Interview Home Service Professionals
If you are self-managing, and sometimes even if you have a management company, you will need to have Home Service Professionals in your network, ready to jump to help you at any moment. If you live a couple hours away from your cabin, like most of the Hochatown owners do, you will want to be able to call a service professional at any given moment to help in case something goes wrong at the cabin while a guest is there. Use the time while you are waiting on teh close of your cabin to research and get references on the various Service Profesionals in the area. Call and interview them. When you have candidates set up, schedule them to meeet you at your cabin during your first stay after closing. Make sure you understand how each likes to communicate with their customers and have their contact information stored in your phone for emergencies.
