Especially with single family homes, it is advised to have financial reserves on hand to cover at least one month’s worth of expenses in case a tenant moves suddenly due to job loss, transfer, or other emergency circumstances. This is a proactive measure.
Anticipate that if a tenant moves from a property after an extended tenancy, there may be expenses necessary related to painting and flooring due to normal wear and tear.
