More often than not, maintenance has a negative connotation in the rental property world.
The goal of all Landlords is to minimize it.
The goal of all Tenants is to ensure it’s done and done right now.
For Landlords, maintenance usually means something is broken, or there’s some other issue that’s going to cost them money.
But that isn’t, and shouldn’t always, be the case.
Most maintenance should be viewed as asset preservation as opposed to fixing and replacing.
Most experienced and successful Landlords understand that the better a property is maintained, the lower the long-term expenses should be, and the higher chances for Tenant satisfaction and longevity.
