BONUS OVERFLOW SURVIVAL TIP from February 2017:
Set money aside for THE unexpected Your properties may feature brand new heating and air conditioning systems, water heaters, and state-of-the-art appliances or it could have major systems that are held together by duct tape and a short prayer – but one thing remains a constant in real estate: regardless of age or condition, things will break, and usually when you least expect them to.
In keeping with the Boy Scout motto, you should always be prepared by having a maintenance fund. You segregate the money based on the potential of certain amount routine maintenance that will be needed or simply a blanket emergency replacement fund. Which way you do it is not the point here, as long as you budget for this contingency. What you don’t want to happen is to have a tenant call you on the coldest night of the year to tell you that the furnace is broken – and have to break the news to them that help will be coming with the Spring thaw.
