Leaving a rental property vacant is a big risk for investors. Not only is it expensive, it also leaves you open to vandalism, theft, and squatting. There’s also the risk of unreported maintenance issues. When tenants are living in your property, they’re quick to notice leaks, electric issues, and other potential problems. With no one in the property, it could be weeks or months before you notice there’s something that needs repairing.
You want to avoid a vacant property, for the good of your investment home and to get your income flowing and your ROI stabilized.
