Vacation Rental Component Life Expectancy

Your vacation rental is a big financial investment, so it's important to budget annually for repairs that might be needed and anticipate when things need replacing. You can save yourself some money in the long run by making sure your appliances and furnishings last as long as possible! We've put together this list of how old certain vacation rental fixtures should get before they're replaced or repaired.

  • Sofas and Couches: 7 - 15 years
  • Carpet: 8 - 10 years
  • Mattress: 5 - 10 years
  • Pillows: 18 - 36 months
  • Refrigerator: 13 years
  • Stove: 13 - 15 years
  • Washing Machine: 11 years
  • Dryer: 8 - 12 years
  • Coffee Pot: 2 - 3 years
  • Dishwasher: 9 years
  • Microwave: 9 years
  • HVAC: 12 - 16 years
  • Kitchen Faucet: 15 years
  • Water Heater: 10 years

The life expectancy of these items may be more or less, depending on how often your vacation rental is being used by guests. If your vacation rental is rented more than 75% of the time, chances are, these items will need repair or replacement in a shorter time frame. 

Keeping your vacation rental in the best possible condition ensures a happy guest stay and more consistent five star reviews.
