Life Expectancy of Appliances

Hello, Owners! Being a landlord comes with a lot of responsibility, including the maintenance of your rental property. To help you better budget your average annual maintenance costs, we have a conservative "average life-span of common household appliances" chart to share with you.
Air-Conditioners 13 Years
Dishwasher 10 Years
Dryer 13 Years
Garbage Disposal 12 Years
Microwave 8 Years
Range - Electric 15 Years
Range - Gas 17 Years
Refrigerator 13 Years
Washer 11 Years
Water Heater 10 Years
It would be a safe assumption that approximately 8% of your annual rent income will be spent on maintenance. Here at PRANDI Property Management, Inc., CRMC, we have found this to be an appropriate number, and we hope that it will help you with your budget. Please contact your Assistant Property Manager for additional details on your rental home here in Marin County! -- Cristy Boucher, CSS Assistant Property Manager
