Blog Post: How Centralized Maintenance Drives NOI for SFR Operators

Single-family rental (SFR) operators across the nation face a common challenge: managing maintenance requests and repairs efficiently across dispersed properties. This logistical challenge can quickly impact your Net Operating Income (NOI) – the lifeblood of your business. But amidst these obstacles, there is a way to leverage the power of distributed maintenance hubs for greater efficiency, reduced costs, and ultimately, a healthier NOI.

The Problem with Dispersed Maintenance

Imagine this: a broken window at one property, a malfunctioning furnace at another. Coordinating repairs across a geographically dispersed portfolio and finding the right technicians with the right skillset to handle the jobs can be tough logistically. Traditional methods often involve:

  • Inefficient scheduling: Technicians travel long distances and techs dispatched  with mismatched skillsets result in wasting valuable time and delays to your jobs.
  • Disorganized communication: Information gets lost in a sea of emails and phone calls, causing costly delays in quickly resolving your resident’s issue.
  • Unreliable supplier management: Tracking outsourced services becomes a chore, potentially leading to miscommunication, missed deadlines, and inconsistent workmanship.

The result? Frustration for both residents and service managers, not to mention a significant dent in your NOI.
