While your multi-family rental property will provide you with a solid income, the amount you net from it depends on various factors, mostly involving how well the property is maintained.
A lot of costly problems can be prevented with multi-family property landscaping maintenance, so instead of seeing it as just an expense, try to look at it as an investment that will save you money.
Keep Trees from Becoming a Hazard
Trees are quite desirable on most properties because they look good and provide shade. However, poorly maintained trees can become a hazard due to weak branches that are susceptible to breakage. It is also possible for overgrown trees to hang over the property and endanger the roofing.
Getting landscaping maintenance means not letting the trees become a hazard.
Avoid Removal of Dead Plants
If you decide to skip landscaping altogether to save costs and you do not maintain the property on your own, you will end up with dead grass, plants, or trees that need to be removed. Not only will dead plants need to be replaced to maintain a good-looking property, but there are costs involved with each removal.
Protect Property Foundation
One of the most costly problems with any home is the foundation. Fixing foundation-related problems is time-consuming, expensive, and intrusive to your tenants, so avoiding them is the ideal solution.
Landscaping professionals will be able to seek out moisture issues that can lead to foundation problems, and then they can make the necessary adjustments to protect your property’s foundation.
Regular Service over As Needed
Although you might think it is okay to get landscaping assistance when you think it is needed, maintaining a multi-family property or any property for that matter, requires routine care. With a rental property, it becomes even more important for it to be well-maintained to keep your tenants satisfied.
