Hiring a company to do yard work on your rental property might seem like an unnecessary expense. Here are a few reasons why it’s not.
Today we’re going to discuss yard service. Owners often ask us if they should include yard service in their, let’s say, $900,000 home. The answer is yes. For just $100 per month, you can guarantee that the yard will be in the exact same condition as it was when you bought the property.
Most of the time, houses come with a yard service already attached to it. Whoever has been the yard man, continue to use them. If you can afford it, it’s a great investment.
“If you can afford it, it’s a great investment.”
Your yard has a lot to do with how your home looks from the outside. Why wouldn’t you preserve the yard? Why would you risk having the tenant take care of the yard? Tenants either love yard work or hate yard work. If you get a tenant that hates yard work, how would you deal with that? You can cancel the lease, but that process will take months. If you can afford to pay $100 to $150 a month for someone to come and take care of your yard, you should do it. They’ll cut the grass, trim the trees, and de-weed the beds and you won’t have to worry about it at all.
If you have any questions about yard service at your property, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email today. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
