Manchester property developers – you want more!

Could your existing apartments be worth around 10% more?   Current research being done by our MBA intern – he is looking at the relationship between the residual value of investment motor vehicles and property assets – and the initial insight is quite interesting..   The general findings show that vehicles that have been owned and maintained in line with OEM recommendations are worth in the order of 10% more than assets that do not have formal maintenance records (full-service history).   Aha I hear you cry – surely that is obvious when talking about cars as the 10% extra value has been spent during the life of the vehicle (in preventative maintenance), which would mean that it is not really an ‘additional’ return. This assumption would be correct, however – there are the hidden benefits of having a more reliable (and safe) car during its operational life, which means that emergency repairs/upset are more likely to be reduced. As with a well-maintained apartment, the tenants have less of a chance of having a problem – and in turn, require additional out of hour assistance. This ultimately means that residents would have a more positive tenant/landlord experience, with less unplanned maintenance charges!   There are some other interesting insights into how hidden value can be measured, with the adoption of more advanced maintenance strategies – the important, and the critical element is ensuring that the cost of this activity is effectively managed and monitored to ensure a positive return on investment.   DadShed is a Manchester PropTech startup, with the first app that is designed to simplify property management, while building trust and networking property, people and places..   *We are finding it hard to unearth specific raw data within specific property segments – anyone working within this area, we would love to speak with you and share our research – in return for your input.   Give us some feedback about what you think we'd love to hear it.

Occupier pain points

  Haven’t we all had at some point problems dealing with the old 'washing machine' breaking down scenario? We then had to repair it or replace it completely.    One renter had this issue that happened to them and we quote:    “When I was in Istanbul renting, the washing machine in our apartment broke down and we were forced to repair it. To compound the issue, the landlord asked us to pay for it since he doesn’t live with us and it came as quite a shock to me. Shortly after that, it broke down again and this time we had to buy a new one because it was beyond repair.”    How do you avoid such hassle? How can you tell if certain items in a house are old, need to be repaired or even exchanged?   This is one of the many examples that property management is not only time consuming, labour intensive but also chaotic. It costs time, effort and in my case money!   DadShed is about property data, that is being leaked, lost, misplaced, forgotten or simply thrown away. It is about championing tenants and homeowners so that problems like this can be managed in a better way.    Don’t you think it’s time for property management to receive an upgrade and to be digitised?    Now for some questions to our readers:   Let us know what you think about this matter! Basically give us pain points of a real-life situation that happened to you, and give thoughts on how an app like Dadshed could have saved you time.

Introducing DadShed is Digitising the Home User Manual (House Technical Specification)

Hello Crowdholders, Most people around the world manage their homes and offices using the trusted tools of a pen, paper, telephone calls and on-site visits. As far as we are aware, in general, homeowners currently do not use any technology to manage properties other than e-mail or cloud-based storage service.   As examples, how do you as a property occupier gain access to the warranty details of a washing machine, have somebody fix that broken handle or view the rental contract in a digital format?   Insurance companies have advised DadShed that 1 in 3 trips to manage properties are just to look at the issue, not to repair or resolve. Additionally, property management challenges are growing due to the increasing complexity of buildings and advent of technology within homes. The DadShed app enables property developers to create a better experience for their purchasers, helps them organise their documentation in effect a Digital Home User Manual (Home User Guide) and connect their approved suppliers to that building, for the long term. Additionally, we believe this will also provide any occupier with a platform to organise their home, not only for new build property developers, though for the secondhand and commercial markets too.   Here is an exmple on how it would work (with images):      The questions for the crowd are: 1. What other uses of the digital duplicate of inside buildings could be found beyond just making managing your home easier?   2. Are there any other methods people use to manage their homes beyond what we have discovered? We have also heard examples of property managers using Facebook Group and WhatsApp Group Looking forward to hearing your feedback. The DadShed team
