Don’t Look Now

Keeping your eyes closed is an easy way to pretend nothing is wrong. We have all been guilty of closing our eyes to things we don’t want to deal with, but we also know that someday it will catch up to us, so why not deal with it now.

We are now coming to the end of February and Spring is only a few week’s away, so why not use this time to deal with things that you have been avoiding with your investment property. Even if your property is occupied, you can still do things that have been needed, some of those things for a long time. The Tenant in the property, even if it is a little bit of a burden, may appreciate your diligence.

Let’s take a look at a few suggestions that could need attention.

Painting the exterior of the property. How long has it been since you painted the exterior of your rental property? Yes, it is a little expensive, but it will spruce up the place and the next time you need to put your property on the market, the exterior will look great.

The smoke and C/O alarms
. How long as it been since you changed those alarms. If you are still changing batteries, you should think about putting in the 10 year no battery replacement alarms. Believe it or not, those old alarms do have an expiration date.

How old are the angle valves under the sinks
. Can you actually still turn off the water under the sinks in your rental property? It may be time to upgrade to the new, quarter turn angle valves.

If you really want to get aggressive, how are the windows around your property? I know, this is probably not a necessity, but if you have a little extra cash, it may be a good investment.

How old is your roof?
The roof is the most important part of your home. If it leaks, it’s time to replace. Repairing a roof is usually a waist of money. If you think it may be time to replace your roof, you have a few months to get several bids and make the best choice.

How old is your carpet? If it’s time to replace your carpet, don’t replace it with carpet, put either wood or tile. The best investment for rental property is tile. Wood is beautiful, but not as durable. I never recommend laminate flooring. Please don’t waste your money. It may be cheaper in the short run, but will cost you more in the long run.

Check all your bathrooms and kitchens for leaks. Look under the sinks, if your water supply lines are old, you should replace them. Make sure pipes don’t leak. Water leaks can cause costly damage. Check your faucets. If they leak, you may want fix or replace them. Make sure your toilets are bolted down tight and check the water supply lines.

Does your landscaping need some help?
If you have a yard, you may want to plant some new plants and flowers. If you have grass, it may need some patching. Make sure tree’s are trimmed and walkways are clear.

Change all the filters in the property, including HVAC, water, and refrigerator.

Check around the outside of the property for any openings that rodents can get in.


Check all appliances to make sure they are in working order.

These are just a few suggestions that could be done to your rental property this spring. I realize that most of these things aren’t urgent or may not even be necessary, but at least pick out one or two things every year. The most important thing, is to  make your property as safe and as healthy as possible.

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
