Securing Services for a Reasonable Price – Tips for Block Managers

Posted on January 28, 2019 at 8:24 pm

Block management companies make their money from efficiently and effectively managing large properties, often blocks of flats where lots of people live. This means that you don’t want to be in a position where you will be spending too much money on services, or you will find yourself in a position where you are not making enough money from all your hard work. The main thing is understanding the marketplace, which will be different wherever you are based. You must get regular quotes from local contractors, which will indicate to you what a reasonable price is for the area. 

Once you have this information, acting on it is key. If your contractors are charging over the odds, then it’s a good idea to set up a meeting with them. Talk to them about their costs and what you have in mind. It could be that they are unable to reduce costs further, or perhaps they could give you lower costs if you give them a higher volume of work.
