29th December 2008, 01:41 PM
my boss has been asking me to buy a landed property. has been discussing with my hubby about this issue. we have recently just bought a private appartment unit near kembangan mrt that comes with tenancy. so thinking of buying another landed property for rental. but i want to know the cost of maintenance so i can budget that into the rental / advise the tenant the average cost of maintenance. what i'm refering to are pest control, refuse charges, lawning etc.

you want to know cost of maintenance for Landed home right?

Really depending on the size of the house;

Things you need to maintain;

1) Garden - usually about $80 per month to as high as $550 per month
2) pool/pond (if any) - usually about 150 per month to as high as $200 per month
3) autogate - probably one time about $100
4) pest control - roughly $50 per trip
5) aircondition unit - per unit about $20 to $30
6) Alarm System - about $180 per quarter.
