Remodeling, High Value
From property manager Tim Patricio: “We’re on track to approve 30 or more remodeling projects this year. Unit remodeling is one of the top three things that, in my opinion, improves property values. Those other two things, by the way, are to gradually lower the percentage of rental units, and to maintain the appearance of the property — it’s curb appeal. We’re doing all three at Park Tower!”
Electric Cars at PT?
Property manager Tim Patricio reports that at the time of this writing, one resident is parking and charging his electric car at Park Tower and another is considering it. The plan is to move forward on a case-by-case basis, coordinating with owners who purchase electric cars to set up metered outlets and then billing them for the electricity they use. Interest has been slow to develop, but Tim invites residents to inform him of their interest.
Moen Faucet Parts
Moen’s lifetime warranties apply to faucets purchased after 1995, and still in use by their original buyers, and properly registered. True, PT does have Moen lavatory faucets available, but if you buy one remember to register it online to qualify for free replacement parts should you need them in the future.
