Property maintenance is a generalised service that includes other minor maintenance services (e.g. carpentry, plumbing, cleaning, etc.) and is aimed at ensuring that the client’s property is well-cared for. For example, residential property maintenance involves maintaining domestic properties and is usually availed of by homeowners who lack the time and skills to do the job themselves. Many brokers also property maintenance service providers in order to increase the property’s market value so they can sell it at a higher price.
