Property inspections for the virtual age
Guest author : Dijana Speak
Property management specialists, Speak Realty, have introduced the ‘Virtual Inspection Report’ as a service to their clients.
The Virtual Inspection Report is a guided video tour designed to provide owners an update on the condition of their investment property. The Virtual Inspection Report is performed on a quarterly basis, in line with Speak Realty’s standard property condition reporting.
Each video report will typically contain:
- Insight into tenant behaviour and satisfaction
- Comments on general cleanliness and condition of the property
- Highlights of any repairs or maintenance performed over the previous period
- Update on any items that may require attention in the coming period
The Speak Realty team may also use the Virtual Inspection Report to communicate suggestions to increase the value of your investment property, or improve tenant satisfaction and retention.
Ultimately, this service is designed to provide peace of mind, and confidence that your investment property is in safe hands.
Viewing the video
Each video is uploaded to YouTube, and shared only with the owner(s). Reports are delivered to owners via an email notifying them that the Virtual Inspection Report is available.
Each video is uploaded as a private video, which means the video is not listed in the YouTube public directory, and can only be viewed by named individuals. Due to the privacy settings, this also means that recipients cannot simply forward the email or link to others to view the video, although settings can be adjusted to allow sharing where required.
Written inspection reports
A written report is still produced for each inspection, and available via Speak Realty’s Owner Portal. For more information on the Virtual Inspection Report give Speak Realty a call on 02 8850 5050.
