Making a Plan: Greater Gwinnett

Making a Plan: Greater Gwinnett

While in the rental property purchasing phase, your priorities often start with location. If you’re reading this, you’ve probably picked a Gwinnett location and are ready to rent it out. But after acquiring a property and renting it out, a proactive move is to switch your attention to the planning period. As one of the largest property management companies in Gwinnett, we recommend the following tips:

  1. Plan on maintenance costs. It’s a fact of running a rental property.
  2. Plan on things breaking. Appliances, faucets, water heaters, heating and air conditioning units—these things don’t last forever. Whether you are able to repair them or they need replacing, things break.
  3. Plan on tenant turnover. If you keep tenants happy, they typically will stay put for a while, but even the happiest tenants won’t stay forever. Job changes, schooling, outgrowing the home, or even purchasing a home of their own—life events happen.
  4. Plan on repeating the process. Every time you have a tenant move out, you will need to prepare the property for a new one. Costs will vary, but could include new paint, new carpet, bringing the home up to code if necessary, and making any repairs from normal wear and tear.
