Without maintenance, real estate starts to fall apart. A basic rule in physics is that things tend towards maximum disorder, which means things fall apart. It’s a reality in nature. In case you’re wondering, it’s called Entropy and is dealt with in physics as the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. We are mentioning this because it’s real. Roofs eventually leak, siding deteriorates, wood rots, metal rusts, mechanical systems fail, etc. Without ongoing maintenance, you will have bigger and more expensive problems in the future because one problem leads to another. It just happens. So, our motto is “solve the problem before it becomes a problem”.
Most people can usually tell immediately whether the house has been kept up or not. Maintenance definitely affects value. So, obviously the moral of the story is to keep up on maintenance!
