Rental Property Maintenance Costs: Preventative vs. Deferred MaintenanceThere’s an adage we like that you may have heard: a stitch in time saves nine. When it comes to rental property maintenance, many of us tend to defer the work that needs to be done. However, a deferred problem is a magnified problem. So, we need to find ways to be more proactive and look ahead. Looking for items that are degrading or wearing out is an important way to choose preventative maintenance over deferred maintenance. These problems should be fixed immediately, and not left to become more complicated and expensive.
Rental Property Maintenance Costs: Bi-annual
It’s better to be proactive, especially with your home’s systems and appliances. If you wait until the problem grows, you have to be reactive, and that will usually cost you more. For example, a leaky dishwasher can cause flood disasters and ruin your flooring. Inspections will reduce maintenance costs.
