Property preservation encompasses a wide range of services that we provide for your home or the land its on. In a nutshell, if something happens to your home via a fire, natural disaster, or vandalism, you can call us, and we’ll make the necessary repairs to restore your home back to its original condition fully. This leaves the field wide open for our contractors to perform just about any work. Below, we look more closely at how our property preservation service can be valuable to you when you need it.
There are many different components of property preservation. Here are some of the important services that we offer.
Initial Property Securing
Once the previous occupants move out, you’ll have to make sure that the property is secure and safe. WIth DuAll, our technicians can change all the locks on the home, identify and address any potential safety issues, and secure outbuildings, pools, and more.
Water Extractions in Minnesota
April showers bring May flowers, but they also bring flooded basements. This can be especially problematic if you are managing a portfolio of foreclosed properties. Because you likely don’t visit every foreclosed home every day, the chance that water damage can creep into floors and walls is much greater. And if that water is left unattended, you will be facing a lot of damage - and steep repair costs.
Although it may seem easy, creating a lawn and maintaining your property’s exteriors are hard work. Doing both require that you know a little more than normal to ensure you get everything just right. DIY work may be great for some small projects, but when you own properties as an investor, you need the expertise and resources that a local expert offers you.
It’s officially spring, but the ground is still quite wet. This puts us in a conundrum. We know that you’d love for us to start working on your properties’ yards as soon as possible. And yet we must balance that with our knowledge of how to take care of a yard. The end result, after all, is for your properties to look like some of the best ones on the block.
Is it spring yet? It sure seems like it is. The snow cover has receded, families are out on their bicycles, and short sleeves are enough to keep the elements at bay. But, this is Minnesota...
In the property preservation world, Dirty Dave is a renaissance man. He is our foreman, the orchestral director who coordinates the complicated teamwork that goes into preserving hundreds of homes throughout Minnesota at any given time. Yes, he’s a leader. But he’s also much more.
Our attention to detail sets us apart. Too often, our customers have worked with property preservation companies that come in and go through a property as fast as they can. That’s how you miss things. And a half-finished house makes your job much harder.
Oftentimes, you’ll have a portfolio of many foreclosed homes to look after, and you can’t be at all of them at the same time. If the furnace or boiler breaks down, shuts off, or outside power is somehow cut from the property, you are at a serious risk of having the house freeze. When a house freezes, the pipes burst. And burst pipes are a several-thousand dollar repair job.
How do you get a mansion on the beach? Is it higher education, or greed?
