There’s a lot of pressure to minimize costs. You might not have as much room in the budget as you used to, and you need to save money to be able to cover things that could happen that you can’t predict now. How much should you continue to budget for property maintenance, though?
You’ve probably put a lot of thought on the upfront costs of your property maintenance and gone with the cheapest options. You might even have postponed making repairs, replacements, or upgrades, even when you could really use them, just because the money isn’t there. The only problem with this approach is that you don’t want to wait until you need the updates to make them: you want to make sure your property is maintained properly, and that costs money.
To help ease your mind a bit, here are some tips from Command7 about what to consider when reviewing property maintenance services prices. While we can’t give definite figures without a complete overview of your situation, here are the things that we’ve found are most likely to change your cost.
The Size of Your Property
It’s fairly safe to assume that the larger the property is, the more expensive it will be to maintain in every season. In general, bigger areas require more time to work on, and more time translates to more money. That’s not always a guarantee, though—if a smaller property has more complicated or specialized work that needs to be done, the technicalities could add up to more money, possibly even more than a larger piece of land that just needed some minor touch-ups.
Additional man-hours are needed with frequent maintenance visits, which could cause you to pay more. However, the benefits of having more frequent visits rather than just a single visit can pay for themselves. Too much time in between your property maintenance appointments could mean that your property isn’t as beautiful or safe for the people coming in and out. On the other hand, even a one-time repair job that takes several hours to complete, or ends up turning into more than one job, could become more expensive than a series of routine maintenance visits. It depends on a few things that we can talk to you about when you reach out to Command7.
What Needs to be Done
Everything from the labor to the equipment required depends on the specific things that need to be done on your property, but there are two major things to keep in mind: the condition of your property, and the actual services required. If your property is and has been maintained properly, there won’t be as great of charges or even as many visits required to maintain it. As for what services need to be performed, that depends on your property. Routine maintenance of the building and landscaping that doesn’t involve in-depth repairs won’t cost as much, especially if you’ve done a good job of taking care of your property already. Getting a building that hasn’t been as cared for back in working order, on the other hand, could run you a bit more.
