I go monthly to check out the outside and common areas and to just be present. Check light bulbs and things like that.
Hello Beau! I technically self manage, as I am a Property Manager ;) I walk through all of the properties under my management at least every 6 months, and if I see anything out of the ordinary, I'll take pictures with my phone and address the situation later. I give my tenants at least a 24 hour notice of my walk through. I'd much rather face the situations head on and as early as possible than deal with any negative ramifications down the line!
I try to go once a month for varying reasons or if I am in the area drop by. When I go I view the exterior property condition and sometimes the tenants see me around. That's keeps them on their toes as they know I'm around.
At least once a month for exterior. Around every 6 months for interior.However, I walk through interior common areas every time im at the property. Whenever there’s a maintainance issue, I take care of it myself so I can look around the unit. Don’t be afraid of what you’ll find. Letting issues go for long periods of time will only make them worse.
2x per month. Gotta stay on them. As they stabilize, you can roll back to once per month once you know the tenants are solid.
