Tracking Your Assets
As part of our value added services, we map the major common area landscape assets at Location. GPS-based technology is used to inventory and appraise all of the common area trees and major irrigation components. This helps us assist the community management with budgeting and determining property asset values. As time goes by, we have the capability to plot more and more assets on the property. In addition, we can track changes that occur on the property, such as tree removals and tree replacements. With these statistics based on accurate GPS coordinates, the residents at Grayhawk are armed with valuable asset information.
