The disadvantages of a vacant house
A vacant house is very often exposed to complex situations. These problems can easily cause their maintenance to become unprofitable.
A risk for insurers
Insurers are generally wary when it comes to insuring a vacant home. Understandably, this situation involves more risk of damage, fires or even vandalism, unlike an occupied home.
A greater risk in the face of acts of vandalism
Vandals are attracted to vacant homes. It is therefore important to remain discreet about this information. However, it is difficult to keep it a secret for long. It then becomes wise to strengthen the security system. This will, however, increase expenses even further, and the situation could be stressful for the owner.
Relatively expensive maintenance
A vacant home requires maintenance regardless of the season. The cost of these operations varies depending on the period. Devoting a budget becomes imperative the day you decide to move and still keep an unoccupied house. In winter, for example, snow must be removed from the roof. In summer, it is possible to have to maintain the swimming pool for example. This maintenance is even sometimes required by municipalities. No need to risk exposing yourself to sanctions.
