Many inexperienced landlords hold to the myth that avoiding needed repairs will save them money. They learn too late that addressing repairs quickly and cost-effectively prevents more expensive problems from developing while avoiding tenant turnover. Slow or non-response to maintenance requests is the #1 reason tenants vacate a home, and tenant turnover is expensive. By unwisely scrimping on maintenance, landlords can lose much more in tenant turnover in the form of vacancy days, marketing costs, and preparing the unit once again.

At Real Property Management Dallas/Ft. Worth, we’ve learned by experience that retention of long term tenants is the number one variable in achieving your investment goals. Your tenants are your customers, so keep them happy, and you’ll stay in business!
Responding quickly and thoroughly to maintenance requests increases tenant retention, which helps you avoid the cost of vacancy time, and the associated marketing costs and make-ready expenses.
