Occupier pain points

By | Public | No Comments

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?

Digitising the Home User Manual

By | Public | No Comments

Most people around the world still 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?

Building 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 anything, wow! 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 Home User Guide and connect their approved suppliers to that building. 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.

The questions for everybody that live in a a home is:
1. What other uses of this digital data 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
3. We welcome your thoughts on anything else we have not considered with regards to improving and championing the occupier experience?
