property assesments

Our experienced project managers conduct an on-site evaluation of your properties, assessing improvements that could increase value and marketability. These assessments include a thorough walk-through of the properties to determine any deferred maintenance issues as well as opportunities to improve the property value. The assessment is extremely helpful whether you are interested in increasing the value of your property or assessing the necessary repair budget for the purpose of an acquisition.
We assess properties through a comprehensive 3-tier system:
Inaugural Assessment

LYND first does an immediate assessment by looking at the condition of the property and establishing if the property has any of the following:

  • Foundation issues
  • Roof leaks
  • Down units
  • Wood rot
  • Life/safety issues
  • Drainage issues
  • City/code violation
  • Electric/plumbing repairs
  • Utility evaluation- water/sewer, electricity, and gas

 

Enhancement Estimates

LYND then evaluates each property through a number of possible capital enhancements including:

 

  • Exterior paint
  • Parking lots repairs/seal coat/re-stripe
  • Access gates/perimeter fence
  • Landscape/irrigation
  • Pool repairs
  • Tree trim
Value Recomendations

The last tier of the Assessment is a list of recommendations for the property based on LYND’s expertise and knowledge. These recommendations may include:

  • Property signage
  • Amenity upgrades
  • Clubhouse upgrades
  • Unit upgrade (if marketable)
  • Courtyard enhancements
