The Overlooked Factor That Can Make or Break Your Property

Why Parking Lot Maintenance Matters

The parking lot can be easy to overlook when considering the presentation of your property. Oftentimes managers will go to great lengths to ensure things like landscaping and paint are well maintained, but they should also take care to keep their  parking lots from falling into disrepair. Curb appeal is among the first concerns when attempting to present your property in the best light. Nevertheless, the overall state of your community's asphalt and concrete can often be neglected. While it may not be the first thing you think of, it's important to make sure that your parking lot is free of potentially harmful elements like cracks, potholes, and fading lines because it can sometimes be the difference between your property being perceived as a well-cared for place to live or a poor leasing choice.

The way your parking lot looks and feels can inform potential residents whether or not you care about the presentation of your property; as well as how committed you are to maintaining a high standard for those who live or work there. Managers should keep an eye on any debris that forms on their property and limit the time dirt and leaves go unattended. Rain and sun exposure will cause a host of problems to be aware of such as line fading, cracks (which can develop into potholes), and puddles that can potentially cause more damage to your lot. This is why it is necessary for managers to be mindful of maintaining their parking lots and contacting an experienced asphalt and concrete repair service if and when there are any potential problems.

By maintaining the asphalt and concrete of your lot, as well as keeping your striping defined, managers can trust that their properties will complement any landscaping effort as well as maximize the parking availability for all your residents and future prospects. Regularly caring for your lot can increase its longevity and help avoid any potentially significant repair work.

I Get What You’re Saying

You never know who’s going to walk through the front door when you work in a leasing office. In this case, a couple looking for a new place to call home, had a slight difference of opinion on which floor plan they’d need for their growing family. I love how the leasing director helped take some of the tension out of what could have otherwise been a stressful situation.
