Budget season is here! Navigating budget season can be overwhelming, but fear not! We’ve compiled some valuable tips to help you manage the process with ease:

Plan Ahead: Give yourself ample time to prepare. Start by brainstorming projects for the upcoming year and researching the feasibility of the project. Gathering all the necessary information may take longer than expected, so getting a head start will minimize stress.

Seek Expert Help: Don’t go through it alone. Partnering with reliable vendors like KCR can provide you with valuable cost assistance and expert insights. Whether it’s updating, renovating, or maintaining your property, an experienced vendor will work with you to find the best-suited solutions.

Create an Early Schedule: Develop a comprehensive schedule early in the process, working backward from your final deadline. This will give you enough time to meet internal deadlines for tasks such as gathering and inputting data, generating tenant recoveries, and preparing final packages with variance notes. Don’t forget to add some buffer time for unexpected delays or changes that may occur.

Delegate Responsibly: Involving several team members in the budget process is common. Ensure everyone understands their role, responsibilities, and timelines to maintain a smooth workflow and empower each team member in the process.

Track Changes: As you review budgets, keep a list of items that need further updates or aren’t final yet. This will help you avoid revisiting the entire package and streamline the updating process.
