Streamlining End-of-Season Inspections and Projects
With the arrival and departure of Labor Day weekend, many vacation rental companies across the country are experiencing a well-deserved break from the busy summer season. And as the wave of guests start to dwindle, and the off-season arrives, for many managers, it’s time to start thinking about inspections, winterizations, and other tasks that can only be accomplished when the summer is just about over.
So when it’s time to start checking and inspecting all of your homes for varying tasks and endeavors, remember that LSI Tools can help!
The Survey Tool has been called one of LSI’s most versatile tools, and for good reason. This tool has been used for a number of guest and owner-related projects, such as customer feedback, advanced reservation requests, cancellations, weddings and special events, and other scenarios where the ability to easily gather and review info is key.
And as the off-season approaches, when it comes to varying inspections, the Survey Tool can come in handy too! Here are just a few ways this tool can be used when the off-season arrives, and there’s finally a little time to start reviewing, inspecting, and undertaking projects for all of your vacation rental properties.
Are your owners conducting their own winterizations, or would they like your maintenance team to do it? Do you need to drain the pipes, shut off the breakers, or just do a few minor adjustments to the thermostat? Using the Survey Tool to ask and answer these questions can give you a clear path forward for all of your homes.
How did your homes handle the wave of summertime traffic? Are there maintenance issues or broken items that the housekeepers and inspectors may have missed on busy check-in days? Use the Survey Tool for post-season inspections, to confirm your properties are in excellent shape.
Marketing or description forms
Are your property descriptions up-to-date, or have new items been removed or added since the season began? The Survey Tool allows you to create forms that can help compare what you have listed as amenities to what is actually in the home.
New property or departing property checklists
Do you have new homes coming into your program for 2019, or homes that are leaving in the coming year? Use the Survey Tool to get information on properties that are either coming or going from your vacation rental program.
Is everything working properly in your homes? Are there any fire hazards, repairs required, or other potentially dangerous conditions, like loose decking boards? Maintenance inspections can ensure your properties are safe and ready to enjoy by guests, while alerting homeowners of any potential problems on the horizon.
