Your investment property is a business and as such you require it to perform well and give you a good return. It is hard to maximise your return if the property is not well maintained as it will not attract tenant’s top dollar.
Good maintenance will mean that the property will present well, and it will be comfortable to live in therefore attracting good interest from tenants.
As a business you also must manage risk. Good well-maintained property will normally be a safer environment for tenants therefore lowering you risk of being liable for a potential tenant injury.
The message is simple look after your investment properties and they will give you a good and safe return with minimum worry to you.
