Property Maintenance estimated cost
It is hard to give an exact estimate or a cost for maintenance work because different types of maintenance work have different costs at the end. You can get a very close estimate if you know the factors that influence the cost. Three main factors that are usually accounted for are:
- How old is the property
- Living cost
- Availability of skilled labor
