A client of mine went with three larger apartments instead of four smaller ones when she renovated a nice building she purchased last summer.
Now why did she do that?
For a number of reasons:
-to reduce the level of complexity in terms of her property management
-to keep the number of leases she has to contend with lower
-to reduce churn in her tenant base
-to increase her rents for each unit and presumably get better tenants as well
-to reduce her maintenance and repairs, wear and tear
-to do less renovation/construction work for only slightly less income
This is a reminder that it’s not always about maximizing—it’s about optimizing your portfolio.
