As your co-host we can coordinate repairs for you. If something needs fixing talk with us about what repairs are needed, when the listing should be repaired, and how expenses will be handled. If a repair needs to get expensed, we can always use Airbnb’s resolution center.
“Repairs and maintenance” is often used as a term for anything that needs doing to a property, but there are actually four quite different categories involved. For any property owner who is serious about maximizing their return, all four types of expenses should be regularly considered.
Repairs occur when something goes wrong as a reactive response. An example would be a blocked pipe, a non-functioning oven or a roof that suddenly starts leaking.
This is the planned replacement of any item in the property that depreciates in value, including carpets, blinds, ovens, hot water systems, insect screens, etc.
These items should be regularly addressed to ensure the number of repairs in the previous category is kept to a minimum.
This is any new element that is introduced into the property. Examples include:
installing a dishwasher
adding a new pool
installing a reverse cycle air-conditioner
