Vacation Property Management
Zapple looks forward to adding Vacation Property Management to our menu of options available for both our Silver Valley Owners and Renters. You can expect to see our same passion and devotion to exceptional service with Vacation Properties starting in late fall 2014.
Commercial Property Management
Good things come to those who wait. We will be enlarging the portfolio of Zapple to include Commercial Property Management in 2015. We are looking forward this expansion as we anticipate great things to come to The Silver Valley from this addition.

Zapple Total Home Care
You don't have to be a Tenant or Owner with Zapple to call upon Zapple Total Home Care (Zapple THC) to help you get your property into peak condition – and keep it that way.
You name it – We clean it! Call us to help you get ready for that special event, or if you need us to set you up on a regular cleaning schedule. Our staff are professionals who are trustworthy, courteous, thorough, efficient and hard working.
We can perform 100's of the minor repairs that constantly crop-up inside and outside homes. We bill at $40/hour which is half of what it would cost you to call a plumber or electrician. We do not mark up materials purchased for your job. And like our cleaning team, our maintenance staff are professionals who are trustworthy, courteous, thorough, efficient and hard working.
And if a job is too big for Zapple THC or requires a permit or licensed professional we have a team of Preferred Vendors we can call on to get the job done efficiently and professionally. And because we are a high volu – and often times at a slight lower rate than homeowners.
From finishing your basement, to adding a bedroom or bathroom, to moving your washer/dryer; Zapple THC can get the job done. Zapple THC can increase both the value of your home and/or the rental value of your investment property. If you have an idea, we can turn it into reality.
Disclaimer: Zapple Property Management and Zapple Total Home Care are separate companies but share the same ownership.

Some Zapple tips if you are going away in the Winter:
Shut off outside faucets that are not frost free. Shut off lawn sprinklers, and have them blown out. If your not going to use your Hot Tub have it drained and winterized. Check and Secure any outside shed, garage, or crawl space that might become a winter home for wild animals. Store any grass seed, bird seed, or pet food in metal containers.
You can have the water system drained if you're gone for an extended time. Most new homes are designed to have this done fairly easily. Older homes might be more difficult to do. You might want to have your Plumber take care of doing this for you. If you can't drain your house or don't want to, then make sure that your heat is set for no lower than 45 degrees and open cabinet doors near faucets. Remove window AC units. Close any storm windows. Check that all window and door locks are working. Put an old broom handle or other piece of wood in the track of sliding glass doors/windows.
Stop mail or news paper delivery. Notify your local police and Alarm Company that your home will be vacant and give them your contact information. Consider calling Zapple Home Check for piece of mind.
