Spring is the time of year of renewal. As the days become longer, winter slowly loosens its icy grip, melted away by warm spring rains and a new awareness of vigor. Spring brings lovely flowers, outdoor amusements, and for rental property owners, an exhaustive list of to-do items. Spring is considered a great chance to check that your New Braunfels rental homes are in good working order and ready for another year. By addressing a few key areas of your property each spring, you can keep your valuable investment fit and profitable for years to come.
A careful evaluation of your rental home is a suitable place to begin your spring to-do list. Concrete areas including the foundation, driveway, patio, and walkways should be inspected, and any cracks or gaps repaired. Exterior doors and windows need to be checked for cracks and gaps and sealed with caulk or weather stripping if needed. Exterior door hardware should also be evaluated, repairing or replacing any squeaky handles or loose locks. Spring is a suitable time to wipe windows, repair door screens and to retouch exterior paint. Another good way of doing things is to look at the roof for missing or damaged shingles and to repair or replace outdoor light fixtures.
Remember to include the yard when marking off items on your list of spring maintenance. Spring is the right time to test sprinkler systems and make any necessary repairs. Perimeter fences and gates should be checked and repaired if needed. Spring is also a good time to gauge the quality of garbage cans and replace any lids that are destroyed or are fragmented. Ultimately, spring cleaning should make room in the list for landscaping, and spring is a great time to plant new trees and bushes. Decide where you want to plant the trees and bushes and plan what else needs to be changed or added in order to further beautify your yard. Remove dead bushes or tree branches and rake up any leftover leaves. Lawns should be fertilized, and flower beds prepared for summer blooms.
Handling all of these repair and maintenance items may call for a dumpster or some other kind of container. Before determining whether to rent one, it’s vital to verify with the local authorities first. While a dumpster may be an easy means in managing the junk left behind from your spring maintenance and repair checklist, local regulations may not allow dumpsters to be placed in front of a rental house, or may only allow them for a specific length of time.
Spring cleaning items like these contribute a significant part of rental property maintenance. By repeatedly taking care of repair and maintenance items, you can mark up your rental rates, keep away from high-priced repairs, and ensure your tenants are satisfied.
