What is a Property Appreciation Report?

First off, happy New Year and best wishes for 2014!

Always looking for ways to improve our services to property managers, over the past few months, we have turned our attention to the Depreciation Report that some stratas have chosen to implement.  While obviously helping to bring attention to, and budget for major items, we found that it left out all the smaller maintenance items such as cleaning of the building envelope (walls, balconies, windows etc.).

These are items that, while not as vital as the maintenance of the plumbing or heating systems, for example, can lead to premature deterioration of the building envelope if not regularly addressed.

Other items, such as power washing of the sidewalks and curbs, are mostly cosmetic, but go a long way in maintaining and increasing curbside appeal.

With that in mind, we are pleased to introduce our Property Appreciation Report. This free tool is designed to help stratas budget more proactively for maintenance items that will ensure their property keeps appreciating in value, the way it should. It is also a way for us to show our appreciation to our customers by going the extra mile when asked to look at a property.

What is a Property Appreciation Report?

The report, which will be delivered in PDF form, will be property specific and include the following:

  • Basic property information
  • General observations on the condition of the building
  • Pictures of areas of concern or requiring immediate attention
  • Recommendations on maintenance services to be scheduled, including frequency and pricing. These items may include:
    • Window Cleaning
    • Power washing or soft washing of building envelope
    • Dryer vent cleaning
    • Gutter Cleaning
    • Power washing of ground level sidewalks and other concrete surfaces
    • Power washing of parkade
    • 3 year budget forecast itemizing recommended services, frequency and cost

As of January 15, we are offering our Appreciation Report free of charge to property managers. We do believe that this is an invaluable tool that will help you save time and resources. By outlining in details the steps to be taken to stay on top of your stratas’ exterior maintenance needs, the report will allow you to shift from a reactive to a proactive approach.

To receive a free sample Appreciation Report, inquire further, or request one for a property you manage, simply contact Rob Baril, our Operations Manager, at rbaril@blacktieservices.ca.

Please note that this is a limited time offer.
