    It would be more attractive when (services includes)
    1/. Claims are made a speed home would assist owners with claim reports on a joint inspection.

    2/. Assist with minor repairs. Speed home acting as a bridge between owners and tenant and assist rectification or advice owners if repairs are claimable. Especially when agreement extended over a year.

    After all Speedhome has already screen the tenants thus how much can they lose providing this simple services.
