We rent the same house at the Jersey Shore every year. Between the prior week’s tenants leaving and our arrival, the owners (who live here in another house) check everything out to make sure the cleaning crew has been thorough, everything is working correctly, and any repairs that need to be made are either done or scheduled.
They make that ongoing investment of time and improvement in their income source. So we return annually, and never question any rent increases.
How about you? Are you constantly applying the energy and investment to improve your income source? Or do you have “no time” or are afraid to spend the money?
