Many private homes and condominiums are second homes for part-time residents of Aspen who only spend part of the year in town. Sometimes, plush private homes and condominiums sit empty for all but one or two weeks a year. Obviously, allowing an investment property to be unmaintained and cared for is an unwise decision. Many homeowners go to great extents to keep their investment home or condominium in top-notch condition - and that's where Frias Properties of Aspen comes in.
Frias Properties offers a number of services for non-rental and short-term rental owners. Most homeowners choose to hire a property management company for a number of reasons. First, having a local company available 24/7 to respond to any issue that may arise is important. There's nothing better than having a aEUoeman on the groundaEU in Aspen should a water main burst, an electrical issue, or even a massive snowfall. All of those, if left unattended, could be disastrous. But another great benefit of hiring the Frias team to oversee your Aspen rental is the long list of services and amenities that fall under the umbrella of what is considered aEUoeproperty management.aEU Today's property management spectrum includes administration, accounting, concierge, front desk and transportation services, just to name a few. (All of these services are covered under the Frias monthly management fee.)
