Proritize Property Maintenance


During these times of economic stagnation, many people – whether it’s a landlord or a homeowner or a business owner – have been forced to tighten their finances.  For example, I for one have been constantly asking myself the question, “Do I really need this?”, and I’ve made a concerted effort to prioritize larger property expenses.

That said, while it’s easy enough to do this for certain segments of spending, assigning precedence to property maintenance jobs can be much harder to do.  After all, how do you decide whether it is more important to keep the electricity on or to keep the basement from flooding?

When it comes to decisions like these, many people may be at a loss for answers, but experts tell us that such decisions are relatively easy to make.  Their advice is to follow the rule of thumb for evaluating each maintenance job on the basis of its potential to cause damage and how much it would cost to repair that damage.  There are several guidelines on how you can assess these risks along with the steps you can take to prolong the life of different sections of your home or investment property to cut down your maintenance costs.
