Fixes for Your Northwest Florida Income Property
Not every Northwest Florida income property you own will be a fixer upper, but all homes occasionally do require some maintenance and repair. Should your tenant not know what to do, you will need to be on your guard and ready to handle those jobs like a pro.
The first subject you need to breakdown is who does what. Aside from the basic bulb replacements, there will be things that stem out from the tenant responsibility and fall under the owner category. For instance, leaky roofs, busted water pipes and termite infestation.
As an owner, you should be prepared to roll your sleeves up and maintain your investment. Simple things like a quality paint job and updated features will make a big difference in the longevity of your home’s interior. The exterior, however, can be a little bit more of a struggle. Pressure washing will go a long way to improve your curb appeal, but what happens when a hurricane damages your front door or a winter storm freezes your pipes?
Owning an investment property can be a challenge and finding tenants to maintain it can be even tougher. Consider hiring Southern as your Gulf Coast property managers where we take on the responsibilities of your rental so you can sit back and relax.
