving Day:
Expect moving day to be hectic, and do everything you can to alleviate that stress. If you can, have a friend take your pet for the day so that you don’t have to worry about them getting out while moving things into the new place.  Also, maybe see if your kids can do a play day with friends so that they don’t have to experience the stress and pressure with the actual move.

Post-Move Tips:
Try to unpack all boxes as quickly as possible so that the property starts to feel like a home quickly.  Return your pets to their normal eating and walk schedule right away.  Also, be sure your kids have their favorite toys. Getting back to routine provides security and comfort to little ones (with both two and four feet!) in the midst of change.

Phoenix Property Management – Top 3 Things to Prep Your Phoenix Rental Home For Monsoon Season!

It’s certainly that time again when the Phoenix skies begin to cover with clouds in the afternoon and before you know it the thunder is deafening and the lightening is blinding….what we Phoenician’s call Monsoon Season!  During this season traffic becomes a mess as the dark clouds roll in and getting out of your car makes you look like a drowned rat BUT let’s not forget what these nasty storms can do to your Phoenix home.  As a result we have put together the top three things that can be done to prep your Phoenix rental home for monsoon season.

1. Have your roof thoroughly inspected by a professional roofer who can advise of broken roof tiles and leaks.  Have any repairs completed on your roof by end of May before the monsoon season starts.

2. Hire a professional landscaper at the beginning of June to remove all branches from near the property and to remove any trees that could potentially hit the property if struck by lightening.  Additionally, stake down any young trees that could be uprooted by the storm.

3. Check drainage around the entire property.  Have you ever noticed when it rains there are pools of water in the yard?  If so, be sure to get those evaluated as you may need to have your grounds leveled to avoid possible flooding.

In summary, monsoon season can be a very dangerous and expensive time in Phoenix so it is best to prepare your Phoenix rental home prior to the beginning of the storms.
